Entrepreneur Space 3rd Anniversary

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Come join us for the third anniversary of QEDC's Entrepreneur Space. Celebrate the achievements of our clients and all the hard work of the staff.

And, in keeping with the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the 1939 and the 50th anniversary of the 1964 World's Fair we have chosen to use the occasion as the "theme." Both Worlds Fairs were significant in introducing new foods to the United States – but probably none as evocative as the "Belgium Waffle" in 1964. In fact, Mariepaule Vermersch – the daughter of the originator will be on hand to help us at the celebration. Invitations will be emailed shortly.

As part of the festivities Entrepreneur Space staff will make waffles with the requisite powdered sugar, whipped cream and strawberries and give out to guests. Free.
