SCBiz Events Overview

Growing a small business can be a lonely, isolating, overwhelming and complicated venture. Luckily our SCBiz zooms and in-person meetups are here to make it much less lonely, a whole lot easier and a lot more fun!

 

As an SCBiz member, you can participate in two weekly brainstorming / biz advice zoom sessions and attend two monthly in-person meetups per month. Attendance is optional of course but we would love to see you as often as possible!  

We will be adding workshops as the year goes on. They will be announced here, on social media and by email so sign up below if you're not already on our list

Weekly Brainstorming/Biz Advice Zoom Sessions

In 2024, we will be hosting two brainstorming/biz advice zoom sessions per week where members come together to brainstorm on general business topics or on specific questions raised by our members.  It is a great opportunity to do something small business owners rarely actually do - discuss business issues with their peers - and a fun way to connect further with other SCBiz members.

The sessions are on Tuesdays from 9:15-9:45am and on Wednesdays from 12-12:30pm. The zoom link is sent via email prior to the sessions.

Monthly In-Person Meetups

We know there is no shortage of "networking" mixers and events where entrepreneurs can meetup in SoCal. However, most of them are places for you to get together socially with people who happen to be business owners. Many of them are simply places to listen to people pitch their businesses. Rarely (if at all) are there events like SCBiz meetups.

SCBiz is different. First of all, you are meeting with other business  owners to actually talk with and learn about business from guest experts and speakers, which is rare at the small business level.  Second, all SCBiz meetups are  "come as you are." There's no need to dress up, put on airs, or pretend that we're all not (mostly) introverted, socially anxious people who more often than not have no idea what we're doing. 😁 Finally, and most importantly, SCBiz meetups are designed for everyone to connect and bond with other community members, not strangers who you might not ever see again. 

Monthly in-person meetups are included in the SCBiz membership.  Non-members can attend one meetup for free to check out how wonderful they are!  They are held on the 4th Wednesday of each month from 6-7pm and/or on the 4th Thursday of each month (except where noted) from 12-1pm in the VIP Room at the San Clemente Outlets except where noted. Here are the dates so you can add them to your calendar. Speakers and topics will be added as they are determined. Registration pages will be added for RSVPs prior to the events.
