Mar 19, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
On Wednesday, February 19th at 7pm, the Brooklyn Entrepreneurs (BKE) group invites you join us at the Huge offices in Dumbo for a chance to Build Your Brooklyn Network.
The event will be a similar formula to our last event – high energy short presentations and free drinks – except this time instead of BK businesses, we’ll be showcasing the best of BK networking resources: That means a handpicked group of the best co-working spaces and city-wide resource centers from across the borough. This’ll be a chance for attendees to gain knowledge and resources on how to expand their BK network, and gain important resources for building their kick ass BK business.
Complimentary drinks will be served.
