Social Entrepreneurs, Changemakers, Others FREE Networking in DC! Monthly Meetup

Social entrepreneurs, changemakers, consultants, investors, community builders and others interested in personal, business, spiritual and community advancement are coming together, learning together and succeeding together! EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED!

Share with each other what you are up to, what you are looking for, what you can provide, your concerns, objectives and brilliant insights. Join members of various Meetup groups in our Network to create massive value for attendees! Meet high quality, dynamic and successful social entrepreneurs, investors, and community builders who attend this community networking event regularly. Help build community spirit and connect with potential prospects and allies for mutual advancement in the community!

We hope to collaborate with other web and technology social entrepreneurs who are familiar with word press or the model. Let's plan social entrepreneurial projects you could be excited about....beginning with helping to co-create memorable moments together each month to build trust and strengthen the community friendship spirit! Support Mayor Vincent Gray's vision for One City with community action!

NOTE: We plan to start with conversations over lunch (self-pay) at dining tables, then proceed with a round of introductions and standup networking after lunch at Burma Restaurant, 740 6th St. NW, 2nd Floor, Wash. DC, one block from Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro station, red, yellow, green lines on Metro. Follow Chinatown exit. Paid garage parking at same address or free parking on street on Sundays if you can find it.

Please show your support by offering to donate $2 (or whatever you wish) to cover part of the expenses and for the ABC charity fund. Please volunteer to help continue these events. It is a great way to have fun working together and getting to know each other through the process. Many joint ventures and new clients began through volunteering together. All attendees will have the opportunity to introduce yourself and practice your short "elevator pitch" with the entire group! We look forward to learning about you and exchanging ideas with you!

    The meetup was very well attended. I enjoyed the opportunity to introduce myself in front of a large crowd. I made a few god contacts. The food was very good and generous portions.

    This meetup was fantastic. Very different than any other meetup I have attended. I met lots of interesting people. Made a few professional and set up first appointments for three potential clients. I highly recommend attending this meetup. Also, lunch was delicious.

    We love this ongoing East/West Wash. DC tradition and structure for the fulfillment of people's aspirations for a beautiful community (ABC) in Downtown, Chinatown, Washington, DC! Since all of us lead busy professional lives, this is the time we set aside to connect in person each month so we can introduce our friends/allies to you! Thanks for your ongoing participation and support!
