This group is about Engineers that are self employed entrepreneurs or work as Independent Consultants.
Many Engineers who work for large corporations are in the company of other like minded engineers within their organistaion as colleagues. Many of their needs are taken care of by the corporation. Many of their issues are discussed and resolved right in the next cubicle. But small engineering Entrepreneurs, or independent Consultatnts sometimes find it difficult to network with like minded people in similar situation.
This group is about bringing such small engineering firms, entrepreneurs, and independent engineering consultants together to network and discuss common issues.
Though you are likely to be an Engineer to join this group but there is no such restriction. Even if you are not an Engineer but has an interest in discussing topics related to engineers, engineering consulting, engineering entrepreneurship etc., with other independent engineering entrepreneurs, consultants and self-employed engineers, by all means, join our networking group and enjoy the company.
For example, if you are an insurance sales agent who just sales home, auto or term life insurance to the general public, then this may not be the most useful group for you. There are many other groups and places where the members of this group can find such help. On the other hand, if you are an insurance sales agent who sales professional liability insurance, specially packaged for various types of engineering professional work, then we would love you to join our group and help our members. Hence, the members we are looking for are those who, whether they are engineers or not, have an interest in things that are for the advancement of engineering and engineering entrepreneurship related activities.
We plan to meet regularly to discuss issues common to self-employed and entrepreneural Engineers. If you like to showcase your engineering consulting activities, your organisation, you like to speak at an event or can reccomend a speaker, we would love to hear from you.
