LinkCrofton & You
We’re not your run-of-the-mill networking group. Crofton is a small town. We’re all neighbors. A close-knit community. We want to build relationships that last, not just for networking success. LinkCrofton means no memberships… just a chance to share handshakes, opportunities, and ideas with your hometown neighbors.
If you have ever attended a LinkAnnapolis networking event, then LinkCrofton will feel very familiar. LinkCrofton has the same mission and values as LinkAnnapolis, and is excited to bring business professionals together in one of the main crossroads between Washington D.C, Annapolis, and Baltimore. Conveniently located between I-97 and I-50, Crofton boasts and array of great venues and is the home to many business people who rarely have the chance to mix and mingle in their own neighborhood.
LinkCrofton is run by Michael Carico, the President of AbleSpark, a local firm that focuses on leveraging web technologies to help businesses grow. Michael grew up in the Crofton area and is excited about bringing the “Link concept” to another familiar location

Past prizes have included a dinners for two, $50 Amazon gift cards, and tickets to the movies. Other than that, you’re on your own to meet your neighbors, make new contacts, and maximize business your opportunities.
When you walk in the door, we ask that you visit our registration table to simply check in, drop a card in the bowl for the drawing, and get a nametag. After that, you are free to socialize and form new friendships and business contacts!
Buy your own drinks, but appetizers are graciously provided by either our monthly sponsor or the venue host!
