About this event: On the last Thursday of every month, we (along with Nautilusnet.com and the Fremont Chamber of Commerce) host a meetup for all varieties of geeks and techies. You don’t have to live or work in Fremont to join us! There’s always lots of great food and beer, and it’s a low-key chance to chat with fellow geeks, do some business networking, and generally just hang out.
Average size: 25-40+

Seattle Business Networking Events will stem from Renton up to Lynnwood/Everett and are some of the best events around and include Chamber of Commerce events, private workshop and networking events, paid and non-paid events. Use the links to each event to find out more info or to register.
