Network Under 40 provided our group, The American Cancer Society Young Professionals Board, the ideal opportunity to interact with other young professionals in the Nashville area. We love the laid back, yet classy atmosphere of the events which allow for easy conversation and mingling. The ambassadors helped with introductions and made sure everyone felt comfortable. The promotion and communication with attendees helped boost the event and awareness of our nonprofit and its initiative. It was inspiring to have guests come up to the table expressing their excitement to learn more from our group and to get involved. We would be honored to collaborate with Network Under 40 again in the future.
I gave Network Under 40 a try because I had nothing to lose. At the first event, I met someone with whom we now do business. I can directly tie her contract to securing a $2.2M grant. Yes, I will be attending another Network Under 40 event.
Network Under 40 has proven to be an amazing business networking platform for our company, WPM Real Estate. My colleagues and I are dedicated to attending each and every event and making great new contacts in Baltimore to help our business grow. I highly recommend this as a tool to anyone who is looking to market, promote, and share their business with others as well as obtain potential business partners in the Baltimore area. Network Under 40 is a program we believe in and have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of at 2 East Wells. We are always excited to find out where the next venue will be and have made some great new professional and personal connections along the way.
The events are very well-organized, beautiful venues each time with great food/drinks… basically great environment to network and meet lots of quality people.
Network Under 40 is an awesome outlet for young professionals. I have made some lucrative connections because of this organization and I highly recommend it to professionals under 40 looking to make new connections for business in Baltimore.
Network Under 40 featured the organization I volunteer with, Stand Up For Kids, this November at the Big Stick and it was such a great experience. It gave us a unique platform to share information about our organization with a group of professional peers, and it was a really fun event on top of that. Strother made everything enjoyable and easy and I plan to attend future events just to continue networking and meeting other attendees.
Network Under 40 was relaxed and fun! If you are looking for a different kind of event that doesn’t feel forced, definitely give this a try. It was also a great opportunity to check out a new neighborhood and bar.
“What you’ve created is really so impressive. The event was helpful, un-stuffy, well run and clearly thought out. As a network-er it was worthwhile and exciting to attend
Last night was one of the best networking events I’ve ever been to! An incredible group of people! I’m look forward to future events!
I wanted to thank you for hosting a great event at the Buckhead Club last night. I thought everything was fantastic, everyone was very nice, and one of the best networking events I’ve been to in a while.
I have enjoyed meeting many new people at the recent Network Over 40 events in Atlanta. The opportunity to connect, converse and learn about what others are doing, how they do it and why motivates me as I develop my own business. At the events I have met HR and IT professionals, entrepreneurs, event planners, teachers, realtors, tax advisers and many others. I enjoy learning who they are and what inspires each of them personally and professionally.
I am a big fan of the Atlanta Under 40 events. They draw a great crowd of young professionals and there’s always good energy – lots of smiles and laughter. I see familiar faces and meet new people every time. I love that the venue is different each month – it keeps things fresh and interesting, and exposes me to parts of the city I may not venture to on my own. Whether you’re new to Atlanta or are a native, looking for a job, some new friends (or even a date!), it’s a great way to enjoy an evening.
Not the typical networking event… ATL Under 40 provides a fun and casual atmosphere where it is easy to meet professionals across a variety of industries, reconnect with friends, and try out a local spot around the city!
Atlanta Under 40 is one of the most open networking groups I’ve ever attended. The individuals that come to this event are eager to meet everyone in the room and learn more about them. I strongly encourage Atlanta Under 40 events for those that need to network for their business or those that simply want to socialize. Thumbs up!
As a native of Atlanta, a business man, a world traveler, and a self-proclaimed social butterfly, I can attest that Darrah has a keen sense of how to provide a casual and elegant atmosphere for networking. She is filling the need of a balanced business/social group in Atlanta for the ever-busier urban hustlers, dreamers, and fun-seekers. After speaking with her group’s leadership, I have no doubt Atlanta Under 40 will continue its up-swell alongside the rising tide of Atlanta’s blooming business environment. I expect to return and continue to find lasting relationships. I look forward to meeting you all there!
