Trying to engage multiple networking professionals, declining connections and leaving conversations can be both awkward and uncomfortable.Speed Networking ensures an equal amount of time with all participants, the ability to select whom you would like to connect with and an unfettered one-on-one dialogue.~~~We also believe networking events should be about .which is why Minneapolis Singles offers our Minneapolis members special speed dating and singles travel events several times a year.These are opportunities to really explore and find compatible partners in unique and fun settings!
Often times networking events can prove challenging to participants as they are only able to meet a small fraction of those whom attend.A structured and casually sophisticated offering which allows you to connect to all the participants - five to six minutes at a time. Whether you are an entrepreneur, small business owner, legal or medical professional, in the finance, real estate or entertainment industry - our attendees cover a wide range of professionals at the top or on the ladder of success in their particular industry or profession. Simply select the EVENT SCHEDULE tab on the homepage for a listing of our events. We do question businesses that promote their events through "Meet-Up" groups - only to redirect you to their own website. This may cause an event to start late but we feel a perfect opportunity to have a lovely refreshment, settle in and mingle should you wish.Rotate from business professional to business professional in a comfortable and inviting setting - just your speed. Some companies tout that they partner with many organizations including Craigslist offerings and 'Meet-Up' groups for their events. Do you offer booths to promote a product or business? While we understand many companies like to offer such sales offerings at their networking events - we prefer to keep the evening about making great business and social connections rather than being sold on products or offerings.~~What is a Speed Minneapolis Networking ‘Connect-Card’ match?Only business professionals whom garner matches are notified approx. How long will I chat with each business professional I meet? Sometimes, for our larger events, this may be shortened by 1 or 2 minutes to accommodate all of the business professionals in a timely fashion.Can I return for free if I don't get a match at an event?The length of an event is based on the number of daters in attendance.Generally, our events last about 2 hours including intermission. Our hosts will gladly accommodate seating for all ticketed members of your party.We do not permit tables of sponsors or companies looking to sell you, up-sell you or hound you to use their product or service.We provide an alternative to those promotional events that are less about networking than they are about the self-serving advancement of their sponsors.Our unparalleled popularity, a relaxed sensibility to events combined with a less is more approach is what separates us from the rest.Where we felt other companies lacked or overdid, we have redefined.We attract such great professionals but find - as in life - not everyone is ideal.Our professionals are also our product and we go to great lengths to ensure everyone meets professionals like themselves.Our 'Night For Suzanne' is a great way to give back and make great business connections while doing it!
