New speed dating event connects Asheville’s creative community

Press release from Mojo Coworking: 

If you’re a creative professional who recently moved to Asheville, you should continue reading. (Also, if you know a creative professional who now lives here, please share).

Beginning this September, Mojo Coworking will launch MOJO CONNECT: a series of speed “dating” events for Asheville’s creative community.  MOJO CONNECT isn’t about dating in the romantic sense – but dating as in ‘getting to know each’ other and incubating new, potentially groundbreaking ideas. Asheville’s thriving professional scene continues to grow at a rapid pace, and the influx of diverse creative professionals, including artists, designers, musicians, photographers, thinkers and innovators presents us with a timely and fun opportunity to create long-term, multi-disciplinary connections.

In addition to a high-energy general networking session, there will also be an organized process for attendees to meet each other one-on-one, or in small groups using the offices, desks, conference rooms and seating areas located throughout Mojo Coworking.

All proceeds from ticket sales will go the Mojo Foundation – a 501(c)(3) non-profit whose mission is to create positive change in the world through inspiration and education. Catering will be provided by The Blackbird Restaurant new chef-owner Mike Report.

Hi-Wire Brewing will provide their delicious Hi-Pitch IPAs and Lager.

Each MOJO CONNECT event will be limited to 30 creative professionals so that we can maintain a better sense of intimacy and true engagement. If you aren’t able to access tickets for the September event, don’t worry … we’ll be hosting another in December.

The event runs Thursday, Sept. 5 from 6-9 p.m. at 60 N. Market St.
