2016 Was a Banner Year for the SBEC!
It’s truly amazing how fast time has flown by in 2016. It seems only yesterday we had our 2016 Board Strategic Planning back in December 2015. BTW,
Allan Colman did a marvelous job serving as our Retreat Facilitator. However the real fun was in the implementation and execution of our plans.
In the writing our 2016 Accomplishments, it became self-evident that 2016 was the best year ever for the South Bay Entrepreneurial Center. All KPIs (key performance indicators) showed positive growth.
We ended 2016 with 15 Cohorts and every Event resulting in positive branding opportunity with positive net revenues.
In summary, personally my proudest moment was seeing so many people wearing our new SBEC Lapel pin and smiling from ear-to-ear during our signature event, Innovation Matters.
2016 was a banner year for the SBEC and made possible by the collaborative efforts of our entire Board. I close by saying THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to our Board, and more importantly, to our Cohorts and dedicated Mentors for giving Lee Petillon (our Founder) a reason to smile down upon the organization that he started and cared so much for. Lee we share that passion for the SBEC!
RIP, and know that we will never forget you Lee!
