July 17 Fresh Start Mornings. Hosted by the Cherokee Office of Economic Development, Fresh Start Mornings is about entrepreneurial education for the next generation and providing support for innovators and startups.

Fresh Start Morning events are free and open to the public. Events have one of two formats: educational discussions relevant to startups and scaling businesses or startup business owners sharing their journey as a small business owner and challenges they are facing in growing their business. Presenters can be either in the concept phase seeking feedback or have been in business for 5 years or less. After each presentation, the audience of peer entrepreneurs will ask questions and provide insight.

These meetings are typically twice a month (on the first and third Wednesdays of each month, but there is no meeting on July 3). Locations oscillate between Woodstock (at the Circuit) and Canton (at Reformation Brewery).
