Event Details

Powered by Fresh Start Cherokee, located at The Circuit, and hosted by the Cherokee Office of Economic Development.

 The Lunch Circuit is the first official event series of Fresh Start Cherokee. It is an exclusive monthly lunch gathering to build community and learn the stories behind Cherokee County entrepreneurs (lunch included in ticket price).

Entrepreneurs can meet other local entrepreneurs, both current and aspiring, share a meal and learn the story of a Cherokee County entrepreneur. At each Lunch Circuit, we live interview a different entrepreneur on wins, losses, and lessons learned on their adventure. Then, we finish up with audience Q&A giving up-close-and-personal and exclusive access to the community.

UP NEXT ON OCTOBER 23, 2019 - Will Goodwin, Founder and Visionary of The Oak House - an innovative community and Canton's first coworking space. Will is the Lead Pastor of Oak Leaf Church and Founding Director of The Oak House, a coworking venue in Downtown Canton, and Ember Bridge, a creative agency specializing in media and messaging. When not helping his beautiful wife and three teenage boys keep goats and chickens alive on their homestead, Will enjoys writing songs no one will ever hear and figuring out which Chick-Fil-A menu item is his favorite.

The Oak House is a ministry of Oak Leaf Church. We wanted to create a space that brings people to together and helps meet needs within our community. In other words, we didn't see a purpose in having a building that sat empty most of the time and now our building is as much about our mission as the people who meet here on Sunday. The Oak House provides a unique opportunity to serve and prove God's love to more people than we would with our doors locked and lights off.

Some people think we are crazy to turn our building into a coworking space. We think it was the only real option. For years, we have opened our facility to all sorts of groups and gatherings and have been giving away the best coffee in town. All we really did was leverage our space between Sundays to make how we were already doing more organized, official, and fiscally responsible. The Oak House allows us to have more conversations and build more relationships than we would ever have without it.

Here is how this event* will flow:

11:15 am - Check-in begins, Networking

11:30 am - 11:50 am Lunch and Conversation

11:50 am - 12:00 pm Welcome & Introduction

12:40 pm - 12:55 pm Audience Q&A

12:55 pm - 1:00 pm Conclusion, announcing our next month's entrepreneur

*Event cost is $20/person and includes lunch, community, and the program. Seats are limited to 30. We prefer for attendees to be an aspiring or current entrepreneur.

This is one in a series of Fresh Start Cherokee programs designed to create a culture of entrepreneurship in Cherokee County and help entrepreneurs launch and grow their business and startup close to home. Hosted by the Cherokee Office of Economic Development and located at The Circuit.
