“Creating a productive and supportive network for entrepreneurs is the heart of The Meeting Place’s mission. Last year, two of our competitors were invited to attend the CoBuilders Accelerator and were declared “investor ready” upon completion. Two other companies have expanded since the competition and are doing extremely well!” – Geneva Dummer, Founder of The Meeting Place

This year, we will continue the educational experience for anyone who wants to learn more about the Pitch Process through Connect Gulf Coast- a hybrid platform where entrepreneurs can learn more about what investors are looking for and how to attract them as well as practice their presentations and try new things.


The Meeting Place is a business incubator and shared office facility with locations in Biloxi and Gulfport, MS offering cost effective office solutions for business owners since 2016.
