offers anyone the chance to put together their own group based on any interest or niche, and single entrepreneurs have done just that.
For example, a meetup of Southern California-based single entrepreneurs was started three years ago by Gina Woodruff, 45, who owns AIM Living Services, a support service for adults with developmental and physical challenges.
"And as long as our average cost per site visitor stays below our average revenue per visitor, we're in good shape." Kurtz and his wife Claire, also an entrepreneur, live in Atlanta with their two cats.
When Connie Kelly's son David divorced in 2008 after a decade-long marriage, it sparked a business idea.
But Kelly didn't just set him up, she set up an entire business.
Her son did, in fact, meet a woman through the site and they have been dating for about a year."If one joins a meetup, he or she can regularly encounter some of the same people over time with no awkwardness of a blind date," Woodruff says."Relationships can develop more naturally," adds Dan Wright, a 30-something entrepreneur who attends a similar meetup in Orlando, Fla."It's a lot less stressful -- you're not on a date with anyone." Facebook also has pages devoted to single entrepreneurs, including one called -- simply -- Single Entrepreneurs."Although not single myself, it was clear that entrepreneurs who were single and looking just didn't have the time to dedicate to complicated registration processes, nor fool with the trivialities attached to the mainstream dating sites," he says."We wanted to create a reputable site for entrepreneurs -- and those interested in them." Today there are 160,000 members on Entrepreneur (not to be confused with Entrepreneur Dating.com, a newer site with about a 1,000 members whose owner declined to be interviewed).
