Secular Professionals & Entrepreneurs Networking Group (SPENG)

You are invited to join our monthly meeting of secular San Diego business owners, entrepreneurs, "intrepreneurs," and like-minded professionals. This event is a great opportunity to get to know other like-minded professionals and grow your network. We don’t specifically solicit business – our focus is community building, supporting each other, and making referrals as appropriate. If you are a non-believing entrepreneur, we hope you will join us.

This month we are incredibly excited to hold our meeting at Swoon Dessert Bar in San Diego. This is a small local business and the owner is one of our own and very excited to host us. This will be a mixer as opposed to a sit-down dinner. Swoon has amazing small plates (savory & sweet) as well as coffee, tea, and other lite fare. They don’t have a liquor license yet, but it’s coming soon!


6 – 6:30pm:   Open Networking, ordering food & drinks

6:30 - 7pm:   We’ll each give a brief (90 second) elevator pitch, including:

• Basic information about you and your business

• What you can offer the community

• How the community can support you

7 – 8pm:   Open Networking

The purpose of this event is professional networking, not a discussion of atheist philosophy. Please be prepared to talk about your work, bring business cards, etc. 

This event is cross-posted here: Please feel free to sign up in both places.

    Dear SPENG, do you know how I can find businesses in San Diego? Right now I need someone to install a whole house fan. I am nervous about allowing religious people into my house. After all, if they think I deserve going to hell, what would their business ethics be in dealing with me? Suggestions? Is there a catalogue of businesses?

    Thank you to everyone who attended last night! That was an awesome turn out and you were all fabulous!. I'll be sending out a follow up message soon. If you didn't make it last night and want to be added to our mailing list (managed by me in a google doc - no spam, I promise), please send me your email address.

    Hello All! I'm not a business owner or entrepreneur, but I am looking for part-time work. If anyone is looking for a new employee, then I'd love to get in touch about it! Thank you:)
