Feedback Welcome | A Public Event For Entrepreneurs and Community


This week at Feedback Welcome we have Adriana and Louie Nieman with “A Play Cafe”

“We're looking to open a Play Cafe for kids to explore in a comfortable, clean, and calm environment. We're envisioning a cute coffee shop meets the Magic House. Our play cafe will allow children under 8 years old to explore educational stations, play pretend in a variety of settings, and enjoy the minimally stimulating atmosphere.

Parents can explore the coffee and lattes while seated still watching their children. Healthy, light snacks will be available.

Several private event rooms can host birthday parties and kid friendly adult meetings.

Programming will be offered during the day and evening, this will allow guests to enjoy organized activities like music”

Our presenters are looking for an opportunity to brainstorm their idea, receive feedback on the concept, and connections for next steps.

What do you do when you have a great idea but aren’t sure if it’s really a business?  What about if you have a business that’s up and running but you’re hitting roadblocks you just don’t have the connections or answers for?

Well, Feedback Welcome is probably the event just for you! Our community loves a startup and a good brainstorming session. This is the perfect opportunity for you to come, share your idea, and leave with the answers and connections you need to keep going. 

So, what does this look like?

  • You’ll give a short presentation on your great idea or business focused on the answers you’re looking for and/or the connections you need

  • Our community will listen and offer you feedback, answers, and networking connections to get you moving

  • To keep you going you’ll get a 1-hour, one-on-one follow up session at a later date to keep you accountable and guide you to your next action step

Sound good? We thought so. Apply to present here!
