The first Entrepreneur Night event was held in in September 2011, consisting mostly of clients and friends of the founders of Office Divvy ™ –a Palm Coast based Private Incubator and Growth Accelerator. Nearly 50 people attended the first event, multiple folks volunteered to keep it going as a monthly event as a grassroots effort for and by Entrepreneurs.


An Entrepreneur is a person who organizes, manages, and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise. The word originates from old French, from the verb Entreprendre which means to undertake.

A Cool Gathering of Brave Entrepreneurs

Kudos to the amazing people who braved one of the coldest nights of the year for November’s Entrepreneur Night at Tortugas in Flagler Beach, Florida.

The last Tuesday of the month always sets the stage for the area’s premier business event. This month, frigid temperatures of 40 degrees (and dropping fast!) threatened to affect an otherwise-popular night.

Instead, event organizer Ky Ekinci was extremely pleased with an attendance of over 100 people.

“We always love when events shatter our expectations,” Ekinci said. “You know it is a dedicated group of entrepreneurs when they come out in this kind of weather. It’s truly worth it to make connections that will help grow their business and the overall business community.”

“It really separates the serious entrepreneurs from the people who are just messing around,” added Ramon Peralta of Peralta Design, who attended all the way from his home base Connecticut.

Tortugas—always a beautiful venue—helped the entrepreneurs deal with the cold with their beloved fire pits and bracing beverages.

DJ Vern of Pyramid Disc Jockeys played some lively music to get the crowd heated up and the Office Divvy crew pitched in by running the hospitality table with their typically warm hospitality.
