This one’s not ’til early October, but like it or not the summer’s almost over and September will most assuredly sneak up on all of us. City Treasurer Stephanie Neely is co-sponsoring this event, which is expected to attract 3,000 entrepreneurs and business folks like Seth Kravitz, Troy Henikoff and loads of other household names that are revered throughout the community. It’ll be a chance to mingle, to hustle and to get your name out there.
