Veeky Forums meetup

We should have a meet up to discuss all things financial. I suggest New York City as our meeting place, given that it is the financial epicenter of the world. How many of you would be able to attend hypothetically?

Op here. Minimum age requirement would be 21. Business casual clothes. Location could be the financial district, by the George Washington statue. Possible topics of discussion include securities, business ventures, world events, growth opportunities, etc.

It would be legitimately and unironically stupid not to attend something like this.

I would happily fly over to a meeting in NYC from Canada for a Veeky Forums meetup. Anyone who thinks or says they wouldn't is either incredibly unintelligent and unaware or just hasn't given the significance of that idea enough thought.

Let that really sink in for a moment until you 'get' it, and then thank me for reminding you what a seriously incredible opportunity that would be.

I have a feeling that many of us would be looking back on such an event for the rest of our lives.

All you "business casual and age 21+ requirement" assholes suck, if you want the meet to be cool then it should be: 18+, Trump Tower fountain, commodities, currencies and stocks, shirt and shoes required, drinks on the minors for a 1-1 exchange. Now that's good business.

It's too bad you suckers are way too fucked for this to be done right. It could have been the ultimate opportunity for you plebs and it would have only taken 1 thread a day for a week to work out the details and make it huge. We could have literally made a hedge fund out of the lot of us.

It's a shame the losers make the only decent choice for me to go cabal gangster.

@Skullbone
Give a good reason why under 21s should be allowed. They can't drink, smoke, and tend to still act like teenagers. Trump Tower is a possible alternative.

Have local 'chapters' or meetups.

This would have had potential if it was some underground forum where you had to prove yourself before you were allowed to post, ensuring economically illiterate plebs were sorted out in the process.

Here, it's an influx of /pol/acks and /sci/entists who haven't the first clue of economy works, let alone which securities and other business ventures are profitable. 4chan's advantage is your meeting's disadvantage - anonymity. Too bad OP, it's a great idea, with literate people.

Easy solution:
Post timestamped photo of bank, investment account with a legitimate investment balance or post photo of your Bloomberg terminal or your trading/sales desk.

And include your city and a throwaway email

OP here. Here's what I propose:

You have to be at least 21 years old.
Casual dress is fine as long as you don't look autistic.
Meetup location inside the Starbucks of Trump Tower.
This shouldn't be a richfag investment banker only meetup. As long as you have a useful skill (programming, sales, entrepreneurship, etc.) you should come. We need rookies and pros alike.
We can setup a basic governance and create slots for each type of /biz/nessman (rookie, intermediate, pro) with limited space.
We also need an event program to have an outline of the topics to be discussed. We could also have speakers if anyone here wants to showcase their ideas/projects and get feedback.

That automatically breaks rule 1 of having a successful business - entering a market with no barrier to entry.

at least do a bar or a pub so we can weed out the <21 crowd.

Second this.

I have been to both cities and Vegas is definitely better.

Plus Vegas, while it doesn't have Wall Street, is a much better representation of capitalism and the prosperity it brings.

Just stay away from the black and Mexican parts of town. Prosperity tends to attract bottom-feeding criminals and human garbage.

Anyway.

You guys are taking this too seriously. Just set up a meeting at a bar in NYC one evening. People can meet, hang out for a couple hours, and exchange business ideas, knowledge, and cards. Good starting point for everybody. Also if you tell the bar ahead of time, they'll set up a little area and maybe even provide a few appetizers for free.

I'm out.
I'm an entrepreneur, I don't know half of that shit.
I study what is relevant at the time.

Protip: most very successful entrepreneurs are more ballsy and creative and wiley, than 'educated' or 'smart'. Very, very few have MBA's - those goys go the corporate or consulting route.

Source - almost every story of every very successful entrepreneur ever.

What people miss, is that entrepreneurs, like me, achieve success not because of their qualifications or vast knowledge, but because of maybe a handful of good ideas or skills and persistence.

They also try harder precisely because they are either natural experimenters, and can't coast by, because they are too young or have shitty resumes, so many would be unemployable.

There is a video on YouTube of Richard Branson struggling to explain the difference between gross and net income, which he failed at explaining. He says he gets the two confused often, which annoys his CFO.

Anyone under 25 is literally clueless about life because they have no life experience, they have usually been in education and usually low level work for a few years and that is it, wait until you're 25 and see how much smarter you are then when you where 18. Plus 18 year olds are usually cringe worthy try hard faggots

It's supposed to be an informal 'meetup', not the bizreali corporation inaugural meeting.

Autistic details being discussed is getting peeps nowhere.

@King_Martha
Maybe. The only people who have the balls to show are those who can actually flex in front of others.
Within 5 minutes the meetup will spit into the real /biz/nessmen and the wannabes, unless you guys are too nice irl to blow off the neets. I know I couldn't call you guys cucks to your faces even though I'm 6'1 and buff enough to pick a fight.

Skullbone

@likme
Hence having it at a bar where it will filter out the <21 NEETs and trolls.

Fuck being inclusive. I'm inclined tomeet at high end whiskey bars like the Brandy Library or Campbell Apt just to weed out the autist types who can't do $25 a glass scotch/bourbons
