Session Title: Fireside Chat & Chew

The Entrepreneurs Foundation (EF) is passionate about entrepreneurship and supporting entrepreneurs and their teams build successful corporate cultures that contribute to their performance in the communities where they operate.

In 1999, EF was formed in order to provide a vehicle for local tech companies to set aside equity that they could later use to give back in their communities. Since our inception, we have helped our 300+ (over time) and 100+ active member companies raise over $10 million and 90,000 volunteer hours for other nonprofits.

Join us for a unique fireside chat with a stellar group of local tech leaders who are ready for a rapid fire Q&A on how giving back and getting involved in the community is good for their company cultures and businesses.
