Community Table Babson, Boston, and New york

Community Table is a hub for eater-entrepreneurs to connect, share ideas, and support each other's work. Our design is always one table, one conversation, in-person participation only with discussion entirely driven by attendees. Always come when you can, bring your lunch or a snack if you wish.
