Moms in Business
Most people have heard of speed dating, but the Mompreneurs of Minnesota have put a new twist on it by hosting "speed networking" events to make moms who are new to business feel more comfortable with the process of networking and exchanging business cards.
Organizer and mom, Jennifer Pogatchnik, thought other mompreneurs new to the group would be more comfortable networking in a safe, structured environment where they could make more contacts in a shorter amount of time. The event opens with a discussion on networking and then the moms have a chance to meet another mom for three minutes at a time to share their business information.
If you don't have any events like this in your area, you might want to start one up.
You can read more about the event and the concept here: Mix it up at the ‘Mompreneur Mixer’
