SLO Chamber Membership Mixer

Morris & Garritano Insurance 1122 Laurel Lane, San Luis Obispo

Every month SLO Chamber members gather after hours to catch up, meet new members, do a bit of networking and get an inside glance at a local business. Membership Mixers happen on the third Wednesday of every month and provide an opportunity for members to get to know each other and share business contacts all in the friendly confines of a member business. A benefit to all Chamber members, these networking events provide the opportunity for the host to showcase their digs, show off what they do and maybe even boast a little about the services they offer. All members are welcome to invite a non-member as a one-time guest. The guest will be contacted at a later date about the benefits of a membership. Please see Mixer Guidelines for potential hosts.

An angel investor (also known as a private investor, seed investor or angel funder) is a high-net-worth individual who provides financial backing for small startups or entrepreneurs, typically in exchange for ownership equity in the company. While most people know AngelCon as a pitch competition that happens once a year; becoming an investor is a year-long training process that leads up to the main event.
