LinkChesapeake & You

We’re not your run-of-the-mill networking group. We’re all neighbors. A close-knit community. We want to build relationships that last, not just for networking success. LinkChesapeake means no memberships, no fees, just a chance to share handshakes, opportunities, and ideas with your hometown neighbors.

About LinkChesapeake​

 

LinkChesapeake is all about connecting genuine, hard-working people who want to help each other build their businesses by gathering face-to-face on a monthly basis to exchange opportunities and ideas.  Our hope is that our attendees find new connections and build lasting relationships that impact their businesses for years to come.

LinkChesapeake will be launched on January 7th, 2020.  We will partner with local venues for happy hours, cruises, and other events on the first Tuesday of every month.  We offer monthly sponsorship opportunities for businesses that want to promote their brand to our list of current and former attendees.

We post our events on Eventbrite and ask that everyone register for the event so we can provide name tags and appetizers.

If you have any questions about sponsorship opportunities or our events, please contact us.

FAQs

When are events?
Events are held on the 1st Tuesday of each month.
Who should go?

If you own a business, run a business, or are in sales for a business in the greater Chesapeake area, LinkChesapeake is for you.

Is there a fee for LinkChesapeake? Do I need to join?

Neither. No fee, no membership, no obligation. However, we do request that you register for each event so we can get a head count for space and appetizers.

What should I expect?

Minimal Agenda
LinkChesapeake is a come as you are, arrive when you want, leave when you want event.

Check-in (starting at 5:30PM)
When you walk in the door, we ask that you visit our registration table to simply check in, drop a card in the bag for the drawing, and get a nametag.  After that, you are free to socialize and form new friendships and business contacts!

Announcements (6:15PM)
Hear a brief introduction from our sponsor and host.

Door Prize (7:45PM)
We always have a monthly prize drawing from our “business card in a bag”, so you’ll want to be around for that (you must be present to win). Past prizes have included dinner for two, $50 Amazon gift cards, and tickets to the movies.

Other than that, you’re on your own to meet your neighbors, make new contacts, and maximize business your opportunities.

Cash Bar
Buy your own drinks, but appetizers are graciously provided by the venue host!

What should I bring?

Bring a few buckaroos for a drink or three, some business cards, and a genuine smile.

Can I bring flyers and promotional brochures?

You may bring whatever you’d like to personally hand to others, however, we do not accommodate for a table of materials at these events. People are more inclined to shake your hand and receive a business card than to gather a bag full of handouts. Think networking, not trade show!

Can I bring a friend?

If your friend owns, runs, or work in sales for a business, absolutely.  Please make sure that they register in advance too.

Note: please limit attendance to 2 representatives per company.

What if I don’t know anyone?

Great! You might do better in making new friends and contacts than those who only huddle with the people they already know.

Can I eat dinner there?

Absolutely! If you meet someone and decide to talk further over dinner or want to call your main squeeze or family to meet you for dinner afterwards, go for it! We definitely want to show our support to the restaurants who have graciously provided our venues.  If you stay or come back for dinner later, please make sure to tell them that you are there because of LinkChesapeake!
