What we're about

"Westchester Startups / Rising Above A Boot Strap" is a business meetup group. We exist to help you be the best you can be and to make your journey to the top a bit easier, less lonely and more fun.

We strive to become the best entrepreneurial meetup and gathering group in Westchester.

Entrepreneurs are the biggest driving force behind the positive change in the world. We are the change-makers making a better tomorrow, but because it's such a worthwhile journey, it's also a hard, lonely and flooded with pitfalls.

We help you get through the maze quicker and easier by giving you the four most important elements you need to build your dreams:

Connections - Know-how - Inspiration - Community

Join us for one or more of these reasons.

1) Our Events Will Be Fun

We are serious about business but we are also serious about having fun. We put a lot of thought and preparation into making our events a bit more fun.

2) Great Speakers

We very carefully select our speakers to be top experts that are engaging in their delivery. Other groups may take whatever they can get by with. But we would rather have NO event than an event with a bad speaker.

3) A Special Vibe

How do you describe a vibe? It's almost impossible. But we want our events have that special something that is very hard to describe.

4) A Special Tribe

Our members are pretty awesome and that's ultimately what creates that vibe I just talked about.. we can't create that alone... we can only set the stage in looking for the right kind of people for our community.

5) About Us

We genuinely love people, have a passion for entrepreneurship and have a professional serving attitude. I'm pretty sure you will see the difference and love them.

Who is our meetup for?

We exist to help Entrepreneurs that have these qualities:

First, they are deadly serious.

Second, they are are not going to be stopped by anything to see their dreams come through.

In our world, being a deadly serious entrepreneur doesn't have anything to do with the stage you are at in your business... it's a mindset that leaves behind a trail of actions.

We want to support the totally committed entrepreneurs, because we know that being totally committed is the ONLY way anyone will reach their dreams. Being interested in or merely wanting to become an entrepreneur is not going to cut it.

There are 2 types of people in the world

Givers and takes. We welcome the givers with open arms, because they are the ones that will make a difference in the world.
Takers are not welcome, because whatever short-term success they might have, they leave a trail of misery them and that just not for us.

But if you genuinely want to make a difference in the world I think you will love our community. We support you and celebrate your "crazy" ideas. So if you fit the description above come join us today.

We can't wait to see you.
