For creative professionals in the Denver area, Creative Connections is your networking alternative. Our purpose? To foster working relationships among local creative pros. Join us the 1st Friday of the month from 9-10:30 a.m (Holidays excluded. Please check schedule). You’ll learn from in-the-know industry speakers, get the scoop on other local creative businesses and connect with other talented professionals with skills that complement your own. No-pressure networking. Creative Connections members play well together. So there are no rules limiting the number of graphic designers, writers, photographers—or lion tamers, for that matter—who can join. First time free then just $5 after. No mandatory attendance. We’re not a leads group—although members do collaborate on a variety of creative projects. Creative Connections’ only rule, really, is that you work as a creative professional. Defining creative: Anyone who is actively & directly involved in the following industries / fields and providing these services to others or in need of these services. Print - TV – Radio - Internet - Video – Photography - Artists (All forms) – Writers - Marketing, Advertising & Public Relations. Others that are not listed upon approval of the Creative Connections Management team.

    Hard to believe this meeting was in April!! I finally launched my kickstarter project today. I was interested in crowdfunding before attending, but the meet-up certainly helped. Thanks CCM for hosting this.

    Thank you for having me yesterday. I hope you are informed and possibly inspired to take the next step with your business and creative projects. For those who wanted to connect further on how to use crowdfunding, contact me at [masked] or on Facebook: www.facebook.com/CrowdfundingStrategy. My business focus is advising and setting up small businesses and individuals to get funded. Great meeting everyone! Best,
    Leigh

    Very Awesome. Great People, Great Topic, Great information...only thing missing was a huge carafe of coffee delivered to me every 15 minutes (because I love coffee, NOT because I needed to stay awake for the great topic)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
