What we're about

There are too many Startups Events in the Bay area and they can be awkward. Night of Networking, lecture talk/skill building, and more networking. You exchange business cards and try to build a relationship from a few minutes of talking. Let's switch up the beat and focus on getting to know each other and having fun!

Develop better relationships.

Get to know other entrepreneurs, programmers, designers, investors in a non-business setting! Relax, chill out, express yourself and connect!
