Thank you very much for your love and support in making 2018 an incredible experience, good memories, helping us maintain an average of 103+ members/mo. and proving the haters wrong again!

Join us for our “Winter Holiday 2018 Celebration” which will be epic, highly interactive and productive business networking event in a relaxed, non-pressure environment. We had 133 people in Sept, 124 ppl in Aug, 118 ppl in July and 105 ppl in June, which was cross promoted by 5+ other awesome JV groups. If you want some amazing great value, then check out this explosive event, look at the past pics and/or ask the past guests about it.

Thus imagine 100-130+ biz and tech prospects for you to meet! Where and when else can you do this?

We are determined to make this better than the 'typical networking over beers' event and want everyone to be one step closer to their goals even if you are introverted and are not comfortable in large crowd settings (That's why we have a new unique icebreaker's games later on).

The evening will be full of amazing entrepreneurs, business, and smart tech ppl mingling. The past events were so popular that the room overfilled the fire code limit. Come alone or bring a friend to meet some new sharp friendly people, who are like you.

You’re welcome to join us earlier from 5 pm for their Happy Hours' Specials before the actual event starts later. Everyone is welcome!

Everyone has a need/itch that they can't seem to scratch for their own business. Thus the law of probability states that the answer to your need is somewhere in the room or someone in the room knows someone else who can be a solution/option to it, likewise you may be the solution or option to someone's need. We believe in thinking outside of the box to help everyone get connected with solutions or options. We've been to those other Meetups where they would throw you in a room, let you be and only the most extroverted person get results while the rest goes home with negative feelings and little/no results.

To reserve tickets for this event, then you need to buy them via EventBrite’s link. RSVPing on MeetUp will NOT guarantee you a ticket. LIMITED TICKETS AVAILABLE for the brilliant Early Birds of only $15/person using the link below until Nov. 30th=Fri. then it will be $20/person from Dec. 1st-Dec. 9th and the Procrastinators’ Special is $30/person on Dec. 10th=Mon.

We will have creative, new icebreakers’ activities to help you meet more people, so please bring your business cards for the door prizes as well.
