Event Details

What better way to connect than by breaking bread (or naan)?

Asentiv has facilitated similar events all over the world with different themes. The common thread though is building relationships.

This is not your regular networking event – it’s an opportunity to grow relationships and build your network, through conversation and genuine connections.

The room will be full of great quality people. We keep numbers deliberately limited to make sure that happens. Table hosts will be there to keep the conversation going and make sure that everyone’s time is well spent.


What is Chaat?

Chaat is a mixture of delicious dishes from South Asia. Spiced but not too hot. If your palate prefers plainer food – we have that covered too.

Let us know if you have any dietary requirements and we’ll get them covered.

What kind of Chat?

This is about getting to know like minded business folks. Whether you’re a business owner, senior manager or in business development, the participants of Chat over Chaat™ all value business relationships and what they bring – both professionally and personally.

Why an Indian Restaurant?

Coming from Scotland, Indian food is ubiquitous. Yes, you can even get Haggis Pakora! The depth and range of choice is huge. When we landed in New York, the search began. We sought out the best restaurants in NYC to see if it was possible here.

In Scotland and the rest of the UK – Curry Clubs are standard as networking events. They are more relaxed business connection events.

And it’s spreading. We have a colleague from the UK who started a club in Cais Cais near Lisbon. It has 200+ members who have created a great business club. Why not NYC?


The Structure of the Evening

Informal & professional. Conversations are lightly guided. There is no pitching or selling. Do participants end up buying or working with each other? Of course they do.

It’s organic and real. It happens quickly when you get to know each other.

What time should I arrive?

The official time is 6pm-8pm.  However – and this is the strange thing for a networking event in NYC – at Chat over Chaat™, a large number of people arrive early and leave late!

That only happens when the conversation is good and the time is well spent.

Tell me more about the venue

Pondicheri is a genuinely incredible restaurant – the food, drinks and service are exceptional. We have a dedicated area in the restaurant (which is getting bigger!).

Pop in for a coffee if you want to check it out before.
