"Beth, 

While it was AWESOME that we won, it was even better to see how many really care about Erie and what happens to its future.  I spoke to sooooo many people that share the same mindset.  Its so refreshing to see these kind of like minded individuals compared to the "older" generation that let jealousy and cliques rule the day.  We tried to keep our company quiet as some of what I have seen in the past permeated in my mind.

You, the IC and that event last night have renewed my faith in the Erie community.  Thank you so much for an amazing evening...if you closed your eyes for 3 seconds you would of thought you were in NYC or at an event in Chicago.

Thank you for everything that you and your team are doing and I look forward to helping the IC in any way I can in the future to help more Erie businesses not only start but thrive." - 
Tom Laird CEO of Expivia Interaction Marketing Group, Inc.
