This month’s theme: Start-ups & the Internet
Many people dreaming of leaving the corporate world are considering starting their own businesses, and many of these businesses will be online.
Getting your business idea started online (even if it’s not a web startup) allows you to develop your concept, test your strategy and collect important information about potential customers before leaving the safety of your corporate job.
There is no set structure to this conversation but if you are interested in starting something online and would like to network, mingle and chat with a bunch of people in a similar boat, please come along.
NB: The theme is just a starting point, if you are interested in other Esc areas we actively encourage you to come along. There are always a wide variety of people at Esc events (career changers, entrepreneurs, wannabe entrepreneurs, and adventurers) and the conversations will be about anything Esc-related.
Don’t be shy… come along!

What is an Esc Meetup?
Escape the City Meetups are your opportunity to meet likeminded people in an informal environment - be they corporate professionals looking to do something different or escapees who have already made the big leap away from the corporate world.
Whether you are looking for an exciting job, starting your own business, or going on a big adventure – at our Meetups you’ll meet people in the Esc community who share your enthusiasm for building a career outside the corporate mainstream and who will hopefully be able to help you on your way.
PS. Our Meetups are different from our Esc Wednesdays because they a) are free and b) don’t have a formal speaker. They are your opportunity to meet fellow Esc members in your city in a friendly and relaxed environment.
