Krrb Meetups.

Welcome to Krrb... wanna do some business?

Join Krrb and Greenpoint Coworking at 7pm on Thursday April 28th for a networking and local business development workshop!

OK the Internet is great, we all get it … the whole world at our fingertips. But what if you’re a local business, vendor or service provider looking to simply connect with your neighbors? There is a lot of buzz around how the Internet is getting hyper-local, but what does that mean and how can it benefit local commerce?

Join Krrb and Greenpoint Coworking for a networking and local business development workshop lead by George Eid, founder of Krrb and cofounder of AREA 17, the interactive agency that created Krrb. We’ll discuss the current landscape of local web, including which websites (and mobile apps) are effectively reaching your neighbors and how to take advantage of it all with the least effort possible.

Meet and network with other local independent businesses in NYC and share your personal challenges, tips and best practices.

This meetup is for independent designers, crafters, market vendors, photographers, filmmakers, gardeners, nutritionists, trainers, shop owners or any business-minded person looking to take advantage of all that the Internet has to offer, while retaining a personal and face-to-face relationship with clients and customers.

For those of you interested in using Krrb for business, we’ll also be discussing its benefits and how to get the most out of our service. Krrb staff will be on-hand, answering questions and offering one-to-one support in setting up your own personal corner on Krrb. All participants will receive free Krrb credits and personal on-going support.

And if that’s not enough, refreshments will be provided.
