The summer Sandbox Accelerator kicked off on June 19.  My highlights were the keynote speakers, the Business Model Canvas breakout session, and the Mentor Mixer.  Wait, that's almost the entire kick-off itinerary!  I must have enjoyed it that much.  

The speakers were alums of the program.  Some of their key points were to know your own goals, build your network, and to rethink any resistance when taking advice.  They were good reminders and great re-energizers for us in the program.
The breakout session got me to thinking about my customer segments versus my key partners.  I was asked to take one segment and worked on it at a time.  This exercise helped me realize that who I thought were my customers weren't really my customers at all.  
The mentors gave feedback and advice that I could use almost right away!
I have to mention that connecting with other entrepreneurs yesterday was one of the most valuable takeaways.  I think my ideas are in good hands because I found the village where I may just thrive.
I look forward to the rest of the program.
