Network Under 40 exists at the intersection of friendship and business. It’s not just about meeting people, it’s about knowing people.
Network Under 40: Tampa exists at the intersection of friendship and business. We understand that we live in a connection economy and the foundation to success in career and personal life hinges on genuine relationships with real people.
We are about mixing business and pleasure, throwing out the conventional wisdom that says you have to change who you are to ‘be professional’. Instead, we encourage you to be real, to have fun, and to cultivate authentic and meaningful relationships around social activities.
It’s not just about meeting people, it’s about knowing people. Fortunately, there are a lot of cool people for you to get to know at our events!
