BASHH started over a decade ago, and to many in town, it is more than a networking event, it’s home.
That sounds lame, but it’s true. It’s an event that many people have made the only thing they ever go to (because let’s face it, adulting is hard).
And every month, there are many new people that are welcomed into the mix, because at heart, we’re all just glorified children that are expected to do adult things like network, so why not do it in a place that’s not intimidating, not fake, and everyone else is secretly feeling at least a little nervous (or maybe that’s just me).
I’ve met people at BASHH that have entered my very tiny inner circle of friends, others have been insanely helpful to the growth of our company through their advice, and I’ve seen several companies start on a napkin at our events. Marriages and babies (some on purpose, others not so much) have resulted from BASHH. Funding has happened because of BASHH. Commiserating during chemo has happened because of BASHH.
There are no cliques. Just a bar full of people that are there to meet other non-robot humans that won’t throw business cards at you like a lame Chinese fighting star.
Humans first, business second. It’s the most simple recipe of all time.
And we invite you to join us at the next Big Ass Social Happy Hour!
