For your convenience, we have compiled this list of groups that are organizing some quality events of note in the Bay Area. Please feel free to improve this list by commenting and recommending adding relevant groups we may have missed!
1. Drink Entrepreneurs
> Description: DrinkEntrepreneurs is a monthly event where entrepreneurs connect in a relaxed way. The event currently runs every first Thursday of the month in Shanghai, Paris, London, San Francisco and many other cities. Thousands of entrepreneurs have met partners, co-workers, investors and friends thanks to the special and relaxed atmosphere of the event. DrinkEntrepreneurs is different from other events because it’s very laid back and informal. It’s like having a beer with friends, nothing like overtime. It’s non-profit, we do it for fun. There are lots of young startupers and you don’t wear a tie unless you plan to use it for a lap dance!
> Frequency: Every month.
