Johnson City’s summer Co-Starters course, a 9-week business accelerator program, concluded at the end of July. Hosted by JRH Brewing, there was a great turnout on hand to watch 5 of the Co-Starters participants give great pitches where you could clearly see the passion in each one of them. The company who catered this event is the same business we are going to feature.

Anne Gorman on her experience with the Co-Starters program and how it helped shape the direction of their company:
“Co-Starters helped to bring our ideas together in a creative and cohesive way. We are especially grateful for Ashley Cox (Facilitator for the course) and her ability to challenge us, and help us to dig into the “why” we were doing what we are doing. It was great to have some help creating a fundamentally sound business plan that we are confident with. Meeting various other professionals proved to be very helpful in building some resources to help us thrive as business owners and entrepreneurs. “
