Hello friend --


b1.jpgAn August Coworking Day update

On Aug. 29, the Bixel Exchange team had another successful Coworking Day event with our founders and advisors. We debuted a new workshop that utilized the expertise of our founders to create traction for startups. We are always grateful to meet new people and founders interested in taking their startup to the next level simply by learning something new or connecting with an advisor. As a heads up, we won’t be having a Coworking Day this month and will resume in October and November. Stay tuned for some exciting updates coming soon! And check out our new video that highlights our monthly coworking days.




Startup LAunch attends America’s SBDC conference

This month, America's Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) celebrated the 39th annual SBDC Conference in Long Beach, CA, and our Startup LAunch team was in attendance. This year’s theme was "Exchange & Experience," focused on leveraging basic principles of business growth into everyday interactions with clients. Amongst the 140+ workshops that were available to all the SBDC professionals from around the nation, the marketing workshops were some of the most insightful activities that helped us reshape the way we think about communications and sharing our resources to our community.

Thank you to our fellow SBDC partners for sharing this journey with us! Share our Instagram post, and be sure to follow some of the great partners tagged.
