Fluffy salted pretzels and frosty fall season beer seized NGIN Workplace’sorganic kitchen last Wednesday night for our monthly NGINational Community Mixer. This month we (NGIN) featured Oktoberfest, dubbed the world’s largest funfair held annually in Munich, Germany from late September into early October.
To give our members and guests a vivid ambience of being at Oktoberfest, NGIN’s innovative kitchen was transformed from a tasteful bistro to Munich Plaza. Steaming sausages by the dozens were available to members and guests, along with an array of Oktoberfest beer bobbing in a metal tub of ice water. And for desert, piles and piles of soft carnival style pretzels to compliment the beer.
Once our members and guests had a bending plate of German food, iZotope, a company within our NGIN community, did a presentation for their new product RX4 and did a preview of their upcoming launch of Ozone 6. Along with their presentation there were a number of outside entrepreneurs who came to give a pitch about their product, idea or service. Once the pitches were over the music started playing and everyone did some casual networking, bouncing innovative ideas off one another.
Here at NGIN Workplace we believe that having monthly events offers laidback networking for our members and guests so that you’re not only making connections but also contacts. They are also an opportunity for members to invite their clients of other startups and entrepreneurs of the Boston area to come and network, pitch and get to know each other. By having these events we encourage you to form lasting relationships that will prove to be endlessly beneficial to your success. At NGIN we believe that collaboration is the key to successful innovation!
NGINational Community Mixers were created by Olga Akselord, COO, and Joan De Haene, Marketing Specialist at NGIN. Every third Wednesday of the month our mixer features a different international theme. We chose this theme because NGIN has a stand out international community of +21 nationalities working under one roof. By embracing different cultures it creates a more entertaining atmosphere, and also brings our international members back home to their original countries. Our diversity sets us apart from other coworking spaces. NGIN looks for members who vary in mindset, age, background, expertise and life experiences. We believe that this is the key to true innovation because with regular access to a network of diverse mindsets, you can increase the strength and capabilities of your company.
The monthly mixer’s started in April with Spain. Our past mixers include: Italy, Russia, United States (4th of July), Brazil (World Cup) and Mexico (Independence Day).
Come make a pitch, network and crack open a frosty beer at our next mixer in November and start your NGIN today!
