We’re excited to host our last Startup Standup of 2017 hosted by the Cuyahoga County Public Library! Startup Standup will take place at the Mayfield Branch on November 9, 2017, from 5—7 PM. The evening will feature 5 entrepreneurs pitching their ideas to the community and receiving invaluable feedback and resources.
So, why attend? The Cuyahoga County Public Library’s Innovation Center has become a major component in helping entrepreneurs create and grow their businesses. Everyone attending has the opportunity to tour the space throughout the evening of the event, and to talk about the library’s programming offerings and equipment available.
