Synchronicity: Entrepreneurial Pursuits. A story teller event.

May 31, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Pushing the boundaries of storytelling and the intergenerational movement, Synchronicity brings together 5 individuals from different generations to tell their story on their struggles in the entrepreneurial pursuit. A night of rich and engaging stories with audience interaction to further the conversation.

The Intergenerational movement exemplifies that whether young or old, we all have something to learn from one another. In other’s stories we experience commonalities that can help us better understand our own story.

Join us May 31st for our first Synchronicity. A live recorded podcast with audience interaction.

A split of our ticket proceeds will go to support Alzheimer’s Association Connecticut Chapter, we thank you in advance for your support.
