Entrepreneurs’ Café set for Tuesday at McBee’s

— Raleigh County will celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week by hosting the second New River Gorge Entrepreneurs’ Café at McBee’s Irish Pub and Restaurant in uptown Beckley Tuesday starting at 6 p.m.

The goal of the NRG Entrepreneurs’ Café is to provide a forum for local entrepreneurs to build a sense of community, increase their exposure and address their funding needs for projects.

Cost to attend is $20, and the majority of that amount is given to support a local project.

During dinner, businessman Dan Bickey, owner of Mine Power Systems Inc., will officially welcome everyone at 6:30 p.m. Then, beginning at 6:50 p.m., five entrepreneurs seeking financial support will take turns presenting their projects, and at 7:40 p.m., everyone who purchased a meal gets to vote for a favorite project. At 7:50 p.m., the project that receives the most votes receives a micro award to support its development.
