What is a B.U.I.L.D event?
B.U.I.L.D events can be about sales, marketing, branding, customer engagement, self development, finance, law, growth hacking and any other topic which in one way or another can help businesses become more awesome.
Become an event organizer
• You can attend events and benefit from networking with likeminded. However, your benefits can be massive if you organize these events yourself. Events and Meetup groups are a great way to get:
• promote your services and expertise
• test ideas
Being part of a bigger organization and group opens more doors than going about it alone. B.U.I.L.D exists in 11 cities in Europe.
Running a successful Meetup-group also requires, much like a business, grit and a lot of time, dedication and effort. What if you could go in lean and test your session by organizing only one event?
We at B.U.I.L.D give you a chance to organize just one event (or more in the future) under the B.U.I.L.D. brand with its existing members instead of starting your own Meetup group from scratch.
How to apply
If you would like to promote your service by sharing your knowledge and expertise with other professionals and entrepreneurs with a workshop or get-together; apply to get your event published and promoted by contacting EntAnon's Community Manager Jenny via e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org. You get support on how to organize great B.U.I.L.D events by experienced business event organizers.
Please note: Free events = free support, paid events = agreed profit share on a case to case basis.
The history of B.U.I.L.D
B.U.I.L.D is a brand by EntAnon (short for Entrepreneurs Anonymous). In 2015 more than 30 thought provoking events were organized by EntAnon and B.U.I.L.D (that is at least one event every second week) engaging thousands of members.
The name Entrepreneurs Anonymous could stand for being addicted to Entrepreneurship and having an urgent need to get group support for it. But actually Entrepreneurs Anonymous is more about providing a safe place with like-minded people where entrepreneurship can be explored. Here Entrepreneurs-to-be and undercover entrepreneurs from corporates have been spotted too.
Entrepreneurs Anonymous events started in Dublin, Ireland in 2011 as accountability group by former students of an entrepreneurship course. The interest for the group grew and now social events with guest speakers are organized every last Tuesday of the month. With a membership increase by 10% each month it was quickly realized last Tuesday-events were simply just not enough for the Anonymous Entrepreneurs.
B.U.I.L.D was set up to offer more opportunities for Entrepreneurs to learn from each other. So far B.U.I.L.D events like the Gigonomy Panel discussion, Speed Business Networking and the Free Business Clinic have been organized. B.U.I.L.D also organizes former DDM events. These are events for people especially interested in Data Driven Marketing.
More about B.U.I.L.D and DDM Alliance
EntAnon's brand B.U.I.L.D partnered with the former Data Driven Marketing Alliance (DDM). Future DDM meetups and other events in Copenhagen, Berlin, Belgium, Dublin, Dusseldorf, Helsinki, London, Manchester, Netherlands, Paris, Stockholm, soon Milano and other parts of Europe will be organized together with B.U.I.L.D. DDM representatives can set up online events (webinars and conferences) and use the B.U.I.L.D. groups around Europe as a channel. If another B.U.I.L.D or EntAnon event is set on the same date the organizers agree on the next best date for the DDM Alliance event to take place.
