February Genève Entrepreneur Meetup

Dear all,

The second meet-up of 2013 will take place on Wednesday the 20th of February (please note the unusual day). We will start at about 18:00, in the 7 arts bar of Geneva.

This meet-up is open to anyone who is interested in entrepreneurship,
involved in a small business, venture capital or business development,
or would like to get involved in the future.

The meet-up will let you to talk about your business ideas, ask
questions, establish a network, get to know people at the group or
simply just to have a beer in a friendly atmosphere.

We encourage people to pitch their idea or business. These 4 minute
pitches are the perfect opportunity to present your business and/or
idea. At the end of every pitch there is time for some Q&A. People who
are interested in pitching please write me a message.
Another heads-up: on Thursday the 21st of March we are planning to organize a special event that will focus on how to set up a business in Geneva, with some experts in the field giving a presentation. More information will follow soon, but you can already put the date in your agenda!

    It would be nice to have some page with a list of enterpreneurs, contact details, short description of their work. Could not visit this time, but very curious what people do.

      Website specific to this is a great idea. In a meantime, how about using a "sponsor" section right here on this meetup. It's not used at all and can be easily dedicated to entrepreneurs who want to post their info/offer ;-)

    Good meeting. Sad there are not many female entrepreneurs. Would like to hear from any digital marketing specialists as I need advice for my website: Finestfinds.ch

    I am sorry for the last minute cancellation. I can't make it today due to a problem with my goods at the customs taking up all my time. I am looking forward to the next one. Wish you a productive meeting today.

    Good evening everyone. Today was my first time attending the Genève Entrepreneur Meetup Group meetings, and sincerely, it was just great. I was lucky to meet and talk with 7-8 motivated entrepreneurs, hear others introduce themselves, and learn what Pitching was all about, and finally listen and learn from a great talk from Mark. It was a real pleasure to hear and see many active people, entrepreneurs, business owners from so many horizons. A gift in itself to keep the high spirits and go counter-current by not letting morosity and general news put people down. Thank you, and I really look forward to the next meetup(s). :)

    Hello Fellow entrepreneurs! This Tuesday I'm organising TEDx Plainpalais (www.tedxplainpalais.com). We will be posting the videos of the talk on the same platform so stay tuned.

    On the stage of the event we will have TIM CLARK, author of Business Model You, the one page method to re-invent your career.

    Tim Clark work is perfect for any person which is defining what to do in the personal and professional life. Based on the BUSINESS MODEL GENERATION book which Tim has co-written, the adaptation to the personal business model is a powerful one to really define how to achieve success. For those of you interested, Tim Clark will be hosting a Workshop SATURDAY 23rd in GENEVA.

    Few Tickets left: http://businessmodelyou_geneva.eventbrite.com

    In case you come, let me know as I'm the organiser of the Workshop too.

    Have a great weekend!
