Social Entrepreneurs, Changemakers, Others FREE Networking in DC! Monthly Meetup

Social entrepreneurs, changemakers, consultants, investors, community builders and others interested in personal, business, spiritual and community advancement are coming together, learning together and succeeding together! EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED!

Share with each other what you are up to, what you are looking for, what you can provide, your concerns, objectives and brilliant insights. Join members of various Meetup groups in our Network to create massive value for attendees! Meet high quality, dynamic and successful social  entrepreneurs, investors, and community builders who attend this community networking event regularly. Help build community spirit and connect with potential prospects and allies for mutual advancement in the community!

NOTE: We plan to start with conversations over lunch (self-pay) at dining tables, then proceed with a round of introductions and focus group networking after lunch at Burma Restaurant, 740 6th St. NW, 2nd Floor, Wash. DC, one block from Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro station, red, yellow, green lines on Metro. Follow Chinatown exit.

Please show your support by offering to donate $2 (or whatever you wish) to cover part of the expenses and for ABC charity fund. Please volunteer to help continue these events. It is a great way to have fun working together and getting to know each other through the process. Many new opportunities and new relationships began through volunteering together.  All attendees will have the opportunity to introduce yourself and practice your short "elevator pitch" with the entire group!

    Great meeting! Perhaps there could be a 30-40 second time limit on introductions. We would get to networking faster.

    Hi everyone! I am working again this Sunday but would LOVE to collaborate with many of you. I'm looking for several people who would like to donate a portion of their space for group events from 5-20 people. I would love to create more exposure for your business and give back to the community. Please message me for more details on how we can network and help each other. =)
