As most of you know, the number of networking events in Austin is growing by the day. “Meet new people”, “have some drinks”, and “network for your business” are all common phrases when you are scouring through the events pages – I will admit, I’ve used them all. We are not here to tell you that you won’t get all of those amazing perks at a Tech Ranch Campfire session, but you will do so in a new way.
Campfire networking works by channeling the group that attends and what they can offer to the greater community of “Ranchers”. The afternoon sessions start at 3:30 PM at the Tech Ranch offices (8920 Business Park Drive, Suite 250!) with a brief introduction to the space, team members and programs. From there, Kevin leads the group on a fact-finding mission…first asking attendees to share any updates or “asks” they have regarding their entrepreneurial venture and then breaking everyone into smaller groups to really dig deep into how we can all help each other.
Kevin, our CEO and Founder, will ask each of the small groups to have a discussion. This discussion involves each person providing an “ask” and a “give”. Generally, it is a lot easier to ask for help then give advice or offer help, but entrepreneurs need as many resources and contacts as they can get to succeed.
After sharing we continue to “meet new people”, start to “have some drinks” and follow-up on potential “networking for your business”. We hope to see you at one or every upcoming Campfire!
