For our regulars, it won’t come as a shock that up at Church St we have a string of meet-ups and events that run throughout the month. None have been going quite so long though as the Birmingham Entrepreneurs meet-up. Regular customer and now organizer of the Meet-Up, Rickie, tells us a little more about it.
Birmingham Entrepreneurs set up originally by Simon Jenner, is a monthly Meet-Up where business owners and increasingly wannabees, can get together.
The emphasis is on support and exchanging contacts rather than the dreaded selling to each other. After all, Birmingham Entrepreneurs are in the majority with fledgling or aspiring businesses who need advice and have minimum spending power!
Coming back from a stint in New York, where www.meetup.com was my prime source of interacting with likeminded souls, I was thrilled to find that Birmingham Entrepreneurs had just been set up and from my first meeting two years ago, every event is an evening where support is offered and contacts shared willingly. After all, I learnt about the delightfully quirky Moo cards during that first meeting and haven’t looked back since!
