The Business of Building
I am reminded this week how much we all are in the business of building. As you look at the picture below you might think that I'm talking about construction and the excitement in building the new EDGE incubator and accelerator here in Tuscaloosa. And yes, my week included meetings about keys, furniture and technology as well as move-in dates.
At the same time, this year's Start-up Weekend had over 70 people packed in a room on campus talking about ideas, learning from each other and well - BUILDING businesses, skills and knowledge. In addition, many of these same students have been hanging out in our current space learning from business community leaders, talking to each other and BUILDING momentum.
BUILDING IS FUN. We invite you to join us in building our entrepreneurial ecosystem. Please take time to read about our events and ways to get connected.
We need more people to join our construction crew!
