Where Can I Find: Networking Hangs


As part of the Newcomers Issue, City Pulse compiled several lists under the title “Where Can I Find…” These lists are meant as a brief guide for people unfamiliar with Lansing.

It’s not easy being the new kid in class, let alone an entrepreneur in new territory. The following list comprises event series, social scenes and organizations geared toward building community, skills and the local economy.

Lansing 5:01



Get out of the stale office lounge and hop on a zipline for the next company social. This networking event series keeps Lansing alive after 5 all summer long, attracting urban professionals to otherwise low-traffic areas such as partially vacant towers, alleys and underpasses.

Opportunity Arts




Mark and Danielle Marriott are arts promoters from New York City that ventured to Lansing to cultivate new talent. They started representing professional dance companies and later signed local poets, pubs and visual artists as affiliates. In addition to offering affordable services, the group hosts social events in efforts to connect creative people.

Lansing First Mid-Michigan



With the motto “It’s your capital. Keep it local,” this community works to educate entrepreneurs about the basics in running a successful business. From employee benefits to mindfulness exercises, this growing network aims to assist in building a sustainable homegrown economy.

Suits and the City



Lansing’s premier LGBTQ networking group, which meets the first Wednesday of the month at various locations, strives to build connections between business owners across mid-Michigan through events and information. The group aims to promote LGBTQ businesses which include those who identify as questioning, intersex, androgynous, asexual, pansexual, polyamorous, kink or a straight ally.
