Coffee & Conversation


Saturday, December 30, 2017

10AM-1PM (drop in any time)
Coffee provided!

We have almost completed yet another trip around the sun. Before we wrap this one up, I’d like to invite you to one last round of Coffee & Conversation. I know 2017 was quite eventful for many of us, so I offer this time to reflect on the past year in the company of passionate people who have been out there bringing their dreams to life.

This month we will be hosted by the Bulgarian Community Center. C&C member Rossi Mel’s family are the owners of the space, which has served as the hub for the Bulgarian community in Chicago since 1997. Throughout its storied history, the center has been actively engaged in honoring and preserving Bulgarian culture through initiatives such as running a weekly radio broadcast and featuring prominent Bulgarian artists work in their space.

Rossi will also be this month’s showcased speaker. She has been actively involved in developing a “circling” community here in Chicago, a spiritual practice that helps people develop meaningful connections with others. She currently runs Authentic Chicago and will be sharing with us her story of how she was inspired by circling.

Because it’s the holidays, I anticipate we will be having a smaller group this time around, which is fitting with this month’s theme. I want this to be an opportunity to us to bond in a more intimate setting, to discuss how our spiritual, religious, or mindful practices inform our creative endeavors, and to share our hopes for the year to come. Join us for a relaxing cup of coffee and end 2017 on a high note!

Here’s a summary of this month’s C&C:

Coffee & Conversation is a Chicago-based community of entrepreneurs and innovators who value collaboration and share ideas, resources, and inspiration. We can be anywhere along the start-up spectrum whether you just have ideas to share, are about to start a business, or already have your own company. Even if you don’t have your own business and just like sharing ideas, there are takeaways and great connections for everyone.

C&C holds free, public gatherings monthly on Saturday mornings, open to all! Attendees are welcome to work, talk, and socialize as much as they see fitting. Come connect over a cup of coffee and join a community of motivated people determined to hustle for their passions.
