Virtual Coffee, Friday, April 17, 2020

April 17, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

RocGrowth Virtual Coffee

We are hosting “Take 2” of Give and Take, the virtual rendition of RocGrowth Coffee. Our first Give and Take event on March 27th had 52 participants and generated an outpouring of financial and in-kind support for our community partners providing aid and comfort to those who have been hardest hit by the pandemic. (It was recorded and can be viewed at RocGrowth.com.)

Given the mounting challenges and the need for the community to “lock hands” in mutual support, we are hosting the next Give and Take Zoom call Friday, April 17th, 8-9am.

We request participants arrive prepared to offer or request assistance as we manage through these unprecedented challenges. We “set the table” and you bring the coffee.

What is RocGrowth Virtual Coffee?
An informal ZOOM call designed to facilitate Creative Collisions by sharing inspiring stories and empowering Rochester’s New Generation of innovators and entrepreneurs. Coffee and breakfast provided by you.

Why attend?
We are dedicated to building Rochester’s community of innovators and entrepreneurs. We are problem solvers, job creators and creatives leading our region to its rightful place among the top cities for innovation and quality of life.


RocGrowth Virtual Coffee will highlight several pre-selected local innovators. These entrepreneurs will have a couple of minutes to introduce themselves and describe their endeavor. More importantly, they will ask the community for a specific form of support or assistance.

The audience (YOU) will be able to connect with each other and the entrepreneurs before and after the presentations, over coffee and breakfast.

You will be attending this Virtual Coffee using your computer or mobile device using Zoom. PLEASE make sure you have downloaded and are equiped with the software app beforehand.

This event has a large following and we have a limited number of openings for participants.

Please apply if you can commit to participating.

Kindly cancel your reservation if your plans change so that we can open

your slot for someone else on the waiting list.

RSVP required. Event is free.

Breakfast and Coffee are generously provided by YOU.
