Anyone new to Zurich, Swiss and non-Swiss locals, solopreneurs or small business owners seeking advice for an idea or concept, the reason to share a cup of coffee with others and to chat is long. Attendees have also included visitors to the city on business or holiday, some seeking help for their trip and insider tips.

When did you start this last Wednesday coffee Meetup?
It started in 2009, has featured in-person and online (pandemic – until folk got Zoom tired so we took a break)
Why is it no-longer called a LinkedIn Local™ Zurich event?
LinkedIn Local™ is simply a free event and when LinkedIn removed many of the LinkedIn group communication tools in 2018, it lost its value, then the original founders of the concept in Australia moved on. Today people still use the LinkedIn Local™ Zurich or other city concept, any LinkedIn member can hold an event subject to adopting the guidelines set by LinkedIn. This is why so many are used by digital marketing companies to sell their services. Should you want to learn more about LinkedIn Local on LinkedIn
This use of the event type conflicts with this group being a platform for all, many marketing services or coach service offerings for example.
LinkedIn Local™ has a place but for a local networking group, our focus is not just about LinkedIn. It is about members and also those raising cash for cancer or sick children by running up a mountain 3 times, we focus on them. It is about them and their cause and the requests over the years have helped a good number of different members and charities or causes.
Not a “members only” event – why?
For reasons stated above and to give those in Zurich the opportunity to get to meet a few members and others, later we can talk about member benefits for them or their business. Member dues help us to cover our time, event room hire, food and keep the lights on and website working. Member only events are quite specific and many are only advertised to members only, we do that using member type only events in the events listing to ensure correct presentation and opportunity to attend with a guest.
