Happy Labor Day! It may be a short week but we’re not short on quality events for Startup Founders! I’ll keep my ramblings short so you’ll have more time to read about all the cool things going on below!

But first, some big news! Last week, I/O Labs shared a sneak peek of their new downtown coworking space via Facebook Live. We’re excited that they will be celebrating their grand opening soon! Check out the Facebook Live tour!

This Week’s Best Bets

Tomorrow (Tuesday), StartupSac is welcoming in Oktoberfest a little early with Happy Hour at Der Biergarten in Midtown. This is a free no host event. Break out the lederhosen and dirndls and get ready for fall!

Head over to Hacker Lab Wednesday evening for the Fall 2017 Startup Hustle Kickoff. This informational meetup will answer any and all questions you have about their Entrepreneurship Bootcamp.

Also on Wednesday evening, Founder Institute is putting the spotlight on Female Founders. Top female entrepreneurs will share their ‘why’, their stories, challenges, successes, tips and answer your burning questions about entrepreneurship!

Thursday, join Eric Knopf, cofounder of Webconnex, during your lunch hour (at your desk, on your sofa) for a dynamite webinar, “Unfair Advantage: Creating Products With An Edge Over The Competition.” The webinar is brought to you by Hacker Lab’s Startup Hustle. It’s free to “attend” but you must sign up to get the link. For those of you who don’t know Eric, he’s a local founder with lots of great advice to share!
