Why should I attend? What should I expect to learn, experience or takeaway from the event?

Founder Hour gives our founders the opportunity to learn more about their peers, heighten collaboration, and network with the AC community!

Once a month, two founders share a little bit about themselves, their companies, and their experiences as trailblazers in their industry. At the end of each speaker’s talk, there will be time for questions and networking for all attendees.

Join us as we hear from Thyagi and Brigitta!
