Buenas Tardes Luncheon - January 2013

The +The Greater Mission Chamber of Commerce held its quarterly Buenas Tardes Luncheon today at the Club at Cimarron. The luncheon featured guest speaker Alex Meade, CEO of the Mission Economic Development Corporation, and the announcement of the businesses of the month for the most recent quarter.

The topic of Mr. Meade's presentation was an overview of what Ruby Red Ventures is, and why they are giving away $100,000 in venture capital this year. He explained what venture capitalists are and how they help entrepreneurs succeed.

The three businesses of the month for the most recent quarter were Waterford Gardens, a local assisted living community; Mission CISD, our local school district; and The Progress Times, our local newspaper.

In addition, the Chamber held their traditional drawing for +Matt Z. Ruszczak's  Money, which was at $1,600. The winner was not present at the Buenas Tardes Luncheon, so the money rolls into the next luncheon with an additional $50 added in to the prize.
