Sparking Impact Beyond Our Walls

May 12
As you all know by now, since our physical location closed in mid-March, we have been operating differently. As the resilient innovators that we are, we have adapted to the circumstances and moved towards creating virtual engagement opportunities for our community. 
In April, we held a total of 24 online connection events, 19 of which were hosted by our awesome co-tenants. We have had over 233 attendees across these events for the month of April. Our Nonprofit Connector event has been our most popular thus far with helpful insights from guest speakers across the sector.
We are very thankful that we are able to keep the relationships we have built in our physical space going strong in an inclusive online environment and are happy that so many of your have been able to join us. As a reminder not just co-tenants, but all Pillar members are free to join our regular Innovation Works weekly connections! Check out what each day has to offer below.
