Millwork Conversations is a happy hour chat between Omaha’s creators, innovators, artists, thought leaders and activators. Millwork Conversations will provide an opportunity to learn from people across communities right here in Nebraska and across the country about new ideas and what’s possible – how to push past real and imagined boundaries. Each month will provide an inspiring, memorable experience for attendees through compelling conversations.Join us for December’s conversation with Alapace Founder and CEO, Karen Borchert! Karen Borchert is the founder and CEO of Alpaca. As a public school parent and entrepreneur, Karen wanted a solution to support and invest in teachers that was simple and high impact. Her idea was a simple platform to help parents subscribe to their school. Her background as COO of Flywheel, ROKA, and other technology companies helped her build a platform and a pilot at a few local schools, and Alpaca began. Alpaca now supports 3,000+ teachers each month with packs of supplies and appreciation supported by parents, companies, and nonprofit orgs. The unique model is expanding to school districts across the country in the coming year.
