As we are moving into the third week of full operation at the Leslie eLab, I want to highlight some of the great resources we have available for all of you, as well as some of our outstanding events.
We know that starting a startup is a messy process, and we want to help you navigate this territory in any way we can. For example, we have assembled a well selected reference library of landmark startup and entrepreneurship books, and we encourage you to consult it frequently. We also have two computer workstations loaded with graphic design, 3d modeling, and prototyping software - and if you have any other software needs, we can get that for you, too.
And if you haven’t had a chance to check out the Leslie eLab yet, make sure to stop by for a quick tour, get inspired by the space and the startup teams working here, learn about different aspects of entrepreneurship, and grab a cup of coffee on us.
See you all there,
