Pardon the Innovation

May 1, 2019, 5:30 PM7:30 PM


What does a serial entrepreneur, a rock guitarist legend, Beverly Hills and a venture capital backed high-tech company all have in common? Come hear Derek Myska discuss how he took an idea for a business from his dorm room all the way to the hallowed halls of the high-tech industry and find out!

Join us in the Spann Commons Summit Room for the 2nd Annual Pardon the Innovation event at Thomas College. Both KV Connect and Cynergy will be here to network and co-host speaker Derek Myska, who will tell a story that must be heard to be believed! United Way of Mid-Maine Rising Leaders will also be here so be sure to speak to one of their members and learn more about what they do!

This event is free and open to the public, please register if you plan to attend so we can plan accordingly. There will be a cash bar and light refreshments served.
