Thursday September 19, 6:00pm at Oheka Castle.

Long Island entrepreneurs, real estate professionals, wellness and fitness professionals, investors, business owners, and start-ups with a passion for technology, and a growth-mindset.

Not just another networking event.

PLATINUM is not a played out happy hour like some networking parties. PLATINUM hosts a variety of events throughout the year including socials, and other activities. Events offer more than just a buzz and business card, they are a think tank for greatness. Guests participate in meaningful conversations and leave with valuable experience and key contacts. The networking events are held at some of Long Island’s most upscale venues and typically include open-bar, and featured speaker(s).


Passion is the singular trait that differentiates winners. Not only does it carry you through your successes, it also pulls you through the tough times. Even if you’re fighting an uphill battle, passion will keep you in love with what you do.  Fill your life with as many pleasures as you can. The life of engagement: where you find a life in your work, family, love and leisure — and the meaningful life: which “consists of knowing what your highest strengths are, and using them in the service of something larger than you are.


When you have passion around something, you’ll do whatever it takes to execute on it. You’ll work and grind away until you’ve squeezed every last bit of juice out of that ‘lemon.’ When you’re truly in that hustle, you are maximizing every last bit of energy you have in order to produce. Hustling is putting every minute and all your effort into achieving the goal at hand. It may not be ideal for most, but it’s what you signed up for, it’s what you love, and it’s what allows you to get the things done that you seek to accomplish.

Next event.
