Our Credo
Make yourself at home
Be welcoming and friendly… and help keep the place tidy.
Be inclusive
The community thrives because we welcome participants without regard to color, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, or disability.
Be interested
Learn about other guests’ projects, explore new perspectives, consider the absurd. Ask yourself how can I help?
Connect responsibly
We are not a bar, this is not a happy hour. If you think it is, you are in the wrong place.
No hard sales!
Innovation is about top level thinking, not bottom line outcomes. Focus on building relationships that will last.
Have fun!
Challenge yourself to think outsides of your norms and grow. Be willing to provide constructive feedback and share your ideas.
