A willingness to share knowledge, expertise and network is required of everyone who attends a EN meeting. Valuable takeaways from every meeting are business-to-business connections, networking and technical support and subject expertise shared by other entrepreneurs and service providers.
Two other requirements are: no job seekers, and no overt proselytizing by service providers. Anyone seen aggressively working the room with a fistful of business cards is not invited back. We believe these three rules will serve us well, Consequently, we are diligent in observing them.
The agenda for each luncheon meeting will include:
round table introductions
feedback from a panel of experts
a designated networking period and
facilitated discussions of topics that are of interest to participants.
presentations by 2 -4 new entrepreneurs
Each presenter has 10 minutes with Power Point, to make his/her case. Although the presenters may be seeking funding for their ventures, the meetings are primarily intended to give entrepreneurs a chance to hone their presentation skills and network with like-minded people who can be of help.
Network Members will be allowed to invite up to 2 aspiring, new or seasoned entrepreneurs to attend a Network Luncheon. Network member or invitee will be required to pay for lunch.
