BRING TOGETHER NORTHEAST OHIO’S STARTUPS
Northeast Ohio has tons of startups and entrepreneurs, but rarely do they get together and cross the barriers of geography, accelerator, or office to connect and build relationships. Founder Fest brings all of the area’s startup founders together for an afternoon for food, discussions, and maybe a minor amount of beer.

WHO WILL BE THERE? 
Founders & entrepreneurs from all over Northeast Ohio will be in attendance. If you’re the current, recent, or future founder of a startup in software, physical goods, food, health, or any other product industries, please make the effort to come out and take part in our community.

WHERE & WHEN, EXACTLY?
Mark your calendar, Founder Fest is going down November 19th from 2pm to 8pm in the heart of MidTown. Your ticket gets you great chow from some of the area’s best food trucks, copious amounts of beer, and awesome programming created for and by your fellow entrepreneurs. We'll be having things going at JumpStart's office and the MidTown Tech Hive all afternoon.

WHAT'S THE AGENDA?
We're going to have multiple discussions about the process of starting and running a business where everyone can contribute:
