Company Summary

NetworkingPhoenix is a data-driven, hyper-local networking tool and lead discovery platform. Currently, we have 27,000+ members. These business professionals, networkers, service providers and job seekers visit our website to find networking events. We are an intersection of a local “LinkedIn” and a curated “meetup.com,” but treat in-person events, instead of profiles, as our primary focus and resource.
