Fast Start: Building businesses

The final #Work4Roc event will be held at The Hive@155 St. Paul St. May 26 from 6 to 9 p.m.

#Work4Roc is a collaboration between Rochester Young Professionals and developers in Rochester who are behind more than $650 million in investment underway downtown. This is a great way for YPs to meet with the developers.

Noah Morgenstern’s family is transforming the St. Paul Quarter with Hive Village. This four-block downtown area is undergoing big changes. Tours of loft apartments in the Hive@155, opening in June, will be offered. These two landmarked buildings have 54 studios ranging from 575 to 980 square feet.

Tapas 177, a popular mainstay in the Quarter for nearly 20 years, and Split Batch Brewing will offer tastings. r-y-p.org

Mallory Blair, a Forbes 30 Under 30 recipient and CEO of Small Girls PR, a boutique firm in New York City, will be in Rochester May 19 to talk about how she and her partner built their business.

Her talk is part of the biz.Exchange professional development series through the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce and WXXI Public Broadcasting.

Blair will share tips on how to get people and the news media talking about your business—tricks she and partner Bianca Caampued used to build their multimillion-dollar company.

There will be a cash bar and snacks. The event runs from 5 to 7 p.m. at WXXI’s studios on State Street. my.greaterrochesterchamber.com
