How we're different

The Shrimp Society is a local and central entrepreneur hub where you can establish, network, & contribute to your community in a tangible way.

Right now, building a community is all over the place - Linkedin, Twitter, email, Slack, Clubhouse - It's a mess. 

LinkedIn is too general - "Nice post  👍🏻" from a sales person in Virginia isn't helping me.


Twitter is too fleeting - its great for in the moment news, but difficult to have extended engagement on topics.

Facebook is too lame? - 😬There, we said it.

Instagram is too personal - It's OK not to mix personal & professional.

Slack is too boring - we look at it all day anyways.

Clubhouse is too intangible - If you missed the session, you missed all the value.

The Shrimp Society isn't trying to replace those platforms for what they are.


Instead, we are on a mission to provide a local platform for the community, by the community.
