Network Under 40 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 and shared experiences.
It’s not just about meeting people, it’s about knowing people.
You should come as you are
Networking is about genuine connection, not transactional interactions
You do business with people you know, like, and trust
You succeed in the long-run when you’re more focused on adding value to others, not of personal gain
It’s about who you are, not what you do
They are changing the means and speed by which marketplace information is exchanged. Millennials add content through constant connectedness and use of social media, keeping marketers on their toes. This generation’s connectedness also demands that brands ensure or influences that the user experience is positive. Additionally, this generation will continue to change the marketplace through the blurring of traditional gender roles. Savvy marketers will broaden their reach across gender lines to take advantage of the larger, more diverse potential market for their products.
Reports on Millennial annual purchasing power widely range between $125 billion and $890 billion. A more consistent estimate is $200 billion of direct purchasing power and $500 billion of indirect spending, largely due to the influence on the spending of their mostly Baby Boomer parents.
