What is Meetup?

Meetup is the world's largest network of self-organized clubs and community groups. Meetup makes it easy for anyone to organize a local group or find one of the thousands already meeting up face-to-face. More than 2,000 groups get together in local communities each day, each one with the goal of improving themselves or their communities.

Key Statistics:

• 4.6 Million Monthly Visitors
• 3.9 Million Registered Users
• 80,000 Meetings monthly
• 37,000 Local Groups
• 3,500 Topics & Interests
• 4,000 Cities

Why should I use Meetup?

Meetups are real people, with real connections, forming real communities making a real impact. Meetup is not about virtual
relationships, but face-to-face, honest-to-goodness interaction between neighbors.

It is a great way to meet other entrepreneurs or thought leaders, form partnerships,  share ideas or get referrals.

Below is a slide put together by David Cesarini that outlines other aspects of Meetup for financial advisors.
