Informal Weekly Networking Opportunities Offered in Auburn

The Urban Center for Innovative Partnerships (IPZ #15 Auburn) is offering a weekly social opportunity called 3 No Networking designed to cultivate interaction and networking opportunities for Auburn businesses and organizations.

“It’s a wide open forum that has no agenda, no set purpose and no cost to the attendees,” said Doug Lein, IPZ Administrator. “That’s why we gave it the whimsical name of 3 No Networking."

"Although it is an informal weekly gathering, it’s a powerful platform that can help form non-traditional business partnerships," said Auburn Mayor Pete Lewis. “You’d be amazed how much business you can do in an informal setting. We hope it will grow organically to be a valuable networking opportunity for all Auburn business sectors.”

Held each Thursday from 5-7 p.m. 3 No Networking will rotate between four Auburn establishments - Oddfellas Pub & Eatery on the first Thursday, Auburn Wine & Caviar Company on the second Thursday, Station Bistro on the third Thursday and Zola’s Café on the fourth Thursday. The summer schedule is as follows:

These events are made possible by a partnership between IPZ #15 Auburn, the City of Auburn Office of Economic Development, Auburn Area Chamber of Commerce and the Auburn Downtown Association. Thanks also to Oddfellas Pub & Eatery, Auburn Wine and Caviar Company, Station Bistro and Zola’s Café for agreeing to host the events.
