Chicago Geek Breakfast – April Edition

April 9, 2015 @ 12:00 am

| Free

“Geek”, “Nerd”….all are pretty cool buzzwords, but what does being a geek – or a nerd – mean?

It means that we are driven by passion for a particular subject or interest. It means that we live our lives out loud, focusing on nontraditional, unique ways for us to connect professionally and personally. It also means that we’ve moved beyond the traditional networking model of paying for a two-drink minimum and exchanging business cards. We’re about building connections, learning about what our passions are, and moving towards building our own community.

Welcome to the Chicago Geek Breakfast – every month, people from a variety of fields (from tech to marketing, from nonprofits to finance) come together to discuss their passions over breakfast. We’re a community-driven, open source-style of networking, believing that the best way to build our networks is through casual conversation. . It takes great courage to live out loud, passionately and unashamed, acting as pioneers in our chosen field. Geek Breakfasts serve as melting pots for such individuals all over the country, and Chicago serves as a great hub for those willing to share their time, their talents, and their insight.

We’re a small, but passionate group who meets every second Thursday of the month at Wow Bao, located on the ground floor of 225 N. Michigan (Michigan & Lake – we’re just past the CVS and behind the escalators). We usually hold our breakfast from 7:30 am to 9:00 pm, allowing you to finish just in time to begin a great day! It’s a relaxed vibe with some great conversation, and there are only three rules of Geek Breakfast:

It’s free to attend (you’re responsible for your own food, tax & gratuity); We encourage you to post to social media as long as you use the #chicagogeekbreakfast hashtag; and We don’t accept sponsorships (We welcome collaborating with other like-minded organizations)

If you are incredibly passionate about something you do, and you want to share – please feel free to join us. You can always reach out to us at chicagogeekbreakfast@gmail.com. RSVP via Eventbrite, and please share our info via social media.
