AlligatorZone is where kids meet cool startups. Parents, children and youth can meet and talk to local startup founders in a community-gathering that celebrates entrepreneurship. Guide the entrepreneurs so they can avoid the metaphorical alligators that can hurt their enterprise. Steer them successfully across the AlligatorZone and participate in local innovation in a unique and exciting way. Bring your family along to learn about the local startups' offerings, and share your perspective with the founders in a live interactive exchange. Let the entrepreneur(s) tap into the collective wisdom of the community! Here's a link to a report of a recent session in another location. We encourage kids and youth in the audience to also join the others in asking the entrepreneurs questions about their offerings and voicing their opinions. For parents, current and future entrepreneurs, please read the philosophy behind AlligatorZone.
