The Middlesex Information eXchange (MIX) groups include representatives from the following industries:
- Small Owner Managed Services
- Non-profit Agencies
Each MIX group is facilitated by a Chair who will facilitate the meetings and create the necessary contacts with third party speakers who will provide beneficial information to the participants. The goal is for each business to focus on the adjustments necessary during COVID-19 for growth and resilience.
MIX is not a professional advice forum- rather, it is a peer to peer learning group. Groups may at times choose to bring in professionals to give advice but the main goal is to connect like business owners who can learn from each other and share ideas!
