We're mixing it up GovCon style in Minneapolis with a small and intimate network mixer just outside of downtown. This means to attend you'll need to pre-register to reserve a spot at this awesome event!
First things first. There will be some great food and beverage courtesy of your hosts, The American Small Business Coalition, EMD Strategies and ClearedConnections to curb your appetite and thirst. Be sure to bring plenty of business cards and an appetite for knowledge and opportunity.
This event is also a fundraiser to support the great work being done by Ranger Karl Monger and his team at GallantFew. Don't know about GallantFew? This is the organization we supported on December 6th with over $20,000 in donations from government contractors in DC/MD/VA during our Holiday Charity Bash event in Tysons Corner, VA. Their mission is to prevent veteran isolation by connecting new veterans with hometown veteran mentors, thereby facilitating a peaceful, successful transition from military service to a civilian life filled with hope and purpose. Your entire registration fee of $25 is going directly to GallantFew and you will receive a charitable donation receipt and acknowledgement from them once we submit your information collected during registration.
