Non-members may attend this special event for only $1,099 (price goes to $1,199 on January 1st). Registration includes one year of membership in the Small Biz Thoughts Technology Community.


The Small Biz Thoughts Technology Community Roundtable
is produced every month on the first Thursday. 

We bring in special guests, often from outside the technology community, to share new perspectives on business, creativity, and being successful.

We ask folks to go "off their script" and leave the PowerPoints behind. We have an open discussion about how they find success in a world that is always changing.

Some members tell us this is their favorite part of the SBT Technology Community. Join us. (Really)
