We hope that you are doing well. Now, maybe more than ever, it is so important for entrepreneurs and start-ups to support one another. As many of you know, the Community Fund is one of the great programs we offer where our members can show off their hard work and pitch their business for an investment. This quarter, like many of your businesses, Geekdom has faced some huge logistical and financial obstacles. Despite this, I am so pleased that we are still able to give back to our industrious, local entrepreneurs through the Community Fund. We were excited by the amount and quality of applications we received this quarter. This also made the selection very competitive. In this update, I will be shining a spotlight on our awesome finalists.
Congratulations to our Community Fund Finalists!
