Networking In Style: The L7 Scene In Los Angeles
Over the past few months, I have attended a handful of networking events sponsored by The L7 Scene – a social and networking scene that brings young professionals together to experience what Los Angeles has to offer. The L7 cocktail networking mixers are always FREE! and are an excellent way for busy, working professionals to meet other professionals for social and business networking opportunities. I, along with my co-workers and friends, have been to a handful of these events located from Santa Monica to Westwood to Downtown L.A., and they are great! So great in fact, that I have forged genuine friendships and business opportunities. The L7 events are for singles, couples and groups of friends and the usual age range is thirties and forties. Be sure to visit their website for the latest events in the L.A. area!
Personally, I like the L7 events because the people are down to earth and the events are always held at aesthetically-pleasing venues. I’ve made great personal and business connections and I plan to continue to make more. Definitely worth checking out!
History of The L7 Scene
L7 began in September 2003 as a way for young professionals from a cross-section of industries to meet socially or for business networking opportunities. Each month L7 hosts between five and ten events including cocktail networking, dinner/ holiday parties, wine tasting, cooking classes, recreational events and restaurant launch parties. They also partner with museums, theaters, the philharmonic and other businesses to bring concerts, special events and sporting events.
“Many have told us our simple concept is exactly what they’re looking for. A wise L7 member was once quoted saying, “L7 brings together people, culture, aesthetics, music, restaurants and style without the usual LA attitude.” -Kathrin Nolan, Founders of L7
Kathrin Nolan is a native to So. Cal., serial entrepreneur and grunion hunter. Talking one day about the LA social scene, she and a friend took matters into their own hands and started organizing events to build a much needed sense of community in our beautiful city. How’s it going you ask? Come and see for yourself!
