Chapters Forming Now!
LoCo Think Tank Builders chapters have been developed to provide a safe place for growth and learning for the owners of smaller but high-potential small businesses in our communities. Generally, Builders chapter members will have five or fewer employees and less than $500,000 in gross revenues.  

The structure of our Builders chapters will be similar to that of the Thinkers chapters, with four hour meetings monthly along with sessions between meetings. The key difference is that Builders chapter facilitators will not be retired small business owners, but instead are members of our LoCo Thinkers and LoCo Next Level chapters.  Builders chapters will meet in cohorts between monthly full-chapter meetings, with a focus on business bootcamp-type topics.  

Our initial LoCo Facilitators for the Builders chapters will be Moses Horner of Horner Painting, and Dave Hudson of Recycled Cycles. Both are longtime members of our Original Thinkers chapter, and both are experienced facilitators with a passion for business as a force for good.  

Builders chapters will be formed in partnership with a non-profit organization or co-working space. The host partner will receive a discounted membership in the chapter to accelerate their own business learning. 

We're working out all of the details right now and will announce connection events where you can meet Dave and Moses in the near future.  Apply for a Builders chapter at the bottom of this page to make sure you're on the short list for contact about those events once they're scheduled.
