Info Sessions

With lots of cool stuff happening around Springboard, and with John on sabbatical for the month of August, we're holding off on info sessions and reviewing new Incubator applications until after September 6th. We'll respond to new inquiries about Incubator after that date. Thanks for your patience!

We hold monthly info/Q&A sessions for Incubator on the fourth Wednesday of every month at noon. For the foreseeable future, we'll be holding this meeting via Zoom. Let us know if you'd like to attend and we’ll send you info on how to connect. Members and non-members alike are welcome.
