What we're about

New York is thriving with disruptive concepts, startups, and innovative entrepreneurs. Come join us and meet like-minded PRODUCTIVE innovators, independent professionals, and entrepreneurs of Greater New York.

Talking with fellow founders, executives, international & city officials will leave you with a sense of direction and connections to build in New York City.

OUR DEFINED PURPOSE

We believe that a business only survives and grows through continuous connections! From this belief, Curated Productive Events was born to connect professionals for lifelong business relationships through curated events, connection vetting, and social media connection strategy.

So many times we go to events attempting to meet the right connections for our business or projects. But ultimately we end up talking to unqualified intoxicated people bugging you for business cards and stalking you on social media. Let us help you put a stop to this with Curated Productive Events.

Our Team not only searches for the best professional events but also workshops, classes & conferences for our members. Every event goes through a due diligence process that is set up for the best environment.

JOIN ONLY IF YOU'RE SERIOUS ABOUT BUILDING CONNECTIONS

Our Curated Productive Events Meetup group is for Greater New York City elite startups, entrepreneurs, small business owners, independent professionals, investors, and executives. These members are serious about finding vetted resources, professionals and investors for their business or project locally or nationwide. Members join because they want to scale their ideas and seek highly qualified connections.

WELCOME!

Our Curated Productive Events Meetup group provides many awesome benefits for our members. Unlike other Meetup groups that focus on the "venue" and "attendees". We focus on how people connect during and after the event and with assisting our members with improving their connection and sourcing skills.

We invite top startup and innovation leaders to give talks on an array of topics for our Meetup Group Members.
