The Sumeria Group Mission
Sumeria Group is membership based social discovery platform that gives young professionals access to selective, high quality social events hosted by its partners. Sumeria’s partners include charities, startups, bars, event venues, alumni organizations, and other community groups. The social event offerings typically include happy hours, wine tastings, group dinners, sporting events, recreational events, and formals/galas.
Since 2012, over 30,000 young professionals have used Sumeria to attend events working with over 100 partners. Our dedicated social mission focus has also helped our nonprofit partners raise over $250,000.
Sumeria is based in New York City and active in Boston, Washington DC, Chicago, Philadelphia, and San Francisco. In 2014, Sumeria plans to offer events in LA, Austin, Houston, and Denver.
Our initiatives nationwide have taken off among the young professional community. Each initiative we oversee is on behalf of nonprofits around the country, but also has its social perks and opportunities too.
With over 2,500 members, Sumeria is a fast-growing network of socially conscious individuals committed to giving back to their communities.
Since its founding in 2011, Sumeria has created partnerships with over 10 non-profit organizations, worked with 20 corporate brands across various industries, and raised over $150,000 from our fundraising events. Additionally, our volunteer programs have totaled over 100 young professionals to date.
Sumeria has current initiatives in New York City and Boston, with new initiatives launching this fall in San Francisco, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.
Our team is made up of ex-finance professionals and startup gurus.
Life at Sumeria Group
The work environment is maximum exposure, laid back dress-wise but intensity work-wise. We huddle up in a NYC accelerator space and get our work done as a team. There's plenty of responsibility to pass around, so if you're hungry and want to have fun, this is an awesome opportunity!
