A subsidiary of Aspen Real Life, Aspen’s lifestyle blog and community supported digital marketing media outlet, Aspen Business Connect is a multi-generational community-based networking forum where business professionals connect monthly to listen to inspiring stories and deepen business relations.
At each event, three carefully chosen business professionals with relatable topics of interest are paired together to share their stories in a presentation with a moderator. At the beginning and end of the evening, guests are encouraged to mingle and connect.
