Philadelphia is in the midst of making a December to remember. Revitalization is good for business, good for the residents and good for the city. Let’s get right down to the list of cost effective networking events!

Dec. 19th, 2016 7-11pm – 3rd Annual Strictly Business Networking (SBN) Holiday event – A new year in business should be a big deal to entrepreneurs. At SBN, we stretch our arms & legs to do a victory dance, raise our glass to toast our success in advance, celebrate our peers for standing in the trenches and winning big! This is our time, your time, a time that will only last 4 hours because we must go back into battle with an infallible will to move forward with no path in sight, as a result of the work a path will exist.

Dec. 27th, 2016 8pm – C.A.F.E. Conference Call – Calling All Female Entrepreneurs is a women in business sorority also known as a sisterhood who made a decision to work collectively. In addition to receiving a vision board, an accounting system like FreshBooks, a business plan, credit plan and marketing strategy, graduates also build relationships with other women business owners for cross-marketing opportunities. That is the “secret sauce” that makes C.A.F.E. unique. If you want to go further TOGETHER, then you have the right mindset to be apart of C.A.F.E.
