Here’s the schedule of events:
The annual Loft Walk kicks off the three-day event on Sept. 17. During a guided tour through some of Charleston’s newly renovated and re-imagined lofts,
guests will see firsthand why more and more people are choosing downtown living.
Loft Walk starts at Adelphia Sports Bar at 218 Capitol Street. From there, guests can walk or ride a trolley to the various properties.
The event is free to attend, but RSVP is required.
You can RSVP for the event by clicking HERE.
All guests, realtors, property managers and property owners are invited to attend the reception at Adelphia for free appetizers and discounted drinks after the walk.
Loft Walk is sponsored by Selling West Virginia.
Charleston Area Alliance
1116 Smith Street
Check out Charleston’s new business stars and vote on Sept. 18. For burgeoning entrepreneurs, cash capital is the lifeblood of their business. Now with “Thrive,” the Charleston Area Alliance’s crowdfunding initiative, startups have a chance to receive an infusion of cash through fresh and innovative means.
Earlier this month, a blind panel selected four Kanawha Valley-based entrepreneurs with 30 or fewer employees out of a pool of applicants. These entrepreneurs each produced pitch videos to promote their business and need for crowd funds.
On Sept. 18, an event will be held at the Charleston Area Alliance starting at 5:30 p.m. To attend and participate in the event, community members will pay $20 a ticket ($21 if you register online). In return, they will get to partake in beverages and food, but more importantly, they get to vote for the entrepreneur that they want to support.
At the end of the night, the entrepreneur with the most votes will receive $20 times the number of attendees as cash capital to invest in their business.
Project partners include Mountaineer Capital, Terrell Ellis & Associates, WV Jobs Investment Trust Board, BB&T and Industrial Bolting.
You cannot vote for a winner, unless you attend the event. To sign up and attend the event, please click HERE.
Tickets will also available at the door and cash is preferable. In the meantime, please check out the pitch videos below and cast your vote for a winner on Sept. 18.
