Happy Holidays - We Feel Privileged


It's time for a small break 

We want you to know...

We are SO PROUD of the community of entrepreneurs who have taken time every week to participate and support other entrepreneurs and small businesses, especially at a time when our businesses have changed so much and have required us to think about our business in innovative ways.  I am so impressed by how much we contribute to each other and this is why I have continued to support this board of directors and the organization--there is always something I can take away from our SPARK Tank meetings. 

If it has been a while for you, our door is ALWAYS open. Bring your challenges, your learning, and help grow both the incubator and community. We know there is so much to learn yet and you have so much to offer. And we have all kinds of wisdom tucked into our archives from other professionals who have offered their expertise this year on Zoom.

If you are a regular, we are so grateful to have you, whenever you can make time, with whatever you contribute. This has been a challenging year for all of us. We know this, and it just adds to our deepest gratitude for your patience, your contribution, your energy, and your brilliance.

If you have something to offer the community, that helps others make gains in their business, learn a new skill, or offers professional guidance, please submit a presentation proposal to the board of directors to support future programming! Let your light shine.

Remember, as Ram Dass said, "We are all just walking each other home." 

As we come to the close of this challenging year, filled with both disappointments and brilliant new skills and gains, we want to remind you that this board sees you! You matter to us, to the City of Dunedin, and to the other participants. Your voice adds to the plethora of wisdom that supports what the City of Dunedin hopes to grow, and what the incubator attempts to nurture in our community. 

Best and Beautiful Wishes this holiday season, and big hopes for a spectacular new year!

With Gratitude, Evelyn Dufner
on behalf of the Board of Directors

What are SPARK Tanks!? 

For entrepreneurs and small business owners, the Dunedin Entrepreneurs' Spark Tank is a great opportunity to 'brain bounce' new ideas, make vital connections, and meet up with like-minded entrepreneurs,  Free and open to the public, join us to... Innovate, Implement and Intensify Your Business!


We have presenters who cover topics vital to small business owners. These are interactive mini-workshops where you be able to apply the concepts, skills, and ideas to your situation with plenty of time for questions.


Much more than networking, at our Challenges Round participants…

  • Share what their business is
  • Share whatever challenges their business may be facing
  • Receive ideas, brainstorming, and options about your challenges from people who have been there 
  • Offer their ideas and options to support others as you’ve been supported 

After either Spark Tank form, there will be time to chat and swapped business cards with folks that you connected with for further support and discussion.

Come join us! You won’t be disappointed!

Sparks don't run on their own, it takes support from the community, time from our volunteer board, and out of pocket expenses to fuel our media and run this group. If it has served you well, provided you perspective, given you leads, or created a sense of collaborative community, then PLEASE consider donating. We are a 501c3 and your donations are tax-deductible!
