We hope to collaborate with other web and technology social entrepreneurs who are familiar with word press or the Successchefmeetup.com model. Let's plan social entrepreneurial projects you could be excited about....beginning with helping to co-create memorable moments together each month to build trust and strengthen the community friendship spirit! Support Mayor Vincent Gray's vision for One City with community action!

NOTE: We plan to start with conversations over lunch (self-pay) at dining tables, then proceed with a round of introductions and speed 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. Paid garage parking at same address or free parking on street on Sundays if you can find it.

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 joint ventures and new clients began through volunteering together.  All attendees will have the opportunity to introduce yourself and practice your short "elevator pitch" with the entire group! We look forward to learning about you and  exchanging ideas with you!
