September 29th Quarterly Dinner with:
- "Mentor Monday" Session hosted by Howard Gwin
- Presentation by Mark MacLeod, Founder, SurePath Capital Partners
We will start off our dinner with a "Mentor Monday" format, where two of our AceTech members will present to the audience a little about their business, and then a business problem they are struggling with, or an idea they are thinking of trying, or an issue that is keeping them up at night. The audience will then provide advice, ideas and mentorship to the member to assist.
Following this, Mark MacLeod will be speaking to the group. Since 1999 Mark MacLeod has been helping fund, grow and exit venture-backed startups. He has over 14 years experience as a CFO for leading companies such as
