This year the Asheville Chamber and Economic Development Coalition are combining our annual meetings to present the year's largest corporate event and a great evening of celebration and inspiration on June 30th at The Omni Grove Park Inn.
The event (presented by SunTrust) will feature tech entrepreneur Josh Linkner, a nationally acclaimed speaker and NY Times bestselling author. Josh - who started his career as a jazz guitarist - personifies creativity, entrepreneurship and disruptive innovation. He has been the founder and CEO of four tech companies, which sold for a combined value of over $200 million.

He is also the Founding Partner of Detroit Venture Partners, investing in and mentoring over 100 startups.
Josh has twice been named the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year and is a President Barack Obama Champion of Change award recipient.
