Thompson Hine’s Early Stage & Emerging Companies practice and Skipping Stone LLC are pleased to host the first of our Entrepreneurship Series, The Playbook, an interactive panel presentation and networking event focused on connecting the innovation community in Metro Atlanta with the resources needed for success.

Participants will learn from a panel of experts, including venture capital and private equity investors and successful entrepreneurs, about effective ways to raise capital and launch products and services.
