History

Bad A$$ Networking was founded in June 2015 when founder Freddy Ewan decided to plan an event that primarily focused on entertainment, nightlife, and ambiance instead of thirty-second commercials and hopelessly handing out business cards. Freddy held his first event in November of that year in the hopes that 40 people would show up. Within an hour of the event, the small club had over 100 business owners! It was such a success that people had to be turned away at the door. Bad A$$ Networking instantly became an overnight sensation. Since then, the size of the events has grown and grown. Affordable vendor tables have been added, beautiful venues have been booked, and swarms of networkers keep marking their calendars for the next Bad A$$ Event!     

In June of 2016, Alexis Keller, a financial advisor, attended her first BAN event and was blown away by the excitement of the evening. Two days later she received a phone call from Freddy Ewan. Over lunch the next day, Alexis joined Bad A$$ Networking. Alexis quickly brought Bad A$$ Networking to an entirely different level and shortly after her emergence, she became the CEO and headstone of the organization. Many networkers consider Freddy and Alexis, “The Dream Team” when it comes to putting together business networking events. Their coordination, precision, and attention to detail create not just a business networking event, but an experience that one never forgets.
