Green Energy Options

The Hannah Grimes Center, The Keene Sentinel and Machina Arts are once again combining their energies to present CONNECT, our premier networking event of the year on Tuesday, November 7th from 5:30pm-7:30pm! Over 400 people attended last year’s CONNECT event, we expect tickets to sell out. Get your tickets early, this is an event you do not want to miss!!

The event includes GREAT music, DELICIOUS local food, drinks and more!!

Get a sneak peak of Green Energy Option’s NEW retail building on 37 Roxbury Street, our event venue, slated to open in 2018.

This year’s keynote speaker will be Greg Tehven (or Greg from Fargo).

Machina Arts, which specializes in melding art, lighting, and mood, is working with several groups to display downtown ideas generated at a Hannah Grimes “Idea Jam”. Ideas range from increasing public art, building Keene as the solar capitol of NH, encouraging more walking, Downtown Keene as a conference center, and more sidewalk and pedestrian space on Main Street.

Join HGC as we recognize our annual Entrepreneur of the Year, an individual whose entrepreneurial endeavors have contributed to a thriving local economy and vibrant community.

What is the Main Street that you want? Leave inspired by new ideas that can lead to exciting innovation! Along with new ideas, attendees will leave the event with a special publication of The Business Journal of Greater Keene, Brattleboro and Peterborough, which will include stories on downtown successes both locally and around New England along with obstacles that need to be overcome to achieve that success.
