( Boot Board) This is something that may be more useful with a more diverse mix of entrepreneurs involved, but it might work with an industry-specific group. The basics are that a group of business leaders get together regularly and each time one person presents their busienss case or business problem and the group tries to help. This is a great way for peopel to really get to know each other's business and each other thus providing more valuable insight. If you are interested in this, please contact the Subgroup leadership.
