OXFORD – Spurred by the idea of connecting business newcomers to the know-how of experienced entrepreneurs, a newly formed committee will host an informal entrepreneur roundtable event starting at 7 p.m. Thursday inside Oxford Academy Primary School’s multipurpose room.
The event will be open to anyone with a mind for business and the desire to bring original ideas into fruition. A number of local business owners and entrepreneurs will be in attendance to discuss the ins and outs of running their business, and to answer questions.
The purpose, according to Oxford Academy Superintendent Shawn Bissetta, is to encourage conversations among youth and adults which foster creativity and innovation.
“It’s a chance to talk about ideas, even small ideas, that could have a huge benefit to the community,” Bissetta said. “This is a way that we can encourage each other in the areas of business and entrepreneurship that we can control in order to make the community a better place.”
