Startup Garden program to come to Bowling Green

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- For anyone looking to get their business up and running, a new local workshop experience is on the way.

It’s called the Startup Garden, and it’s a networking event for the local entrepreneurial community. The event will feature guest speakers including investors, community leaders and service providers.

Starting June 2, a guest speaker will come in every other month at Mellow Mushroom on Chestnut Street from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. The guest speakers will give insight on how to successfully get your business running.

Dawn Johnson with the Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce says Bowling Green is a great place to start a business because of events like this.

“When you have a start up business, we like to get them together, and have them be around investors, business resource providers, other small businesses to find out the best ways to get connected and grow their business,” Johnson said.

The first guest speaker will be Buddy Steen, the CEO of WKU innovation campus.
