Welcome to the group! We're happy that you're a part of our growing community. Networking Night in Toronto is part of the JELLY Social (http://jellysocial.ca/) network, which has held hundreds of professional networking events across the GTA for the past several years. The JELLY network actually has an overall community 3500+ members, which you can tap into at our networking events.
What is JELLY Social? JELLY Social is a non-profit organization that operates under a core belief; a community that collaborates together, succeeds together. Did you know that professionals with 20 or more peers in their network that they can reach out to for support are 75% more likely to succeed than those with less than 20 peers? Why? It's because of the network effect! The more peers that we can turn to, the more likely we are to get the specific support we need to succeed - this is always true, regardless of whether we're entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, or students. But why stop at just 20 peers...imagine what you could achieve with THOUSANDS of local entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs supporting you! This is exactly why JELLY Social is here.
We host our popular monthly networking events with Jelly Social in Mississauga, Brampton, Etobicoke, and Downtown Toronto, so that you can also have an opportunity to tap into the community in-person. The events follow a semi-structured format, so that you can always expect a consistent experience:
First 30 min: Facilitated Networking (our team of volunteers personally connect you with other guests)
Next 30 min: Open Mic (we'll invite some guests to do a short intro for the crowd)
Final 60 min: Open Networking (you network while we get you connected with everyone else in the room)
