active productive fun


Manyatta is a Maasai word for settlement or compound, often temporary, established by a family or clan, or as an encampment of young warriors. Are we all Maasai warriors trying to build huts forming a unit within a common fence? No. But we do embrace the culture of mobility, dexterity and community that Manyatta entails and so should you.

COMMUNITY CALENDAR


COMMUNITY CALENDAR


We encourage you to seek opportunities to meet people outside your usual circle or opportunities that align with your relationship building goals.

This isn’t to say that our crowd is unpleasant, but you’ve absolutely got to get out and diversify your network. Can't get out to one of our events or want to do more? Try volunteering in the community, joining an industry specific board, meeting entrepreneurs on their own turf or attending a conference or another events. Find out what you have in common with these strangers by researching the guest list ahead of time. This will help you start a conversation, and build a relationship that’ll give you access to information. Here's a listing of other events happening in the community.
