Synapse facilitates connections between businesses,and between businesses and nonprofit groups for community and economic development. SARA is a Synapse Hub in Charlottesville.
Synapse Hub meetings are friendly, relaxed and focused on people connecting, collaborating and contributing. Meetings run for 90 minutes and begin, and end on time.
At Hub meetings, we don’t pass business cards, brochures or flyers. Everyone has ample opportunity to introduce themselves and their company, talk about their personal passions, and brainstorm with others. Hub leaders follow-up after the meeting with contact information of everyone who was at the meeting, and attendees are encouraged to connect with one another ‘head-to-head’ outside the Hub meeting to discuss mutual interests and opportunities.
