The Concept Stage category also had some notable companies too. Holm Made Toffee Co., Two Shy Brewing, Bluebird Cupcakery, Wrappin and Rollin, and Simple Screens were all founded by hard working people. They each had an interest in making their local community better through good business. And you guessed it – there are a few who are interested in listing and selling through SCOUT’s website & apps.
The keynote speaker Diane Mahoney touched on her personal trials when first starting out as an entrepreneur. And how she overcame them through persistence & determination. A lesson all of us can learn from.
The guest panel had great insight too. Tim Allen, Kyle Kipperman, Todd Edman, and Seth Buechley (who also spoke on gratitude), answered questions from the audience. A great learning experience to say the least. Gratitude was the main takeaway. Trevor Mauch shared a moving video & gave a few words of encouragement.
A special thank you to Kemberly Todd, Debbie Caterson, and John McCafferty for being exceptional hosts at the event. And to Mr. Chris Burnett for his continued hard work.
And thank you to anyone not mentioned here, but helped make everything a success.
