Top 15 virtual networking events for entrepreneurs you shouldn’t miss

June 03, 2020

Virtual networking events you shouldn't miss

Welcome to the summer of 2020 where virtual networking events are the new normal! 

The number of online networking events has grown exponentially since the beginning of the pandemic, almost at the same pace as the notorious virus. Yet somehow, it’s hard to find a virtual networking event for business owners and professionals that’s not a complete waste of time.

For that reason, we created a list of the best fifteen networking events online. And because networking is only effective if done regularly, we put the focus on weekly or monthly online networking events.
