About this event

Join us for a fun and relaxing evening as we kick off the holiday season with our 2019 Holiday Party, Startup Showcase, and Global Pitch Competition.  

We're taking a break from the Grind, relaxing, and giving thanks for everything we've been provided and our accomplishments during the year.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME.  We're really excited about hosting all those companies and teams that ground through the year and don't have their own party to attend.  WE'RE HOLDING YOUR PARTY FOR YOU! Come and bring the team, friends, customers, partners, family and enjoy the moments with us.
