Hugh Schuett, Programming Faculty at Metropolitan Community College, created the Fab Lab. What is a Fab Lab – why was it started – who can use it?? A Fab Lab is a local lab with the aim to make almost anything through personal, social and local manufacturing! As an entrepreneur, the Fab Lab can be used as an inexpensive way to create prototypes to help you get your business started or to grow it. You will want to attend this breakfast to learn all about the Fab Lab and how fortunate we are to have one in Omaha!!
Sandra Broadnax, Director of the Small Business Programs Office at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) in Springfield, VA, will give a brief presentation about opportunities that businesses/vendors could have that want to do business with NGA. She will be available after the breakfast also to speak with any individual that might be interested in learning more.
Presenters will include:
Kevin Jones – American Payment Systems
Ty Delley – Back2 Family
Jenni Chleboun – Western Douglas County Chamber of Commerce – HOST
So bring your business cards and at least one friend – make some contacts, have a great breakfast and have some fun!!!
WE WELCOME DOOR PRIZES TOO!!
(If you do bring a door prize, which is great, please limit it to one per business.)
