Networking just got a whole lot more interesting. TribeNet, a group for “Heebs” who want to network, is ready to launch in May and hopes to change the way we network in the Jewish community.
A collaboration between Alyssa Belanger of The Event Genies and Jennifer Starrett of Jew PHX, TribeNet will be a place for Jewish professionals looking to share ideas and information, connect and build professional networks, hear from leading experts on topics of interest, and, of course, socialize and have fun.
Currently, a Facebook group (facebook.com/groups/tribenetaz) has started as a way to connect TribeNet members, and plans are underway to create a member directory and a place to find business and professional profiles on jewphx.com.
Alyssa has spent the last 20 years in the events industry and currently works to plan corporate and special occasion events. TribeNet will begin hosting in-person networking events include networking mixers, business panels and social opportunities to meet others in a laid-back setting over the next few months.
A kick-off speed networking event will take place on Wednesday, May 19, from 7-9 pm at State 48 Lager House at 15600 N. Hayden Road in Scottsdale. There is no charge to attend, and guests are encouraged to RSVP on the Facebook Event and bring plenty of business cards.
Jennifer has spent the last five years as a marketing and event consultant and is excited to use her expertise to help promote TribeNet events and highlight members and their businesses.
“Teaming up with Alyssa and her extensive knowledge in the event industry seemed like a perfect opportunity,” says Jennifer. “I love working with Jewish business owners, and starting TribeNet gives us the opportunity to meet up, develop relationships with other business owners and help promote and support each other.”
