Every great thing out there started as somebody’s crazy idea.
At our community nights, you will find free refreshments, drinks, free childcare, and a welcoming community brimming with energy and expertise. Startups are here to change the world, and we’re here to help them. Everyone has something to give and something to learn. You don’t have to know what that is when you walk in—that’s what we’re here for. Whether you become a lead mentor, apply for intensive training as an entrepreneur, or just dip in whenever your schedule allows, you start by simply showing up.
Whether you’re a potential mentor, an entrepreneur, or just “startup curious,” the best way to experience VVM is to dive in at our monthly Community Night on the 2nd Wednesday of each month in Springfield.
DUE TO COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS ALL COMMUNITY NIGHTS ARE CANCELED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
