No matter what happens in the world – New York will remain a powerhouse. As such, any serious professional needs to include the city in his or her’s places to make connections. Despite its expense, NYC is filled with prospects for all entrepreneurs and small businesses. As one of the main epicenters of the universe – it presents unending opportunities for virtually every type of company.
Thankfully, there are many more ways to impress business owners. The New York state of mind is so fast forward that it can almost literally make your head spin. Virtually every major player comes to New York for one reason or another. So if you ever want to be one of those players, you have to find a way to be where the action is.
Personally, I like to make a long weekend of it to take advantage of the shows and other ongoings. It’s surprising whom you can meet along the way. These days, networking is really about socializing. While many people mistakenly think that means joining a bunch of social networks, it’s actually a lot more complex. Sure, Facebook and Twitter are important. But it’s just as important to meet folks in person. There’s nothing as effective as pressing the flesh when it comes to making business contacts. For instance, the entire New York tech community has some really great resources that are designed just for start-ups.
But how does a new business participate in all that the Big Apple has to offer? It’s not like new businesses have the money to spend courting folks with high end dinners and shows on Broadway. Quite the opposite. Speaking of Broadway, you can get a meeting room at the unheard of rate of around $15 an hour there. The same goes for a meeting room on Wall Street! So what are you waiting for? Book an inexpensive meeting room in NYC and get crackin’!
