Description

Join us for this launch, lunch and learn and get all the details about the HTC’s newest roundtable – the Founders Forum! The Founders Forum will provide a safe place for solopreneurs, entrepreneurs and early-stage business owners to share and receive advice, mentorship, peer support, accountability, skills learning, business best practices and advice from subject matter experts as well as group members.

If you are a start-up who works alone or in virtual offices with little or no staff and you want to be part of a supportive community of other like-minded individuals, business leaders, and subject matter experts, then this group is for you.

Founders Forum will be led by Michelle Boucher, CEO of Business Breakthrough and Zachary Cochran, CEO of Cochran Coaching. Come for lunch, learn about the program, ask questions, and sign-up to join this newest HTC member benefit! The roundtable officially starts on January 9, 2019 and will occur the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 8:30-10:00 a.m.

About our presenters:

Michelle Boucher is a passionate entrepreneur and marketing maven who has won awards and changed industries with her visionary work. She’s a six-time entrepreneur and has more than 20 years of marketing experience. Michelle’s involvement with the Howard Tech Council started in 2001, when she and her business partner received funding from the J. Rouse Entrepreneurial Fund through the Maryland Center for Entrepreneurship to start her online baby store, Baby Outfitters. Michelle has remained active in many of the HTC’s groups and leadership throughout her career.

In 2018, Michelle launched a pilot four-week business marketing course at the HTC over the summer, taking 16 students through an intensive and ground-breaking 12-module growth system, now called “E-SCHOOL”. She is launching E-SCHOOL in online form and continues to serve in the Health Tech Innovators group and as co-chair with Zachary Cochran of the upcoming Founders Forum.
