A new business themed event has sprung up in Portland! It began last month in a city that seems to have so many great options for business owners and entrepreneurs to network and meet one another. The monthly event takes place at Peloton Labs and is put on by Katalyst and Dream Local Digital as part of the collaboration series.
The event however is unique in a sense that it encourages those who attend to really be honest about their business and their fears. The first event featured some well known business owners like Chris Avantaggio of LiveME and Emily Straubel of The Red Lipstick Project. They told their stories of taking a leap, and facing fear. The event then allows the audience to ask questions and three audience members are drawn at random for those who want to speak. These attendees tell their story and get instant audience feedback.
This month’s theme is: Getting through tough times. The event will feature Maine hip hop artist Spose, Baxter Brewing founder Luke Livingston and Peloton’s founder Liz Trice. These three featured guests will tell their stories in a very honest environment. The event features Beer with from Baxter Brewing, food from Slab Sicilian Street Food and music by Dj Mosart. A unique atmosphere to network and here some great guests tell their stories. Come check out Peloton Speaks tonight 6-8pm at 795 Congress St at Peloton Labs.
