AlligatorZone is where kids meet cool startups. This is a program for all ages 7 and above. Children and youth, as well as their accompanying families can meet and talk to 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 entire family along to learn about the local startups' offerings, and exchange perspectives with the founders in a live interactive exchange. We encourage grown-ups in the audience to join the kids in asking the entrepreneurs questions about their offerings and, of course, voicing their opinions and suggestions. See videos and blog posts about AlligatorZone at twitter.com/alligatorzone. and AlligatorZone.org.
