Pintxo: Monthly Business & Creativity Showcase, Networking Event Series, Cross Mentorship Program, and Online Community

Pintxos (or Pinchos): Of Spanish or Basque origin, Pintxos are usually eaten in bars or taverns as a small snack while hanging out with friends or relatives; thus, they have a strong socializing component, and in the Basque country and Navarre, they are usually regarded as a cornerstone of local culture and society. (Wikipedia)

The concept behind Pintxo events is to offer a taste of what the community has to offer professionally and creatively, to share and celebrate the spirit of what drives and carries us in our daily lives, and to understand and accentuate how our personal or group mission connects us with the local community, culture and society.

In recognition that innovation is going to be the driving and distinguishing factor that will allow small businesses and entrepreneurs to achieve success in our future economy, these events will also feature a theme of innovation and mentorship. It will encourage a dialogue of innovation, encourage the question of how can we push our businesses and ourselves to be more innovative in our thinking and our offerings, and will support mutual cross mentorship as people strive to achieve success in their professional path.

The events are meant to be intimate and offer genuine opportunity for connection. Each one will vary, and may include a business showcase, short talk on a particular subject, art showing, music performance, a screening, a pop-up store, a food demonstration or one of many other things. Some may also serve as fundraising platforms, as long as they are approved in advance by the board. We encourage your suggestions in general. The event will be an opportunity to network with your community and see what each other has to offer, and to raise awareness and help our fellow peers.
