Speakers reflected wide variety of Chamber member businesses
Broad diversity among the Montcross Area Chamber member businesses was on full display when the Business Buzz Breakfast program on Sept. 22, 2017, was "Pitch Your Business." Nineteen members presented 90-second pitches describing their business in rapid succession. CaroMont Health is the sponsor of Business Buzz.
Presentations by two of the Chamber's newest members were given by a representative of Open Broadband, a technology firm bringing super-fast gigabit internet service to Gaston County, and also by Anchored Soul, which encourages customers to get out on the lake on a paddle board and also their lines of casual fashion and jewelry.
Business Buzz Breakfasts are held several times each year at the Kimbrell Campus of Gaston College in Belmont. Speakers and others who came out to learn about their fellow Chamber members enjoyed breakfast from Stanton Enterprise/McDonalds.
