Mixers and Networking-are you getting yourself out there?
You may feel you are to busy to attend these events, but they act as a nice break from being stuck in front of a computer. And sometimes they can count as being at work because you are inevitably spreading the name of your business across an audience that can add value to your business-and it's a great chance to learn something and get ideas.
You will see the value in forming and maintaining a strong contact base, which will serve you well for years to come.
There are many strong startup communities around the world now, and in times of economic uncertainty I truly believe that these communities have helped each startup progress in this period that can be challenging for many.
It is even more valuable for young entrepreneurs to attend these events and learn from more
experienced entrepreneurs and investors as well as building useful contacts.
These events are all about mutual benefits. How can you offer a service or help another? There will be times when you may need help or advice, and you will want to have built a strong network.
Remember, networking events give you the chance to relax and socialize for a few hours in what is a time when working on your startup can include working long into the night. And better still, it counts as work.
You're marketing your business and yourself, and best of all you are creating connections.
We hope to see you at one of our mixers! The next one is coming up: September 27th, 2017 from 6pm-7pm at Dr. Riemers Office: 446 C St Lemoore, CA 93245
