On behalf of the NextExecs' Leadership team we wish to thank everyone for their generous contributions and volunteer time for our 1st Annual #GIVEBACK Backpack Drive. Our initial goal was to fill at least 100 backpacks in time for back to school. We are happy to share that we successfully collected over 500 school supply items and filled close to 300 backpacks. We could not have done this without the generous support of our GBCC members.

Weekly Recap

The Annual Joint Networking Event with the Greater Silver Spring Chamber was a wild success.  Thanks to all who attended and a special thank you to our hosts at

Your Best Self Therapy.

The evening will begin with 30 minutes of registration and networking followed by a 45 minute barre3 class incorporating balance training, strength conditioning, cardio and breathwork. All you need to bring is comfortable yoga attire and a water bottle - the studio takes care of all other props. After class, stay for a facilitated discussion & workshop, followed by wine & mocktails provided by Leslie Frelow, Owner of Vino 301.

On Monday, September 12 at 9:00am, the Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO) will host its inaugural Tech Fair Tech Fair for Maryland entrepreneurs at The Hotel at the University of Maryland. Senator Ben Cardin, Chair of the Senate Small Business Committee, worked closely with TEDCO to create the fair, and he will deliver a keynote address.

Small businesses looking to broaden their footprint and increase future sales can interact with larger, established tech companies, like Grow with Google, Meta, TikTok, Square, and Microsoft, to learn about trainings, online platforms for sales, advertising techniques, cloud services, and more. Women and diverse startup founders and business owners who traditionally have been underserved by the entrepreneurial ecosystem are encouraged to attend and share news of the free fair with their networks.
