Local entrepreneurs are getting the chance to connect and network.

The RYP (Rochester Young Professional) eight annual Entrepreneurship Expo is designed for self-starters and small business owners under the age of 40 to discuss their business and mingle with other like-minded individuals in the area.

Those who want to start a business but are apprehensive about taking the leap are also encouraged to attend.

The event takes place on November 15 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at the Sibley Building at NextCorps.
