Sep 8, 2021

Common Grounds is back!

After a year of virtual everything, we’re excited to relaunch our weekly coffee event on Wednesday, August 4, 2021 and every Wednesday (well…almost every Wednesday)  morning after! Join us each week at this causal coffee event focused on bringing innovative and interesting people (a.k.a you) together for a superb cup of local coffee and a 5-minute story about great innovation, entrepreneurship, or unique projects and events happening in the Evansville region.

Our goal is for you to leave Common Grounds excited by the interesting people you just met, anxious to repeat the community story you just heard and maybe even inspired to get involved or do more with your talents in the community. View our speaker schedule, here.
