Business development organizations coming together for entrepreneurial summer party


Several entrepreneurial and business development organizations are coming together to host a summer party celebrating entrepreneurs and business owners in the Dayton area. The Dayton Entrepreneurial Summer Party will be on Thursday, July 11, at 5 p.m. at the Brightside Music & Event Venue.

The free event is hosted by Startup Grind Dayton, Dayton Tech Guide, The Entrepreneurs Center, Downtown Dayton Partnership, and Entrepreneurs Anonymous. "Entrepreneurship requires a huge output of energy and we know how important it is to press pause, reflect, and celebrate," said Candace Dalmagne-Rouge of Startup Grind Dayton. "That means providing time and space at our Summer Party to put away our laptops, spend time with friends, and cheer our collective wins."

KeAnna Daniels from Dayton Tech Guide sees the event as a great way for entrepreneurs to constructively use their time after working hard on their businesses. "Entrepreneurs invest so much time and energy in their business day after day. This event provides an opportunity for them to slow down for a couple of hours and connect with their community."

Ultimately, the Entrepreneurial Summer Party is a place for Dayton-area entrepreneurs to connect. "Entrepreneurship is extremely hard and can be isolating if you don’t surround yourself with people who 'get it,'" added Joe Harrison from Entrepreneurs Anonymous. "Our Entrepreneurial Summer Party is the perfect place to meet new professional friends, hear about and support their initiatives, and let your hair down."
