Hey everyone,

We’re super excited for next Wednesday’s Spreenkler Meetup for 6 INCREDIBLE, FANTASTIC, AWESOME reasons. Let’s not waste any time, here’s what we’re excited about:

1. OUR FEATURED SPEAKER: Carmel Hagen, CMO of Boulder, Colorado based COMMON. 

COMMON is a collaborative brand and creative community for accelerating social change. Founded in January of 2011 by Alex Bogusky, John Bielenberg and Rob Schuham, COMMON supports, connects and celebrates those designing a new era of socially-minded enterprise. 

COMMON hosts “pitch” events to celebrate and showcase entrepreneurs with world-changing business concepts. They’ve held COMMON Pitch in Boulder, New York, South Africa and have SELECTED MILWAUKEE AS THEIR 4TH PITCH CITY! 

The focus of COMMON Pitch Milwaukee is American innovation and is part of Milwaukee Innovation Week (coming in June). 

WE NEED YOU! If you have an idea that will reinvent America, go here NOW:

2. MiKE: Innovation in Milwaukee, presents the Internship Social Mixer---a relaxed event within the Spreenkler Meetup for design, tech and entrepreneurship students to mingle with companies looking for talented summer interns.

STUDENTS: If you want to meet people from the biggest, best-known brands, ultra creative agencies and kick ass startups, BE HERE!

EMPLOYERS: It’s never been easier to meet talented students. If you’ve never hired an intern, no worries. We’ll help you with that and connect you to other employers who have. C’mon, this not only helps your company, but is important to the future of our city! So GET HERE!

3. To go along with #2, next week’s Spreenkler Meetup is smack in the middle of Milwaukee’s first ever Young Professional Week!

4. Mayor Barrett (a long time supporter of the Spreenkler Meetup) is kicking things off with a special acknowledgement to NEWaukee and YP Week.

 Great job NEWaukee!

5. YPNation Tour 2012 is launching in Milwaukee during YP Week!

 And they want to hear from you! YPNation’s mission is to unify and amplify the voice of America’s Young Professionals on the key issues impacting their future. They’ll be hanging out at the Meetup and they’d love to hear what you think are important issues for YPs. 

Check for updates and videos as they facilitate a national conversation on the shared challenges, concerns, and matters affecting the YP community.


Ok, so now it’s time for you to RSVP and spread the word.

As always, can’t wait to see you there!

Forever appreciative,
