Communities are made of people, culture is created by these individuals. We're excited to have such a great community with Columbus Web Group, and honored to have Jay Clouse who has been a catalyst for cultural shifts in the community.

We've all been there. Going to a networking event with the idea of building new relationships, dreading it, and ultimately leaving without really feeling more connected to anyone.

As an introvert, nothing sounds more daunting than a large group of strangers. In this talk, Jay will talk about the strategies he has used as an introvert to go being "networking" and build meaningful, genuine relationships in the community.

Jay Clouse is a writer and entrepreneur from Columbus, Ohio. He is currently the founder of Unreal Collective, co-host of the upside podcast, and author for Linkedin Learning /

Jay fell in love with building products through his first software startup, Tixers, which was acquired in 2015.

After a stint in product management at a venture-backed healthcare startup, Jay founded Unreal Collective in 2017 to combine his interests in product and community building. Unreal Collective is a 12-week, online accelerator for founders and freelancers.
