2018 was our first year in business here at Project 3810. When we set out with our plans at the beginning of 2018, while we knew what we wanted to accomplish, we weren’t exactly sure what that might look like once we did.
Our first order of business was to connect with like-minded companies and organizations to see what already existed in our OK small business ecosystem.
As a result we learned about Startup Grind OKC and attended some of their fireside chats. We liked the format and liked their values and decided theirs was a worthwhile association we could support, and thus we could both grow stronger.
Project 3810 became a sponsor in December 2018 and are helping this volunteer organization with promotions, donations and much needed man-hours. We are excited to help this format grow. The fireside chat format is unique in that it gives up close and personal access to busy, successful, local founders. Often we are lucky to hear one of them speak to a huge crowd of folks, but the fireside chat formats allows attendees to actually meet him or her and perhaps, just perhaps, form a kinship where a lasting relationship happens as a result. We believe new and early stage startups benefit greatly from being mentored and the Startup Grind model is a vehicle to allow those relationships a chance to materialize.
