Welcome to our meetup! We're a startup community dedicated to connectingaspiring entrepreneurs, professionals, ideas and investors to swap, share and collaborate to develop and co-found new businesses.
Right now in the UK there are over 27 million people with start-up ambitions that fail to move beyond the hope. There's a few reasons why, like not having the technical skills to develop their ideas; having no idea - literally; fearing failure and loss; and not having the money...
The timing doesn't help either - risks are high, and lending by banks or friends and family is tight. So here’s the silver lining...YOU, together with a whole community of aspiring entrepreneurs pitching in and working together.
The aim of this meetup is to connect members – across all industries and professional backgrounds – to collaborate on new business ventures. So if you’ve got a business idea you need help exploring and developing, or industry-expertise you’d like to contribute to a startup opportunity you believe in, here’s a social, dynamic and innovative way to network and connect with what you need! By working together in partnerships, we’re not just bridging a skills-gap, we're also sharing the responsibilities, burdens and costs holding us back vs. going it alone and spending heavily on disconnected third-parties.
Here’s what you can expect:
1/ A range of people – all ages, backgrounds, skill-sets, experience-levels – interested in and passionate about founding new ventures.
2/ A range of events: this won’t just be a traditional bar setup; expect a variety of venues and activities to promote working relationships and to facilitate collaboration.
3/ A great supply of accomplished entrepreneurs and investors. We’ll always make sure you’ll have a handful of entrepreneurs who have been there and done it and can offer guidance, inspiration and feedback. Expect them to change each time and to come from different industries...this group isn’t just for tech start-ups!
Here’s what we need from you:
...You and your friends: spread the word! Everyone should bring a slice of their own network to the table to increase the overall opportunity.
Follow up! We have a free community at www.bizoogo.com where you can broadcast your ideas or skills and develop the relationships you need to see your ambitions through!
We’re excited to see you at our meetups and welcome any feedback and/or suggestions. We hope this is the start of something really exciting and special!
