Entrepreneur Networking Events

Taking part in entrepreneur networking events is essential for people who want to get their business off the ground. This is the perfect way to meet other entrepreneurs and make connections that could prove to be essential in the future. Most of these events are held in the evening and feature a fun and friendly setting in which to mingle with the other attendants. What follows is details of some of the biggest and best entrepreneur networking events that are due to be held in London in the next few months.

Club Workspace hosts entrepreneur networking events every Wednesday afternoon from 15:00 until 17:00. These events are held in Club Workspace's colourful and drop-in space in Clerkenwell. Members are invited to grab a cup of coffee and meet like-minded entrepreneurs in order to commercialise their ideas.

Club Workspace also hosts a number of special networking evenings where successful entrepreneurs are invited to lead talks. There are plenty of opportunities to network with other entrepreneurs and make important connections.

London based entrepreneurs should also check out the regular networking events that are hosted by Entrepreneurs in London. This special community is open to entrepreneurs of all levels, from those who have already enjoyed success to in the business world to people who are just getting started. Entrepreneurs in London has become extremely popular in recent years and networking events are usually attended by between 70 and 120 business people. Relaxed and fun networking events are held to help attendants to develop professional contacts while enjoying a drink or two.

As most businesswomen know, finding your feet in the highly competitive and predominately male business world can be rather tough. That is why a number of organisations host special networking events especially for women. The CEWE holds events every month of the year in the spacious City Business Library on Aldermanbury in EC2 (nearest tube stations: Bank, St Paul's, and Moorgate). All of these events are free to join and generally take place between 18:00 and 20:00. Among the many highlights here are the quarterly networking events that feature prominent female guest speakers, who focus their talks on how to overcome challenges in the business world.

People who want to get the most from these networking events should make sure that they attend when they are feeling relaxed and full of energy. As with any type of social activity, first impressions count and it is essential to make sure that you present yourself in the best possible light.

This is an excellent time to meet people who could provide essential allies in the running of your business, so don't be afraid to put yourself forward and make contact with the other people in the event. Approach other people rather than waiting to be approached, otherwise you may find yourself being overlooked. Try to appear confident without being arrogant and take an interest in what the other attendants have to offer as well. Make sure that you bring along plenty of business cards to distribute, as this is an excellent chance to show people what you can do before your business really takes off.
