Hello Adrienne,

I take great interest in what MeetUp is trying to achieve and would also have been keen to join. Unfortunately, i cannot attend any morning meetings as I start work at 7am.

Hi John,

I appreciate your note and all your updates. I have been really interested in coming to the Tuesday morning coffee but unfortunately I have to be at work. I work on Bahnhofstrasse so I���m actually quite close. I���m also very interested in starting an online business but have no idea how, especially I know there would be many legal procedures to complete, on top of details of my own business. What are the business areas of the participating entrepreneurs in the group? Does everyone already have his business set up here in Switzerland?

I���m a Canadian currently living in Zurich as we just moved from Paris, France 10 months ago.
For now I can only count on email communications until I can attend one of your meet-ups. Thanks so much for running this group. There are people like me who hasn���t been able to attend but very much appreciate a group of passionate people like that.

Thanks kindly, keep in touch
Adrienne Breeze

Subject: [entrepreneur-200] Tuesday Morning Meetup


In response to a queastion about our annoucment about the formation of an entreprenuers association I have written the following

I guess I had better fill you in so that you can better understand.
A number of us have been meeting every Tuesday morning for about a year now. We as a group are a part of the Entrepreneurs meet-up group and plan to remain that way.
I was selfish when I started this group. I was looking for a group of people   that I could meet with regularly who had experienced the same trials and tribulations of being an entrepreneur. Being an entrepreneur can be a lonely journey at times. The evening drinks/dinners/networking events and the internet groups could not offer what I needed most which is human contact in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere.
Our meetings are informal with a very simple format. Short introductions in the beginning followed by individual discussions. Sometimes our introductions are followed by discussions of topics of interest at  the time.
In addition, we are hoping that this association will provide some of the services that the chambers of commerce provide but at an affordable cost of around 25 francs per year. Many entrepreneurs starting out can not afford the steep fees that are often asked for.
As indicated by the name, we are planning that it will be international. Where there can be chapters in other cities around the world. So in regard to your offer to us being a sub group of your group, it could be the other way around.
We have some very dedicated and committed members. They need to be,  to be coming to the meeting at 8 am in the morning. We actually have had members come from outside of the Zurich area so you can imagine what time they are up in the morning and the commitment. This is what being an entrepreneur is all about. It can be tough, hard and even discouraging at times. Meeting with others who experience the same is what is needed. It has been an honor to be a part of this group and I have developed some very good relationships as a result.
These are tough times and many people sometimes have no other alternative but to start up something on their own. These are tough times for entrepreneurs and we need to support ourselves in our entrepreneurial journeys.

You are welcome to come along to a meeting any time
