THE (TRUE) story
It all started with the question: how do grown ass women make friends in New York?
We met online - through a story written about being newly transplants and finding other women who share the same quirks, mindset, and interests. Next thing you know, we all began stalking one another on social media and arranged a girl date.
It happened over drinks at Hotel Chantelle, where we all came together to share ideas on building a better and stronger sense of community.
Because we are very fortunate in our friendship, we wanted to create the same, but better opportunity for folks to make meaningful relationships in New York.
We are talking about genuine relationships and cnnektions.
this is thecnnekt.

Renée works as Brand Partnership Lead at thecnnekt. She began working with Chary and Emily after discovering their Instagram page at the beginning of 2018. She contacted them to see how she could help them grow their community and IRL event planning. One phone call and a short meeting later, she began helping the team plan their first event of the year. It was that simple. She had a desire to grow with a community and learn more about cnnetking authentic people in the city. What better way to help cnnekt genuine folks in the city than with thecnnekt?
