This is a group to help potential, new and existing business owners find a local business partner and/or investor in DE and PA. The idea is to bring people together, branch off into common interest groups, share ideas and find a compatible partner/investor who wants to start (or invest in) a business with you. Hopefully, by pulling together local resources, we'll build businesses that integrate well with the surrounding communities.
There will NOT be educational speakers and presentations. At the beginning of the meetup, we'll rely on attendees to make suggestions on the best way connections can be made then we'll match up, chat ... and hopefully create a lasting business partnership. It may evolve into a 'pitch' session at a later event, if that works for the interested parties.
This will only work if a significant number of people attend the events, so continuance of the Meetup will be dependent upon ample interest.
The Meetup location is set for Media, PA ... however, events could be held anywhere within a 30 mile radius of that location. Suggestions welcome.
Efforts will be made to arrange for free venues (possibly outside during nice weather), but if a rental fee is necessary, we'll need to split accordingly. Also, if a more formal venue is desired (office, food, drink) ... that will certainly be considered but I'll need to rely on attendees to help with reservations et al.
I'll also be looking for another event coordinator to share responsibilities, so if you're interested, let me know!
Let's pull together all those interested in any aspect of the coffee, beer, wine, chocolate, or food business! Come to test out your idea, get some info, or find a partner/investor.
If you want to see a list of all businesses members of this group would like to start [or expand upon], check out the "Message Board" under "More" from your PC [not available in the app] OR let me know and I'll send it to you.
Hope to see you there!
