FounderBar--which runs once a month during FreeFriday from 3pm-6pm--is a series of micro conversations that happen cafe-style over coffee, beer and wine. This event is free but registration is required (to help us plan, organize the space, and provide adequate provisions).
What's FreeFriday? For once a month from 12pm-6pm, the Founders League co-working community is free and open to all. Come spend some QT in the community, test out the space and then stay for FounderBar and participate in a variety of startup related topics. You don't need to come to FreeFriday to participate in FounderBar activities...but you can!
In addition to the conversations that will happen (sample below), people can also just chill in the space, work privately, or hold their own impromtu activities. If all else fails, the foosball table will be ready for a tournament!
