Whether it's in the depths of Silicon Valley, streets of Copenhagen or the alleyways of Melbourne - millennials over the last half-decade have transformed traditional networking and social events entirely.
With a global trend of innovation and enterprise on the rise, millennials have taken to their respective ventures and now often meet up with friends to discuss business, or a combination of business and social events.
Alongside this networking/social event switch, millennials are often embracing entrepreneurship like second nature. Speaking with a group of millennial entrepreneurs today I felt that they all knew more about each others' businesses over anything else. They also allowed me to accept that times have changed, things have altered since the late 2000s and flatter organisational structures in today's corporate landscape have neat that a liberal, modern and 'fresh' outlook is apparently the only way to go...
"Yeah we love it, and most of the time we just chat to each other and give each other tips along the way".
Coming from a bedroom business background myself, it's attractive to accept that such openness is in today's corporate environment (not including competitors). I definitely noticed the strongly accepted view that assistance and encouragement between ventures trumps individual successes as an entrepreneur.
The only thing I questioned was; 'where next?' If we are so open in today's market, where will corporate culture and OD be heading within the future? I'd love to hear from you in the comments below.
