Our next Breakfast Series, is perfect for our Franklin County economy and exemplifies the history of what makes us tick! It will introduce and celebrate budding entrepreneurs through the efforts of Valley Venture Mentors. Paul Silva, Co-Founder and Executive Director, will describe the program since its origin in Springfield three years ago, and their desire to make it relevant throughout the Pioneer Valley. The Franklin County Community Development Corporation has assisted them here and co-hosted their monthly meetings for the past year. You will meet some of the entrepreneurs selected for the program, their mentors and the somewhat ambitious process that is followed to achieve success. The presenters are: Steve Longpre of Barnstorm Studios, Tamara Stenn of Kusikuy Clothing and Nancy Rothenberg of Spirit of the Heart Martial Arts, all of recently completed the program.
