Our First Community Happy Hour
We’ve been wanting to do a community happy hour since we started to see Croissant really take off. Because like the eponymous pastry on our app, there are so many layers and flavors to our Croissant Community: with freelancers, developers, entrepreneurs, side hustlers, and then some, we could see that we had tons of hardworking individuals scattered around the city, doing everything from tech, human resources, to finance. And we were still growing.
Not only that, but you spoke up. You wanted more chances to meet socially, you wanted to be able to know more people in your favorite spaces, you wanted to network and learn more about other businesses. So as far as we knew, it was now or never. We partnered with coworking space Rise, made a menu of tasty pizzas and libations, and got the word out to the community.
And you guys certainly stepped up. About 40 Croissants came! And we couldn’t help but feel that type of glee reserved for a block of smiling face emojis. We had the best time meeting each of you and, well, relaxing. As fellow working nomads, we see Croissant members as our “coworkers,” so to speak, and we were more than happy to spend some quality down time with each other.
Couldn’t make it? Here’s a peek at all the fun, and don’t forget to stay tuned for the next one on Thursday, July 20, 2017 at Galvanize from 6-8PM. We hope to see you there.
