Business & Entrepreneur Grade-A Networking Mixer (Prepaid Tkts Sold Out)

NOTE: Prepaid Tickets Have Sold Out. There is still space available at the event. We look forward to seeing you tonight. Cheers, ilana

This Ain't Your Mama's Business Mixer 

Join NYCBNG members for our monthly Networking Opportunity.

Each month we work together to build and strengthen each others' businesses and see how we can help other attendees. This builds social capital among the members of our local small business community.

At our award-winning events you'll enjoy meeting a high caliber of individuals and company attendees. Our members include business professionals & executives, business owners, entrepreneurs and startups from a diverse range of industries. We invite you to leverage these relationships to enhance the value of our events and your business.

Network with members and interact with our sponsor companies who will showcase their business-related products and services.

We look forward to seeing you at this event!

COST: $10 prepaid (100 available) or $20 cash/door.

Please Note: There seems to be some confusion about the difference between RSVPing for an event or Prepaying for an event. RSVPing for the event does not guarantee you $10 entry to the event. The discounted prepaid price is for members who prepay for their tickets before event. To ensure you can attend the event for $10 you must prepay online before noon on the day of the event or before all prepaid tickets are sold out. We usually post the number of prepaid tickets left at the top of the event page so members can see how many prepaid tickets are left. Hope that clarifies things for members.

    Hi all,
    Anyone who needs administrative, organizational and project work, please contact me. I organize small businesses, home offices, play and personal spaces. I help to downsize, de-clutter, and create customized systems that make your life easier and more productive. I work "hands-on" and provide tips and strategies for maintenance. After an initial assessment, we select a small project that can be completed in our first session. I believe it is important to see success.
