Don't Panic, Let's Talk

A virtual event for founders, business leaders and entrepreneurs in this time of COVID-19.


Join NY Tech Alliance and Grasshopper Bank as we provide a safe-space to share your biggest concerns and talk through some of your deepest issues during this time of crisis.

Come with questions, best practices, or just voice your worries and concerns. This virtual event will be led by a qualified business coach guiding the group through an open conversation about what we may be encountering.

Let’s come together, connect, share, and learn from each other. Most of all, don't panic and talk.

This event will be limited to 50 people. Be sure to sign up fast!


The conversation will be facilitated by Micah Baldwin.
