We socialize innovation among a tight-knit community of highly driven young professionals

 
 

HISTORY

3210 was born in May of 2015 as a startup discussion breakfast meeting. What began as a single table of friends at Blue Plate Cafe quickly drew 4-6 tables of people. As attendance picked up, we eventually migrated to HudsonAlpha, then HuntsvilleWest, and finally to Randolph School for our startup discussions and speaker series.

Why THE NAME "32/10"?

Pronounced "thirty-two ten," our name is derived from two sources. The first is the address of the Blue Plate venue where we originated: 3210 Governors Drive. The second is the connotation with the liftoff sequence spoken by rocket launch controllers: "3-2-1 lift-off!" (in which we relate some of our members' aspirations to start companies).

Our Mission

Our mission is to socialize entrepreneurship among a millennial demographic such that discussing startups and associated business concepts becomes familiar and comfortable. We're building a tight-knit community of movers and shakers and bringing them together to explore and collaborate on ideas. 

We bring high-caliber young professionals together to discuss entrepreneurial concepts in a social environment.
