BYOC² stands for “Build Your Own Community” and “Buy Your Own Coffee.” BYOC² is a time for various Grant County professionals to meet, mingle, and converse together.
The vision of BYOC² is to foster connectivity amongst community members, encourage local community investment, provide information on existing local resources, and propel local business startups, expansion, and retention. BYOC² seeks to build as expansive a network as possible, gathering non-profit employees, health care professionals, social workers, university faculty, students, young professionals, local artists, small business owners, school administrators, entrepreneurs etc.—anyone interesting in connecting with their local community. BYOC² is flexible, low-key, expansive, and informal in its nature, thus allowing every individual to take personal ownership of BYOC² and make the space uniquely beneficial to their cause.Members of the Grant County Economic Growth Council, Marion-Grant County Chamber of Commerce, Main St. Marion, Marion Design Co., The Refinery, and many more local organizations will be present during BYOC².
BYOC² occurs the first Wednesday of each month from 7am to 9am @ Abbey Coffee Co. (1500 S Western Ave, Marion, IN 46953)! Grab a co-worker, employee, or a friend and head to Abbey Coffee Co. anytime between 7am to 9am to drink coffee, eat donuts, and meet your community!
