Center for Business Development at Meridian Technology Center open house; Public invited to visit with entrepreneurs and tour facility on April 7
STILLWATER, Okla. – The success of entrepreneurs comes from deep within. For most of them, it started with an idea. That idea turned into a dream. With a lot of hard work, that dream has turned into a reality.
On April 7 from 3:30 – 5:30 pm the public is invited to meet entrepreneurs who are behind the ideas growing in the Center for Business Development at Meridian Technology Center. Guest can visit with tenants, tour their companies and learn more about the impact of entrepreneurship across the Meridian district and the state.
“Great ideas have become viable businesses for our tenants. These entrepreneurs have met a need in their respective industries and created jobs for our community.
