Multi-generational, our age range has been 20 to 70+. Several investors make periodic visits for those of you looking for capital.
RSVPs on the Meetup website don't include participants from our hosts personal email list and LinkedIn groups. Many regulars just show up. We don't cancel a meeting due to low RSVPs on Meetup. Our largest attendance was about 20 people, but I've enjoyed smaller groups where I get to hear more from each person.
Let the host know what kind of expert you would like to have at a future meeting and feel free to refer speakers.
