This is not your typical networking event.
Startup Climbing hosts events in Brooklyn's best climbing gym. We get sweaty, we make friends, and we learn from incredible entrepreneurs.
You don't have to be a good climber to come. In fact, this can be your first time doing anything athletic in a long time. We'll help you get started and you'll meet some cool people in the process.
This month we're climbing with Jon Chang, marketer and maker at Makerbot.
- 7:00pm - 8:30pm - Indoor rock climbing. All levels of climbing experience welcome!
- 8:45pm - 9:30pm - Jon Chang talks marketing while wearing climbing shoes.
- 9:30pm - 11:00pm - 2-for-1 beers at Sheep Station
Jon Chang is a digital marketer, teacher, maker, and journalist. He currently leads social media marketing at MakerBot Industries, instructs General Assembly's part-time digital marketing business course, and teaches marketing to high school students at Explo at Yale University to train the next generation of Internet marketers.
Jon will share his unique approach to digital marketing, and how he merges analytics and brand management to achieve surging awareness for Makerbot.
Some Frequently Asked Questions
What is this event?
You can think of it as the coolest event you've ever been to. We go rock climbing, we hang out, learn something cool, and all grab beers afterwards.
What should I wear?
Something athletic. Shorts, t-shirts, yoga pants, etc. It's possible to climb in jeans if you need to. Basically just don't wear a suit.
The gym will provide you with special climbing shoes, so don't worry about packing extra sneakers.
What if I don't know anyone there?
Climbers are extraordinarily friendly. We've had people come to our event for the very first time and feel like they found a new family when they left. Don't sweat it. We're all struggling on the wall together.
What if I can't make it?
We hold events every month, so just catch the next one. If you've bought a ticket and can't make it just reach out to us. We can transfer it to the next event or give you a refund.
