Form Relationships Built on Respect and Reciprocity
We are a Chicago area community of accomplished entrepreneurs – who want you to succeed. For real and not as an elevator. We have incredible affiliations and partnerships with other communities such as the Evanston & West Sub Chambers – and I was recently named the head of the Linked N Chicago Entrepreneurs Network – by Founders, Mary McFarlin and Bob Tricarico, who have built a community of 27,000 Chicago business members and growing strong.
Me (just in case you’re wondering)
I’m Lennie Rose and I started Big Ooga because wonderful, talented people needed to meet each other. AND because “networking” situations in networking clothes using networking words seemed far afield from forming genuine relationships. Big Ooga is filled with people brave enough to be themselves. Think of us as your business family – looking out for you, lifting you and helping you get found by others.
In my real family, I have raised successful children, was social chairman of my high school class, Ms. Congeniality in grade school and president of our investment club, which was named after my hair-do at the time – Beehive Investments. I have a head for business, a heart for people, a love of this country and treasure authenticity. That’s probably enough – but I want to throw in I read voraciously and make a mean martini.
Big Ooga Events – We Meet the First Tuesday of each month – which is Free to listing members
The community’s number one value is integrity and the ambiance of each event is hospitality and intelligence. We come together to give of ourselves and through giving we lift collectively. There is always an exciting program and this month Crain’s blogger, author and entrepreholic, Barry Moltz has cooked up an exercise to sharpen our entrepreneurial acuity.
