Post 101st Bangalore meetup on 12th October, we have had a quite November (there was definitely a lot of action on our online group) and now before signing off the year and entering the new year, with new energy, renewed confidence and aspirations for the coming year, we thought of what better way than getting together and knowing each other more, figuring out areas of collaboration and growing together. In that spirit, we would like to announce the upcoming 102nd OCC Bangalore Meetup.
On Saturday, 21st December 2013, OCC Bangalore will be hosting its 102nd meetup. This is a generic meet with a slight bent towards e-commerce. The theme of the generic meetup is around “You”, the member of the community. Generic meets are pure networking meets with an agenda around “hey i can help you with this” and ” hey i am looking for a help on this… “.

So we are now done with the 101st OCC Bangalore meet. Even though it was a long weekend, we had a gathering of 35 members turning up for the event. It was a “generic meet”, which means there was no agenda and the entire agenda or discussion was a result of the introduction / pitch made by the member. Overall it was a great meet with lots to learn and connect with the old and new members of the group.
Entrepreneurs from various industry segments were part of the meet. To name some of these segments we had representation from Social Media, Brand Advertising, Travel Experience, Accounting, Business Card and Relationship Management, Finishing Schools for Engineering Grads, Recruitment, Business and Financial Consultants, India’s first Luxury Auto Rickshaw (The Rick), Mobile and Software Development Services, Clean Tech, eCommerce (co-operative loyalty), Retail (brick and mortar).
