This month's Spreenkler Meetup will focus on starting an idea.
Four years ago the simple idea of bringing people together to share their passion and talent launched as Spreenkler. Since then, Spreenkler has influenced Milwaukee's social media, design and education scenes in many ways.
We move into year five stronger than ever.
Having just launched the first ever Seed Incubator Program for tech startups (http://www.SpreenklerTalentLabs.org/startup), we're fulfilling another element our vision of helping ideas connect with funding to create new, innovative companies and a reenergized Milwaukee.
Featured speaker Berni Xiong exemplifies the Spreenkler spirit.
The success of Spreenkler would not be possible without you! Together, our persistence and courage is changing Milwaukee in positive ways. There's no better representation of this than January's featured speaker, Bernie Xiong (http://www.bernixiong.com/).
Unfulfilled, Berni kicked corporate America (and a big time salary) to the curb to launch her own business. Since then, she's dealt with the sacrifices and challenges that come with entrepreneurship. Keeping a chin up, she's battled through and is now on the verge of writing a book. Berni will share more of her story, what's coming next, and will leave you inspired!
Entrepreneur creates portable fragrance!
Starting something is no easy task. Just ask Elizabeth Noe, creator of a new line of portable fragrance products, Ruddy Water (http://www.ruddywater.com/). In a short time she's already accumulated the battle scars of the typical entrepreneur. And like successful entrepreneurs, Elizabeth keeps moving her idea forward. We're proud of what she's accomplished and honored to be part of her product launch. To celebrate another milestone, Elizabeth will offer a free sample of her first scent, Blushed, with every purchase of a special Spreenkler Meetup drink, also called Blushed!
Drink specials from the crew at the Warehouse!
Thanks to the generosity of our venue sponsor, there will be a special on domestic beer! Perfect to go along with the FREE pizza from Transfer and VIA on Downer!
One last thing...
Thought we'd also mention that Romke will DJ before and after the Meetup while you connect with other creatives. We hear there might be some funky Michael Jackson mix surprise.
