Small Business Growth Panel

Growing Pains: Lessons from Edgewater’s Young Business Owners

The Small Business Growth Panel took place Thursday, October 25 at Uncommon Ground, and was an opportunity for attendees to hear from Edgewater’s leading business owners about their start up story. Our three panelists talked about what’s gone well on their journey to grow their business, what went wrong and their plans for the future. This year’s panel focused on how these under 40 business owners first marketed their new businesses – a bakery, a gym and a candle maker – so that their brand stood out from the crowd. We had a wonderful time learning from these savvy, young business owners, and a brilliant night of networking!






Is this panel for me?

Growing Pains: Lessons from Edgewater’s Young Business Owners was open to the general public, and ideal for anyone interested in expanding their startups or new businesses. Especially when thinking about transitioning from an online business or hobby to a brick and mortar company. Sole proprietors and consultants eager to learn how to expand and solidify their company’s brand also greatly benefited from this panel.
