SpringBoard Round Tables provide additional opportunities for SpringBoard businesses to continue to learn and grow after entrepreneurs have completed the nine week business planning course. We invite local experts on topics and issues concerning small business to engage in in-depth Q & A sessions with inquiring minds. Topics vary by month, and include small business insurance, commercial lease terms, social media basics, and intellectual property rights, to name a few.
Who: Open to all past and current SpringBoard participants; some round tables are open to the public
Dates: The third Monday of every month – see schedule below
Time: 6:00 PM-7:30 PM
Location: ArtWorks (20 E Central Pkwy, Cincinnati, 45202) unless otherwise noted.
Cost: Free for SpringBoard participants. Round tables open to the public are $10 for non-Springboard participants.
