What we're about
Hi! We're HANDLR and although we're a tech startup, we believe in the power of actual, real-life, face-to-face meetups! Yes it's true, we are shamelessly promoting our new life-changing mobile business management platform, but we also want to get to know you because we live (work, breathe, and sleep) for building mobile business tools that are made for you. However, you do not need to join HANDLR to join this meetup group. We just think that there needs to be more networking events in San Diego and West LA for small business owners who are looking to learn and grow.
A little about us... we're built by a small business owner for other small business owners so that we can all become bigger business owners. Our founder, Britt Alwerud owns a local San Diego business called DogZenergy that grew from a one-woman-band to a full on agency with 12 dog walkers and hundreds of clients that's growing leaps and bounds. Struggling with demand and the amount of time and energy it takes to grow and keep up with a small business, Britt decided to create HANDLR. She realized two things 1) to grow you must automate and 2) the #1 driver of growth is customer referrals. HANDLR does exactly those two things. It automates daily business operations like scheduling, fleet dispatching, team management and customer relationship management, but it also handles marketing by connecting you with a network of new customers. Through the HANDLR customer app, your customers can book more of your services and pay automatically, and new customers can see how many of their Facebook friends and neighbors already use your services. It's social proof at it's finest.
But enough about us, we want to learn more about you and meet as many business owners as we can. We believe in networking and learning so that's why we put on local meet-and-greet events and workshops for San Diego and West LA business owners looking to network and expand their businesses. So get out from behind your screen and join us at some of San Diego's most exciting venues for a fun and light way to network and connect with other business owners. Bring a fat stack of business cards, you're going to need them! Our events will include guest speakers and sponsors to give you new business tools for the modern age, as well as special pricing and happy hour menus at each venue.
