Innovate Mississippi announces that the next Discovery Luncheon, which is a community-based event that spotlights Mississippi’s rich entrepreneurial culture, will be held Tuesday at the Powerhouse from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Organized by Innovate Mississippi, this first Oxford Discovery Luncheon is presented in partnership with FNC and the Oxford-Lafayette County Economic Development Foundation.

“We’re excited to bring the Discovery Luncheon series to Oxford,” said Tony Jeff, president and CEO of Innovate Mississippi. “This event’s proven format helps people discover the remarkable innovation and entrepreneurial activity taking place in their own community – and all in a fun, educational environment designed to encourage networking. Innovate Mississippi holds Startup Weekends, Mississippi Angel Investor Network meetings and various other events in Oxford and at Ole Miss throughout the year, and we are happy to now expand into the area with this popular event.”
