What To Expect


We stress equality and tolerance of all humans regardless of gender, race, sexuality, religion, citizenship, country of origin, age, or socio-economic status. Anyone attending our events should feel the same.

These days, separating ‘business’ from ‘personal’ is over. You are your own brand so just show up and be yourself.

Our Regular Events

At our core, we throw laid-back, no pressure networking events to build community with other professionals of like mind. Encouraged attendees are dynamic, forward-thinking professionals and businesses who share similar values and want to help move the needle forward. We also volunteer and may be seen participating in a community event here and there.
