Innovators and entrepreneurs network at IQ Brew
Richardson’s new Innovation Quarter, aka Richardson IQ, is quickly gathering a following of entrepreneurs, small business owners and innovators. You don't have to be located in the Richardson IQ to participate in the group.
One way to stay in the know is an informative networking program called the IQ Brew.
The education and networking event featuring presentations from entrepreneurs, small businesses, and subject-matter experts meets at 9 a.m. every other Thursday.
Monica Scott, co-founder and president of Logotology, a Richardson IQ business and chamber member, will speak April 8. After decades of experience in the telecommunications and management consulting industry, Monica set out with her sister to start their own decorated apparel and promotional marketing business. After 15 years, they have cultivated a treasured client base with a deep and wide portfolio of offerings to help anyone market their business or organization. The most important marker for them though, is that they continue to contribute to the community in which they are deeply rooted.
Monica earned both a B.S. in Finance and Economics and an MBA from the University of Texas at Dallas. When she is not spending time with her family, she serves on the Boards of several community organizations including Richardson Chamber of Commerce, The Network of Community Ministries, Richardson East Rotary, Richardson Symphony Orchestra and the Richardson ISD Foundation and her Canyon Creek Homeowners Association.
