About this event


		Networking for Entrepreneurs & Business Owners - New Year's edition image

NEW UPDATE: As at Jan 5, 2022 - Ontario announced indoor dining at restaurants will be closed and therefore unfortunately, that means this event will need to move ONLINE. So good news is that we can still host the event - it's just that it will be done virtually via Zoom. And we've hosted many virtual networking events before!

Having run the monthly networking events and socials for the Toronto Entrepreneurs & Startups Facebook group for over a year now, it was time to expand and offer this to the greater community!

Join our event to meet other GTA business owners and entrepreneurs. Make new connections, grow your network, and create new opportunities.

  • Are you an entrepreneur, aspiring entrepreneur, intrigued by entrepreneurship, working on a project within your organization, looking to network with movers and shakers, or do your simply have a great idea but you are not sure what to do with it?

If this sounds like you - then you should definitely come join us for this event!

Format:

This event will feature a welcome and 30 sec intros from each attendee at the start, and then we do speed networking for about 45 minutes and the rest of the time will be open mingle time.

We will have tables /breakout rooms that allow 4-8 attendees to gather to have conversation.

You don't want to be late and miss your chance to do your intro or miss hearing the other intros - this will help you figure out who you want to connect with further.

Watch this quick video to see what our virtual & in-person events were like in 2021:

Why Speed Networking

We believe strongly in the power of networking and building relationships. It is one of the best ways to reach new people, build trusting relationships, and a lasting business. Speed Networking allows you to meet a lot of people in a short period of time and then decide who you want to follow up / connect more with afterwards.

FAQ’s:

Who should join? You should join if you answer yes to 1 or more of these questions!

  • Do you want to expand your network/circle?
  • Are you looking for more business connections?

  • Do you want to connect with like-minded individuals?
  • Have you missed networking & developing new relationships?
  • Would you like the opportunity to meet new people and build more meaningful relationships?
  • Do you want to pitch your business to an engaged audience?

So this event is in person?

  • Update on Jan 3 - With the new COVID restrictions announced, starting Wed Jan 5 - indoor dining is closed and therefore this event is moving ONLINE - we have hosted many virtual networking sessions in the past
  • In the past - the in-person is held at at TacoTaco in Kensington Market
