StartUp Night

February 22, 2023  6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Middlesex StartUp Night

At the Middlesex StartUp Nights, the community will have the opportunity to hear pitches from early-stage startups where they will share their business ideas, mission, markets, customers, and business challenges.

Following the pitches, audience members will get a chance to meet with the startups in a casual, small group setting to ask questions, share feedback, make connections, and offer support… all to help our startups move their ventures to the next stage.

Join us for networking and the opportunity to meet startups and your fellow business owners from the Middlesex region – all while learning more about our local entrepreneurial ecosystem.  It’s a great way to support our founders and encourage the next generation of Middlesex County businesses!

The Mix

Alexandra Zanardi

After years of never being able to find that right space for networking and educational events, and seeing colleagues struggle to settle down in the right location, Alexandra Zanardi decided to stop looking and start making… The Mix is a “purposefully undefined” collaboration space in downtown Niantic where creative, beauty, and wellness professionals have space to meet with clients, host workshops, and exhibit their work.  In addition to office and workspace, The Mix engages the larger community with events and networking opportunities to encourage connections, ideas, and businesses to grow.
