Brainstorming Business Ideas Over a Cup of Coffee

Do you have business expertise and you are willing to help others?

Please join us at the Braintree Business Development Center as we provide an atmosphere and forum in which entrepreneurs can test out ideas in front of a group of helpful professionals representing an array of industries.

We encourage you to bring your ideas, concepts and products no matter what stage of the development process you are in, and as a group we can explore the idea and help you to better position it for the market place.

If you have an existing business and need assistance to overcome some barrier to growth our group of seasoned entrepreneurs can provide help with removing your problems or barriers.
We meet the fourth Thursday of the month so put it on your schedule for next month.
