We are NOT your typical business networking or professional development organization.
Some people believe networking events are a place to exchange business cards . We are NOT those people and strongly suggest you consider other business networking or professional networking event options if your sole motivation is to sell to people.
Our definition of networking & development:
An experience where you learn something useful and meet people in a more meaningful way.
We curate our New York business networking events & NYC professional development workshops to be memorable experiences. Our overall approach to business networking events & programs in New York is to bring together entrepreneurs and professionals from all walks of life and expertise in a memorable way. Our philosophy is to maximize your investment in these NYC business networking experiences by creating programs where you engage and interact with people who share similar issues, needs and/or interests with you. We incorporate aspects of travel and mobility (even if we’re not going long distances) into each professional networking event, so that you can bond with others over the conversation and experience, rather than a brief transaction. By fostering a safe environment for our members at our New York business networking events, we help facilitate the natural exchange of ideas, resources and connections.
After all, whom are you more likely to remember: someone you exchanged business cards with over a few minutes in a room, or someone who listened to and helped you over the course of a few hours?
We have three goals for each of our members when they attend one of our business networking events:
- Learn something new about themselves or their business
- Build relationships over shared experiences
- Leave with a different definition (and view) of networking
