A colleague invited me to a meeting and then I attended a couple of more meetings to get an idea of how the meetings ran and what the organization was all about. It peeked my interest and I liked the fact that there was this forum that was willing to help out new and up and coming entrepreneurs from both a financial and an experience aspect.
