What we're about

Our events happen each month at a cool venue in downtown Vancouver. The event is for entrepreneurs, consultants, small business owners, business leaders and other great people that you would be happy to network with and share referrals.

We book great speakers who teach, inspire and motivate. They are high quality people who have a lot to share with the group. Successful. Leaders.

As a member of this group you will have access to our monthly events to come and learn and meet great new people in your industry and in your neighbourhood. What makes this Meetup different from others is the "Getting Real" part - we will actively be encouraging our members to go and meet each other outside of this Meetup to further develop the relationships that are formed at our events. These outside meetings could be anything from coffee to formal business meetings or referral meetings.

We hope you'll join us and participate in this group.
