As a rising sales executive, OPEN Members provided me with advice and mentor-ship. As a non-profit leader, OPEN Members provided connections and financial support. As an entrepreneur my business partner and I met through OPEN, and OPEN Members connected to us as clients, advisers, investors, and new friends. Join our network and build your connections and relationships into this dynamic community of ambitious and successful business leaders, business owners, professionals and rising stars. We look forward to your participation!