Atlanta Under 40 is always a great event. It is one of the more relaxed business networking events in the city. Great people every month and always at a great location.
Who knew networking could be so fun! It was wonderful being able to celebrate 3 years of this amazing organization at Tongue & Groove with young professionals in all different career fields who love what they do. Big kudos to Darrah and her passion to bring people together at a venue for one evening monthly to have a good time, while making meaningful connections. It’s basically the biggest happy hour in the city! I’ve attended 2 events and I’ve never walked away disappointed with the conversations or connections made. I loved inviting my circle of friends and already have other people who couldn’t attend ask me about it the following day. I would recommend anyone going! You won’t regret it.
Atlanta Under 40 is the best networking event I have had the opportunity to attend in Atlanta. They create a relaxing atmosphere that takes away the pressures of meeting people. I have attended 2 events so far and they continue to wow me with the creativity behind venue planning. I have yet to bring or meet a young professional who has not enjoyed this amazing networking experience. There is no membership fee or strings attached, which I find to be the most unique. Atlanta Under 40 has created a powerhouse among networking events.
I have been attending the Under 40 events since last year and I love them! I have made several new friendships and business partnerships. I look forward to these every month – it is a great chance to network with people in your age range and have fun doing it! The previous event at the Glenn Hotel was very beautiful; perfect weather on a rooftop overlooking Atlanta, what more could you want?
Atlanta Under 40 has been one of the most beneficial network events for my company here in Atlanta. Atlanta Under 40 offers an excellent chance to network with people from various industries in a great environment at some of Atlanta most prominent venues.
Thank you Darrah for putting on such a great event! I think I can speak for everyone in saying that last night’s event was a huge success. I made several connections with guests of the event that I can honestly say will help me with my business going forward, whether it be a referral partnership or direct opportunity for Paymetrix HR. I will continue to support Atlanta Under 40 at every chance and will be sure to tell my friends and associates it is a can’t miss event. I look forward to the next Atlanta Under 40 event!
The Atlanta Under 40 events are really something special. If you’re looking to expand your network and branch out to meet different people, this is definitely the place for you!
Atlanta Under 40 is an absolute must-attend, and by far my favorite Atlanta networking event. Not only have I made invaluable business contacts through Atlanta Under 40, but I’ve also made a ton of good friends. I’m a huge fan!
As a law firm consultant, I constantly express to my clients the importance of effective networking to increase profitability. Not only must one practice it but also be efficient at it by leveraging the exact relationships that propel the bottom line in the least amount of time. With all the networking groups popping up, one can easily get filled with unproductive and dead-end leads. Atlanta Under 40 impressively separated itself from these ineffective “meet-ups” by inviting only credible and ambitious professionals that share the drive to evolve their own definition of success. If your behavior impacts your own bottom line, I highly recommend you make attending an Atlanta Under 40 event one of your new year’s resolutions.

When attending my first Atlanta Under 40 event, it was primarily to grow my network for possible job leads, realizing the events provided much more. The connections made at the event have gone beyond simple connections. Great locations, interesting people, lasting connections.
Being a part of Atlanta Under 40 has been a great networking tool for me. I have met a lot of new people and have made some great friends. I feel that Atlanta Under 40 is a professional relaxing place to network with people your own age.
You always hear that networking events are crucial to your success, but you might not always want to attend because you’ll know no one there. AU40 is the exception – working professionals from a variety of industries come together once a month in an inviting and relaxed atmosphere where everyone is greeted with a warm welcome. To date, I have opened more than 5 new accounts, had a handful of meetings, and made some of my best friends in Atlanta. I’m incredibly grateful for all of the new experiences I have had through AU40 and am looking forward to making new connections in 2012.
Arrived for my first event at “The Ivy”. Had been wanting to try this place, so I was excited! Everyone who attended was nice, down to earth, and fun! I had the time of my life networking! And to top it off…later I discovered I won a door prize for a $10 gift certificate at “The Ivy” ! It was a magical night!
