What is RocGrowth Coffee?

An informal morning event designed to facilitate USEFUL collisions by sharing inspiring stories and empowering the new generation of entrepreneurs in Rochester. Free coffee and bagels will be provided by our underwriters. It’s affiliated with RocGrowth Candids.

Why attend?

To meet and befriend other Rochester innovators and become familiar with potentially helpful resources. RocGrowth Coffee is a way for you to hear about new ideas, offer YOUR assistance, and announce YOUR ideas to a community of thinkers, entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists!

Format

RocGrowth Coffee will highlight several pre-selected local innovators. These entrepreneurs will have a few minutes to introduce themselves and describe their endeavor. More importantly, they will ask the community for some specific form of support that could range from technical skills to customer identification.

The audience (YOU) will be able to connect with each other and the entrepreneurs before and after the presentations, over coffee and breakfast. Most of the time will be unstructured networking.

You too can present: If you would like to be among the innovators who present to the group for THREE minutes, e-mail info@rocgrowth.com. Briefly introduce yourself, explain a project or business you’ve started, and make a request for specific assistance. We have limited the number of presenters to four.

Breakfast & coffee is generously provided by: Carlson Cowork & Landsman Real Estate Services.

RSVP: Required. Event is free with capacity limited to 100.

Preparing Your Business for the Voice Search Revolution | Silver Screen Coworks @ Silver Screen Coworks

Join us at Silver Screen Coworks on December 10, 2019 from 5:30pm to 7:00pm as we discuss the Voice Search Revolution.

As of right now there’s 312 million internet users in the U.S. alone conducting over 1 billion voice searches per month. But they’re also doing much more than asking mundane questions. They’re ordering groceries through their Google Homes, requesting commonly selected goods from Amazon through Alexa, and finding a favorite new restaurant while in the car through Siri.

To better put it into perspective, 50% of all internet searches will be conducted through voice search by 2020.

This workshop will cover the ways in which Voice Search Readiness will affect website SEO, sales and your businesses’ visibility on the web.

There will be demonstrations on how Voice Search benefits your business along with free Visibility Reports that indicate how voice ready your business is.

The Greenest City: Climate Change as Opportunity @ Troy Innovation Garage

The Greenest City: Climate Change as Opportunity @ Troy Innovation Garage

GARAGE TALKS is a dynamic new series of keynote lectures and masterclasses that will explore issues of urbanism, community, and climate change.

The season of five events, hosted by the Troy Innovation Garage, will take place from September 2019 – May 2020 and will each feature a nationally-recognized speaker presenting case studies of urban problem solving in action. The Garage Talk series will culminate in a forum around public art in cities and produce a visually-rich publication documenting the yearlong conversation.

At each event, a panel of local leaders and thinkers from around the Greater Capital Region will respond to the visiting speaker’s presentation. The idea is to break down silos of provincial thinking even as we embrace the idiosyncrasies of our region—to draw out connections, lessons, best practices. All keynotes will be open to the public.

A Garage Talk Artist-in-Residence will live-illustrate each event, documenting the arc of the series as well as play a central role in the final event, which will include the creation of a commissioned piece of street art in the alleyways of Troy.
