Burning Plan: Ric Geyer, 787 Windsor

Let's talk about a business in a TOTALLY DIFFERENT WAY!

At Burning Plan, an entrepreneur or team is given the chance to present their business plan entirely.  Then, they will tell you what they don't know about what they are trying to do. The audience is there to help them brainstorm and think through the gaps in the plan.

Monthly at General Assembly in Ponce City Market


THIS MONTH:  Ric Geyer, 787 Windsor.  He presented an idea for a furniture company last summer.  Now that he's gotten that started, he's decided to take his mission a little bigger. His real aim was to provide jobs & revitalize neighborhoods.  Along the path to launch the Val-Kill furniture line, he ended up with a real estate development. With this pivot, he can help launch and grow other companies like his own - his impact might be 10x as many new jobs. . . and then there is the effect on the neighborhood.  Come hear about the journey.  Come ask questions about your own pivot!
