A few details on what to expect:

The graduation starts with 30-45 minutes of socializing and a business fair. Graduates have displays with information about their businesses and some graduates have items to sample or purchase. This is a great opportunity to meet clients and ask them about their businesses and their experience with Ventures. Around 7:00pm, guests and graduates help themselves to a potluck dinner and get ready for the presentations. Each client then shares their business pitch and they receive their graduation certificate. It is a really inspiring event and great way to get a snapshot of the Ventures clients and to help them celebrate their achievement of making it through the core program.

Optional: Bring a beverage, appetizer or main dish to contribute to the potluck.
