What we're about

Are you an Entrepreneur? Do you want to be an Entrepreneur? Then this group is for YOU! This group exists to help network to expand our client base as well as opportunities to grow personally to address common challenges Entrepreneurs face during their business development journey.

Unlike many other networking groups, this group will NOT be limited to one representative per industry - this is to give you the opportunity to meet the needs of your client or referral by finding the one who best meets them and not limited to the first one to the group. Please join our LinkedIn Group as well - Schaumburg Entrepreneurs.

Our Group meets on the 2nd & 4th Thursdays of every month. The format is as follows:

2nd Thursday - 8:30a - 10:00a - Casual Networking - Starbucks Streets of Woodfield

4th Thursday - 8:30a - 10:00a - Network & Learn - Richard Walkers Pancake House

Agenda topics for the Network & Learn Events announced in the details of each meeting. I ask you arrive on time for this event as to not disrupt our speakers since the door is at the front of the room.

Messenger Bots! Revolutionize your Business Communication

Richard Walkers Pancake House

Social Media has become a primary mode of connection for businesses to meet their customers. Social Media is an exceptional as well as cost effective way for you to generate your own leads. Alex Medina, founder of CureOpt, works with his clients to increase their revenue by leveraging their online presence via Internet & Social Marketing. Today he will be discussing how to use FaceBook Messenger Bots, an often underutilized tool in your social media cabinet. ********************************************************************************* In order to maximize our time during this value packed 90 minute meeting, our meeting begins promptly at 8:30am. Please arrive on time, late arrivals are disruptive during our education session. Agenda: 8:30a - 8:35a Welcome/Order Breakfast 8:40a - 9:00a 30 Second Commercials - What value do you bring clients? 9:00a - 9:30a Education Session 9:30a - 10:00a Networking/Eating This group is NOT exclusive! We feel there is a right fit for every one of our referrals and limiting it to a single person because they arrived to the group first is not the way to run an effective system. Build relationships, demonstrate your added value and you will gain the confidence of our members and will earn referrals. Our venues do not charge us for space. Please support the businesses that support our unique needs by ordering food and/or beverage at these meetings. Finding free space that is conducive to our needs is a challenge in the area. We need to appreciate it so they continue to allow us to use this space at no charge. This is what allows this Meetup to continue to be free.

Activate Your Money Brain

The lack of financial education has had a devastating effect on small businesses as well as families. GoFundMe is on the rise to help families manage the burden of serious illness or premature death, taxes force families to sell small businesses because they are not prepared for the impact of succession, inflation and stagnating income levels delays the retirement of many. Financial education can be the difference between success and failure. Register to learn the financial strategies to protect your family and small business from these agents of destruction. Agenda: 6:30p - 7:00p - Check In & Networking 7:00p - 8:00p - Educational Session 8:00p - 8:30p - Q&A
