Years ago in 2013, I helped launch a vibrant community in Pasadena where hundreds of entrepreneurs and friends would get together every Friday to listen to a speaker share a topic (usually business). The emphasis was on community, learning & growing together and making friends along the way.
Since moving to Orange County, I have not found any meetups where people could just be themselves and not have to worry about a hard sales pitch.
So, I'm vowing to recreate the same thing here in Orange County!
These are weekly coffee meet-ups to increase and enhance the vibrancy of the great Orange County business community. We have a cross section of interested innovators (investors, entrepreneurs, specialists, business professionals in marketing, sales, management etc) who are eager to more actively engage with other members of our local community. These sessions occur every Friday from 8:00am to 9:30am and are informal. We typically have a short structured presentation on a specific topic or do a deeper dive on a local company. All interested parties are welcome to attend.
NOTE: Speakers wanted to present to our audience. If you have a 30 minute presentation you'd like to share that would also educate people of the community, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
UPDATE: This group is about community. It is NOT ABOUT SELLING. In fact, we encourage genuine conversation. I hate being sold. You probably hate being sold. Selling is not happening in this group. Thanks for understanding.
