CONNECTED Social at COHATCH

COhatch Upper Arlington

“Where do I meet good people?”

This is a common challenge that many business professionals face.

If you are looking to expand your network, but cold-calling, and cold-pitching your products or services isn’t your thing, you’ll love the community that we’ve created!

Come and join us for a warm and engaging evening of networking with the CONNECTED Networking Group!

We host this Social event every last Tuesday of the month, from 6pm to 8pm, at one of the unique COHATCH locations around the city!

This is a great way to get together and meet local business owners, sales professionals, entrepreneurs, and community leaders in a fun and comfortable environment!

We make it easy for you to meet, make new friends, share ideas, form strategic partnerships, and find new opportunities!

Whether this is your very first event or not…

You'll feel welcome from the moment you arrive, and you’ll leave energized from the new connections and conversations!

Reserve your spot today!

CONNECTED CAFÉ

Online event

CONNECTED CAFÉ... Where the community meets!

One of the secrets to building relationships and creating networking success is the “One to One Coffee Meeting!”

But many find themselves challenged with coordinating schedules, locations, and being consistent at this activity.

That’s why the CONNECTED CAFÉ was created!

Join like-minded business owners, entrepreneurs, community leaders, and service-oriented people for Coffee Meetings from the comfort of your home or office!

We gather at virtual tables for introductions, then break-out to private tables for ONE TO ONE conversations!

So instead of driving all over town, invite your contacts to meet with you AND others, in this fun and innovative new way!

The CONNECTED CAFÉ is open on every First and Third Friday of the month from 7:30am to 9:30am!

Mark your calendar for every 1st and 3rd Friday!

We’ll see you there!
