Kickass Entrepreneurs

Kickass Entrepreneurs

If you like hearing local entrepreneurs’ stories, visiting new venues and sharing that experience with others, then join Kick-Ass Entrepreneurs (KAE) of Silver City at our Story Time events, typically on the 2nd Wednesday of every month from 5:30-7:30ish PM.

KAE features storytellers who hail from across ages, stages and industries – from manufacturing to food startups.

And with time to schmooze with other smart, hardworking, motivated, creative and
supportive entrepreneurs and like-minded community members before and after every
Story Time event, you’ll get to experience for yourself just how friendly and collaborative OUR startup and entrepreneur community truly is.

Typical event flow:

5:30-6 Grab a Drink, Order Food + Schmooze
6-7ish Story Time + Audience Q+A
7-7:30 More Schmoozing

Generously sponsored by Suzi & Janey.

Modeled after Kick-Ass Entrepreneurs of Santa Fe (KAESF), which launched in 2018 and
organically grew to events consistently attended by 25–65 local fans of entrepreneurship,
community members and ecosystem partners each month, we’re proud to be part of a growing network of KAE Communities.
