Toast Of The Town 2016 says
Enjoy a fabulous strolling dinner, signature cocktails and musical entertainment. Meet some of our stand-out entrepreneurs in the Marketplace—yes, you can shop!—and win prizes in the Tip Jar Raffle. Snap a photo with friends and grab a gift bag, too. It’s the most fun you’ll have networking. Ever.

What’s new on tap this year? The Salute Awards! Our Salute Committee will shine a spotlight on a few rock stars in our entrepreneurial ecosystem: an Entrepreneur of the Year, a Small Business Champion, and two up-and-comers from TechTown’s Labs and Blocks programs.
