OUT PROFESSIONALS INVITES YOU TO GROW YOUR BUSINESS BY NETWORKING WITH LGBT+ PROFESSIONALS AT BIZCONNECT.
Launched just this spring, BizConnect is an exciting Out Professionals series that aims to foster business relationships among LGBT+ self-starters -- present and potential entrepreneurs, business owners and other client-oriented professionals.
BizConnect reconvenes Tuesday evening, May 14. Join us at 6:30 p.m. at Emerge212, 1185 Avenue of the Americas. At this and two other Midtown locations, Emerge212 offers elevated co-working spaces unique in style, sophistication and service.
Former OP Board President John Kneapler invites attendees to kick off the evening with a relaxed series of brief introductions intended to optimize your networking for the remainder of the evening.
To prepare, bring 50 business cards or flyers and rehearse a 30-second introduction: Who are you? What do you do? What do you want out of tonight's event? You are invited to enjoy an open bar and light fare.
The evening's aim? To help you grow your business by forming new business relationships, identifying potential clients and vendors, and expanding your referral network with other LGBT+ business professionals.
This edition of BizConnect is limited to 50 registrants. Register in advance to gain priority access to future events in Out Professionals' innovative new B2B networking series.
Special thanks to our sponsor and host for the evening, Emerge212
Inspired by the best in hospitality, design and technology, Emerge212 brings your business what other office space providers simply do not. Unlike co-working spaces or other shared office environments, Emerge212 elevates the officing experience at every turn, allowing your business to do what it does best. Located exclusively in New York City, Emerge212 is a wholly owned subsidiary of SL Green Realty Corp and has been redefining NYC real estate with innovative spaces and design solutions since 1999. Smart design is only part of our focus: we’re providing flexible office space solutions that minimize the overhead and restrictive terms of typical office leases. What’s more, we’ve extended our offering to include Virtual Office spaces that provide a real headquarters in NYC – including mail and receptionist services – so you can do business all over the world.
On Wednesday, May 22, from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m., Out Professionals launches BizConnect -- purposeful networking for LGBT+ entrepreneurs, business owners, and other self-starters. It's important to arrive on time: Program begins promptly at 7 p.m. Open bar, light fare.
