Last year we ran a pilot to test local meetups for the Fizzle community. We learned a few things in the process:
- It doesn’t make sense to limit meetups to one specific date and time around the world
- Local meetup organizers should have more control over the process
- We should open Fizzle meetups to readers of the Sparkline, listeners of The Fizzle Show, and other local entrepreneurs
Community is everything for an entrepreneur. In fact, a local support system of fellow entrepreneurs can be the difference between persevering and quitting. And we’re not a fan of quitting around here.
So, we’re bringing meetups back and incorporating what we’ve learned.
Fizzle meetups will now be organized by members of the Fizzle community. They’ll get to choose the time, date, location, and frequency of meetups. In other words, we’re putting the control in your hands and we couldn’t be more excited about it.
We’ve setup a meetups hub page, which we’ll keep constantly updated with the latest and greatest from organizers around the world. If you can’t find a meetup in your city, you’ll also have the option to organize a meetup of your own.
Go, check out the meetups page. The Fizzle community in your city can’t wait to meet you.
P.S. You do not have to be a Fizzle member to attend these meetups. These are for any independent entrepreneur working to build something they care about.
