SMARTstart Entrepreneur Roundtables

What is an Entrepreneur Roundtable?

Entrepreneur Roundtables bring small business owners and early-stage venture founders together on a monthly basis for an exchange of information, challenges, and insights. Groups typically include 6 to 10 members from diverse industries, in a confidential setting, to share the challenges and rewards of entrepreneurship and how it impacts life at work and home.

How would you like to be part of a group that helps you:

  • Increased profitability
  • Validate ideas
  • Become a better, more knowledgeable, business-owner
  • Make better informed decisions
  • Sharpen your visionary thinking
  • Enhance your overall personal satisfaction
  • Forecast issues facing your business
  • Create an advisory council of trusted peers

Participating in an Entrepreneur Roundtable

Qualification Criteria

  • Employ less than 10 people in full-time positions
  • Principle place of business is located in Pasco County
  • Not a publicly traded company
  • More than 50% of sales are from within Pasco County

How much time is needed?

Once a group is formed, members meet monthly for 1.5 hours and dive into candid discussions focused on their issues unique to startups and early-stage businesses. These groups have resulted in:  strategic partnerships, idea validation, better informed decision making, more effective visionary thinking, increased profitability, and enhanced personal satisfaction.

Services Provided

  • Monthly Facilitated Meeting
  • Guest Speakers

Program Cost

You have the opportunity to attend two meetings to decide if this is a right fit for you and your business, see how to join below. If you decide to join a roundtable the annual cost is $150 a year. Participating in the Roundtable is free for SMARTstart Business Incubator Members.

Guest Speakers

Although peer-to-peer mentoring is highly beneficial, we often find that our entrepreneurs have very specific needs that require expert help.  That is when we invite our network of professionals to speak during our roundtable sessions.  During this time, our entrepreneurs have the opportunity to ask open and honest questions about the issues facing their company and receive instant feedback and answers directly from an expert in the field.

Goals

The goals of the program are to help Pasco startups and early-stage companies work more efficiently, become more strategic, create more job opportunities, and to maintain a business presence in Pasco County.
