Gem City Entrepreneur Resource Fair & Startup Week Preview Party
The 2nd Annual Gem City Entrepreneur Resource Fair IS BACK!!!

In December of 2017, eight Dayton young black professionals hosted one of THE most successful community-wide resource/networking events for millennial and minority entrepreneurs. The event was such a success that we began collaborating with other more well known organizations that serve entrepreneurs, like Dayton Tech Guide and The Entrepreneur Center.

In June of 2018, we hosted a semi-annual entrepreneur resource fair during Dayton Startup Week. Another successful event in the books.

And now, in May of 2019, we will be collaborating with Dayton Tech Guide again to host the second Annual Gem City Entrepreneur Resource Fair, serving as the OFFICIAL kick-off event for Dayton Startup Week 2019!!!
