[Updated with Actual Press Release] (Startups should still arrive 9/9:30 for setup.)

Connecticut Congresswoman Esty to help celebrate National Startup Day in Watertown with local businesses at CT Hackerspace August 4th.

Watertown, Connecticut – August 1, 2016 – CT Hackerspace, a local community workshop, will be hosting an open gathering and discussion among local businesses with U.S. Representative Elizabeth Esty in celebration of National Startup Day.  Local Business Startups and Media are invited to attend this event.

August 4th is Startup Day Across America. Startup Day Across America connects elected officials with the startups in the communities they represent, so they can learn about the challenges new companies face and meet the business leaders building the future. Startup Day Across America also provides local entrepreneurs with an opportunity to educate their elected officials about how federal policy can support their efforts to test new ideas, create new products, and grow their businesses.

Congresswoman Esty will visit the 4,000 square foot workshop at approximately 10 AM. CT Hackerspace will exhibit some of the innovative products they have created along with hosting a roundtable discussion. Local Connecticut startups, innovation spaces, entrepreneurial financing establishments and colleges/universities  are all openly invited to participate. Participants who would like an exhibit space are to call CT Hackerspace and reserve a table for the event at (203) 450-4247. (Exhibit space is limited)

CT Hackerspace requests that any participants (and media) attending the event to stay clear of parking at the “upper” parking lot adjacent to the loading docks on site because it is an active drive for local businesses. CT Hackerspace recommends instead for attendees to park in the lower parking lot adjacent to Depot Street Square, or in available parking across the street adjacent to Deland field.

A hackerspace is a community lab, workshop and / or studio where people of diverse backgrounds can come together to share resources and knowledge to create and invent all types of innovative products.

Bill Saturno, President of CT Hackerspace, commented “We are very excited and looking forward to Congresswoman Esty’s visit and having the opportunity to support Connecticut’s startup business economy”.
