Adversity is like a strong wind. It tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that we see ourselves as we really are. Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha

Independent Softwares online magazine kicks off nine-month story telling initiative to support entrepreneurs in Connecticut.

New Haven, Conn. (PRWEB) March 31, 2014

The Whiteboard, an online magazine and community-building platform that supports Connecticut entrepreneurs by sharing their stories, hosting events and connecting them to others who can help to grow their business, today announced the launch of The Whiteboard Startup Roadshow.

The roadshow will be a virtual and live journey around the state profiling top entrepreneurs and startups and uncovering compelling reasons for entrepreneurs to start their business, or keep it, in Connecticut. The launch event for the roadshow will be on Tuesday, April 1, from 6 to 9 p.m. at The Grove Annex, 300 State Street in New Haven.

The event will feature speakers from entrepreneurs across the state, including:

Ned Gannon: CEO of eBrevia, a Stamford-based startup and one of four national winners in Startup America
Dave Marcoux: CEO of Hartford Denim Company, a downtown Hartford sensation, now being courted by Timberland and other major retailers
Mallory Kievman: CEO and 15 year-old inventor of Hiccupops, and 2012 Invention Convention winner
Kate Harrison: CEO of Green Life Guides and founder of GreenBrideGuide.com

The event will include food and refreshments from New Havens Elm City Market, Bridgeports Whisk and Brush, Stamfords Planet Fuel, and other local startups. The event will also include an open-microphone session for entrepreneurs to share their stories.

What we have found is that there are pockets of innovation all over the state, said Suzi Craig, Director of Community Development with Independent Software. The purpose of the roadshow is to unearth the stories, entrepreneurs and startups around the state and shed light on the innovators that create jobs, launch new products and technologies and inspire the communities they live in. We think whether you are there in person or tracking the roadshow virtually, you will be surprised at the number of motivating stories we uncover.

From April to December 2014, the roadshow will visit a different area of the state each month and host an event that is open to the public and provides an opportunity for the local entrepreneurial community to come together.

The upcoming roadshow calendar includes:

April: Stamford-Greenwich-South Norwalk
May: Hartford-Manchester
June: New Haven
July: Bridgeport-Fairfield
August: New London-Norwich
September: Storrs-Windham
October: Danbury-Waterbury
November: Middletown-Meriden
December: Torrington and wrap-up party

By the end of the roadshow, we will be able to share a treasure trove of stories from each region and see a larger, stronger, and more connected startup community statewide, said Craig.

The Whiteboard was created and is managed by Independent Software of New Haven.
