A structured and casually sophisticated offering which allows you to connect to all the participants - five to six minutes at a time. Whether you are an entrepreneur, small business owner, legal or medical professional, in the finance, real estate or entertainment industry - our attendees cover a wide range of professionals at the top or on the ladder of success in their particular industry or profession. Simply select the EVENT SCHEDULE tab on the homepage for a listing of our events. We do question businesses that promote their events through "Meet-Up" groups - only to redirect you to their own website. This may cause an event to start late but we feel a perfect opportunity to have a lovely refreshment, settle in and mingle should you wish.Rotate from business professional to business professional in a comfortable and inviting setting - just your speed. Some companies tout that they partner with many organizations including Craigslist offerings and 'Meet-Up' groups for their events. Do you offer booths to promote a product or business? While we understand many companies like to offer such sales offerings at their networking events - we prefer to keep the evening about making great business and social connections rather than being sold on products or offerings.~~What is a Speed NY Networking ‘Connect-Card’ match?Speed NY Networking events vary in size, anywhere from 14 - 25 professionals register for any given event. Register/Info Payment can only be accepted through the website.We only accept payment via our secure and encrypted checkout systems.We do not permit tables of sponsors or companies looking to sell you, up-sell you or hound you to use their product or service.We provide an alternative to those promotional events that are less about networking than they are about the self-serving advancement of their sponsors.
This may upset some but we feel our attendees as a whole appreciate the extra effort and we hope you do too.
A ‘Connect-Card’ match means you checked each other on your 'Connect-Card'.
Your email address and first name will be exchanged with this person or persons 24 hours after the event.
So for you who have given it a shot, my questions are: For reference, I'm 25F living in Brooklyn.
Would love to hear any stories as I think the concept in itself is pretty interesting.
