With social networks like Facebook and Twitter reshaping the way people connect worldwide, it was only a matter of time before someone created a forum especially for seasoned and budding entrepreneurs. Witness the recent public launch of EntrepreMingle.com, a new social platform that its founders hope will "disrupt the status quo of the business world"-in a good way, of course.
Sure, promoting the site as being solely for entrepreneurs might sound like a thinly veiled attempt at exclusivity, but it's not. The company recognizes that, by its very definition, the word entrepreneur is broad in scope and applies to virtually anyone-from the eight-year-old girl selling lemonade for 25 cents on her front lawn to the most seasoned professional who has started and assisted in the development of dozens of companies. In fact, according to EntrepreMingle.com in a recent statement, "the conclusion can be drawn that everyone is a potential entrepreneur."
That's why EntrepreMingle.com's goal is to provide a networking opportunity for anyone and everyone who is entrepreneurially inclined so they can find just what they need given their own individual needs and aspirations. The company provides the following illustrated scenario as an example of just how easy it is to use this new platform to its fullest potential:
Summing it all up nicely, company owner Mike Templeman had this to say about the launch of his new venture:
"(EntrepreMingle.com) doesn't have to necessarily replace the networking lunches and corporate events. It can work in concert with them," he says. "Think of how powerful those events can become when the attendees are meeting online first. They're learning each other's skills and interests before they ever attend the event. That way, there's no chilly reception. The ice is broken. These entrepreneurs are hitting the ground running."
With EntrepreMingle.com, the possibilities are endless, so why not take a moment to check it out.
