The next XcellR8 meeting will be held Thursday, January 13, 2011, from 8-9 am at Nerac.
There are no planned topics or presentations for the January meeting. Last year we took an opportunity to assess the economic outlook for 2010 and offer our predictions regarding the marketplace. My suggestion for those that might be interested would be to again seek the collective wisdom of the group for the 2011 Outlook.
Discussions last month confirmed that the greatest interest lies in the individual newco or hi-tech start up business plan evaluations and the idea development discussions which surround problem solving by the group. Please share the names of those individuals or companies you’d like to introduce to the group.
A Tolland resident and recent 2x attendee, Karen Kramer, has expressed interest is seeking the group’s input on a number of potential business ideas she has. Karen is a former K-12 teacher looking to branch out in a new direction. Please let me know if you’d be willing to spend time shaping and honing Karen’s thoughts.
If you would, please also respond indicating if you’d like to remain on the XcellR8 invitee mailing list. It is that time of year when annual list housekeeping chores are in order.
I look forward to seeing you all again on January 13th. My Very Best Wishes for a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!!
