WHO Ambitious, curious or simply interested in other people's experiences, mistakes and best practices. Corporate professionals with skills and experience willing to help and share with others are most welcome!
WHAT No rules, the variety is great to get discussions going. You may sign-up to pitch (optional) in English or French your idea, concept, project or business soliciting for investors, clients, suppliers, partners, employees or just good constructive feedback. We will help you along with a big smile and an applause.
HOW Friendly. Laid-back. Conversational. Unstructured. Enjoyable. Open to those with ideas to share.
When you arrive we will personally introduce you to a few other members to get you started.
WHEN Networking is Monthly, workshops are ad-hoc opportunistic when someone who cares volunteers to share, teach or explore topics of interest to the group. We hold a regular "POLL" to see what topics our members would like.
FEES This is run by volunteers on a non-profit basis. We ask a small voluntary fee of ~5 CHF at the door when you attend each event to cover our costs. We charge a ONE-TIME* joining fee of 18.50 CHF (https://geneva-professionals.weebly.com/). *Providing you attend at least two times a year you will remain a member and never have to pay this again.
TRIAL PERIOD & REFUNDS In the unlikely event that after attending your first Networking you realize it is not for you, we offer a "no questions asked" refund. You must attend your first event within 2 months of joining the group to be eligible for a refund.
Looking forward to another great networking & pitch event! As restrictions are still in place we will run our event online for the first time!
Join us for some online networking and pitch “practice”:
As this is an online event we will not be charging the usual 5 Sfr. contribution.
NEW MEMBERS ONE-TIME* JOINING FEE 18.50 CHF:
You also need to request to join this group here as well!
This meet-up is open to anyone who is interested in the entrepreneurship spirit, large or small, NGO or for profit. Personal and organizational development, raising venture capital, or would like to get involved in the future.
The meet-up will let you talk about your innovative ideas, ask questions, establish a network, get to know people at the group or simply have a fun evening, from the comfort of your own home.
We encourage people to pitch their ideas or concepts. These 2 - 4 minute pitches are the perfect opportunity to present your business and/or idea. At the end of every pitch there is time for some Q&A.
People who are interested in pitching please write us a message in the comments under this posting. Every pitch needs to be screened by one of the organisers to make sure it's prepared and meets the criteria.
See you all there!
Helen, Rowana, Tatiana, Margit & Clément.
