Biz Buzz

Biz Buzz

What is it? A growing community of business startups and entrepreneurs who meet to hear from one of their community about their successes and challenges. After about a 10 minute business presentation the attendees then ask questions of the speaker. The 20 minute Q&A session that occurs is focused on helping both the speaker and attendees. The last 30 minutes are left for the group to network.

When is it? 9:00 to 10:00 every Wednesday (Well almost every Wednesday so signup for the Meetup to get an invitation in your email box.)

Where is it? Florence Lauderdale Public Library at 350 N Wood Ave, Florence, AL 35630.

Who should attend? Business owners, startups, entrepreneurs, and interested community members

Who is sponsoring Biz Buzz? The Shoals Chamber of Commerce, the University of North Alabama College of Business, the Shoals Entrepreneurial Center and the Florence-Lauderdale Public Library worked together on this important Strategic Doing initiative.

Can I present? Submit your request including your name, company name, website, and contact info to 

I am presenting. What is my preparation? Before you present you are advised watch the Kauffman Founders School (KFS) Powerful Presentation Series.  If you make a powerful presentation the Biz Buzz attendees and you will have a much better experience.

Prepare a 6- 10 minute presentation and incorporate learnings from the KFS Powerful Presentation Series into your presentation. You know your company but telling the story you want to convey to get the discussion going takes preparation. Make the most of your opportunity to learn and network so set aside time to practice, practice, and more practice. Then meet the Biz Buzz team at 8:30 to set up.
