Jax Chamber Startup Quest – Innovation Hits the First Coast

2013 08 Commercial Chamber 07 Startup Quest

Last week we again worked with the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce, this time covering the final session and award reception for a new program – Startup Quest.   If you have seen Shark Tank, you’ve got an idea of what this is all about.  One of the first programs like this in the United States, Startup Quest is designed as a 10 week entrepreneurship simulator for degree-holding professionals in the Jacksonville area.  Each group took 10 weeks to research, develop and finally present their innovation to a panel of judges who weighed a variety of criteria to determine the winning team (below).  My verdict – this program is a great way to gain additional skills and an entrepreneurial spirit!

Celebrating Accomplishments with the Jax Chamber

2013 07 Commercial Chamber Graduation 01 Jacksonville

Last week we had the privilege of again working with the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce to capture the awards gala for two groups of Jacksonville-area women entrepreneurs.   The Marketing Matters group graduated after many months of workshops, one-on-one mentoring and development designed to help them take their businesses to the next level.  Similarly, the Developing Your Family Childcare Business group gathered to celebrate the graduation of both their 2012 and 2013 classes.

Marketing Matters at the Jacksonville Chamber!

Just last night we had the pleasure of shooting an event for our friends at the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce.  The Women’s Business Center offers some great resources to the community, including some wonderful mentoring programs.  Last night we celebrated the graduation of one of these groups, the 2012 Marketing Matters class!  Over the past few years, we’ve volunteered our time as mentors to this wonderful program, though this year our calendar wouldn’t allow it.  Check out some of our favorite photos below – and of course, congratulation to all the 2012 graduates!
