What we're about

Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.

— Steve Jobs, 1997

This group is for those who seek to change the world. For the idea makers to explore their imagination. For skilled and experienced nomads to express their brilliance. For curious wanders looking for a path to greatness. Because once together, truly anything is possible.

If you are looking to start a business, already have one, looking to join one, looking for a cofounder/team or have skills and experience that you want to apply to something bigger than yourself, then this group is for you!

The goal of this group is to connect with one another, learn new things, meet new people, help each other out, network with and potentially even join, start or grow a business.

So buckle up and let’s do this!

Mix N' Mash Founder Networking @ Commonwealth

Commonwealth

It's time for Round 2! Thanks to the success of the first founder networking meetup, we're back at it again. But this time, we wanted to undo our ties a little and play it cool. So get ready, because it's time to mix n' mash! Based on feedback from members in the community, we decided to ditch the traditional event space this time for something a little more fun and engaging. This is meant to be a little more low key and chill than the last meetup. Goodbye white walls, hello warm atmosphere. Look for us in yellow attire(Matt&Oana), grab a drink or some food and let's connect! ------------- When: Wednesday April 24, 2019 Time: 5:00pm - 7:00pm Location: Commonwealth Cambridge 11 Broad Canal Way, Cambridge, MA 02142 Parking: Kendall Square South Garage (it's like right next to Commonwealth) $10 after 4pm, so yay!
