Meeting Of The Minds

1 years ago


Last week, we hosted our inaugural "Meeting of the Minds" dinner, where we paired 15 seasoned entrepreneurs and community leaders with 15 of our Idea Factory youth entrepreneurs for a curated dinner event. After the invited mentors introduced themselves to the group and found their seats, the night progressed through three courses, during each of which our youth entrepreneurs sat across from a different mentor to discuss questions and concerns about what it is like to be a community leader in Salt Lake City. 



Our goal was to connect the entrepreneurial leaders of tomorrow with those of today. Leaders from: Cotopaxi, SLUG Magazine, Xmission, The Salt Lake Tribune, Chapul, Vive Juicery, Laziz, The Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute, Even Stevens, Miller Inspiration, Black Diamond, Chatbooksand more engaged with our teens to take action on building a better community.
