La Cocina, a kitchen incubator in San Francisco that serves low-income entrepreneurs, is mission driven. Opened in 2005 in the city’s Mission District, La Cocina offers affordable commercial kitchen space to entrepreneurs with ideas but few financial or business resources.
Three years ago, Ann Lansinger, executive director of Baltimore’s Emerging Technology Centers, wanted to offer a fun event to encourage clients from ETC’s two facilities to interact. A colleague who often planned social events suggested an indoor nine-hole miniature golf tournament as a way to bring representatives of different companies together.
