Memorial Tournament Hospitality House on 18

Wednesday, June 1, 2016

11:00 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Featuring Collaborator/Entrepreneur Ben Blanquera

Join Ben as he discusses how collaboration is an ever-growing and important vehicle for empowering the amazing growth Columbus is currently experiencing.  He will focus on some of the many types of collaboration that we are seeing among thought leaders and catalysts in Columbus today: supporting the success of startups in entrepreneur centers, working towards the greater good through social entrepreneurship, large companies working side-by-side towards common goals, and communities helping one another. The end goal would be to understand how collaboration is our home town’s effective growth tool and how we can each be part of this dynamic movement.
