Kate Berg recently approached us about an idea for an event at the Stamford Innovation Center. The idea was to have an event that just focuses on the people in the community, helping them share ideas, have fun and enjoy food, drink and music, instead of a demo or tech talk or a briefing on intellectual property. (Although we at SIC have become pretty good at running those sorts of events.).
The event is called the Art of Business and you can read a little more about the first Art of Business event here: http://www.artofbiz.org. The event takes place this coming Thursday, March 20th at 6pm. We’ll have food, wine, great people and music. I think its going to be a lot of fun.
