You have stumbled on our little corner of the Internet - we have a so much time, so little to do - strike that, reverse it. Stick with us, and we'll make the future an awesome place to hang out. Learn more about Florida Creatives
Creating a community of Innovation. Creative professionals and hobbyists alike have been gathering every 3rd Monday of the month at rotating locations around Orlando since 2006, and we're not going to stop! Once a year we have an anniversary party in December, and in May we move our event over to Loch Haven Park for the Orlando Fringe Festival.
HealthCamp Florida is bringing together the amazing people that create The Remarkable Innovations that Are Transforming Health Care
Likemind is before work (8AM), it happens downtown, and everyone is welcome. Bring a few friends, get some coffee, and tell us what's on your mind. We've been having some healthy turnout in the past few months. If you're getting something out of this event, please invite some friends. Since Urban ReThink is open now, and the Virgin Olive Market is serving coffee and food, let's meet up in Thornton Park. Street parking is abundant, so I don't want to hear any parking complaints. Also, meeting in downtown is part of the spirit of this event. Groups in 60+ other cities all over the world will be getting together for conversations with their community - sure, they may not have 2+ years of these events behind them, but we do. More than 3 years ago, I heard about these two marketing guys / geeks from New York who had started an event they held on Friday mornings for coffee and conversation. The first few were just the two of them, but as they invited people and the word got out, it grew until it started getting on the radar all over the world. Now Likemind happens in scores of cities on every continent, and Orlando has been on that list almost since the beginning.
Join Orlando's longest-running creative meetup to celebrate our 5th year of bringing likeminded people together. You can get great benefits out of meeting new people, like stimulating your brain, having a safe (non-judgemental) place to talk shop, finding someone to help you build that next startup, or just making friends.
This month the fine Falcons from Thornton Park actually requested our presence. I think that might be the first time a venue reached out to us! This place has an art gallery vibe, and is in the best neighborhood (I think so, at least).
This month's happy hour is also just days after BarCamp Orlando, which got started at one of our original Likemind meetups back in the day!
Thanks to Barry Kirsch for our new promo picture!
