Date: October 13, 2021
Time: 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM CDT
While the pandemic prevents guests from safely meeting in large groups, it certainly doesn't mean that you can't still network! This event will be mimicking the in-person event as much as possible by breaking up into small facilitator-led breakout rooms to give pitches. After, the host will shuffle everyone up and do it again several more times.
11 to 11:08 - Welcome and Instructions
11:08 to 12 p.m. - Speed Networking (participants will break into small breakout rooms and give elevator pitches one-by-one, then rooms will be switched a few more times and do it all again in front of fresh faces)
12 p.m. to ?? - Open Networking (feel free to stick around to open network)
Though this event is free, if you are in a position to do so, the organizers as that participants consider making a donation to the West Ridge Chamber of Commerce or any of the partners below to help support local businesses during this challenging time.

Northside Networking was created to bring expanded business networking to the Northside Chicago neighborhoods of West Ridge, Uptown, Edgewater, Rogers Park and Roscoe Village. Events are held 5 times per year and the host rotates between the five areas. The success of these events is due to the participation of community businesses and word-of-mouth of past participants sharing within their networks.
