Founder Institute, Tech-Prize, The Racine Public Library and Insperity are excited to host our April Founders Night out, at the newly renovated Racine Public Library, Innovation Lab.  A number of people we engage with find themselves at that great place where they are starting a new business or are already in business and they are working hard to grow but are struggling to make that happen.  Hiring the people you need are a big part of that challenge. Insperity is a group that focuses specifically on this challenge and helping organizations work through this.  The keynote message of the night will focus on enabling the teams you need for your business.  This will include the process of hiring, options to do this, how you choose to implement your hiring process and multiple other supporting items for the Human Resource process.  You will have a chance to ask questions in the group settings and also during the networking time.  The balance of the night will be networking with people that are doing the same thing as you.  Meet people and make the connections that will help you and the people you meet.


Secure your spot by registering at the Tech-Prize Event Ticket page. Limited seats are available, so act fast!
