The Everything Marketplaces community has quickly grown to 2,000+ marketplace founders, teams, & leaders. With the growth of the community, we've been focused on creating stronger connections with founders in the community. This is one of the reasons why you'll notice that we've started doing meetups in cities like San Francisco more regularly, which also helps bring together and build up the local marketplace startup community.
We recently held a community & marketplace meetup on 11/9 in San Francisco, which was at Lightspeed. We had a really great turnout with 50+ marketplace founders, along with teams & leads from marketplaces like Airbnb, Turo, Flexport, thredUP, and more join. It was one of our smaller, more casual meetups, where we all had a chance to meet and have a fun evening chatting about marketplaces. We shared a recap post with 50+ pictures in the community that you can see here. We wanted to share more about it on our blog to help highlight some of our founders from San Francisco.
Here's a few pictures from the meetup:
A big thanks again to our past group chat guest Sydney Sykes and the Lightspeed team for hosting our meetup at their office. You can see the recording from Sydney's group chat with us here and also connect with her in the community.
You can also connect with founders in cities like Los Angeles, New York City, London, & more in our meetups spaces that we have in the community. You can find all of our upcoming meetups on our community calendar.
