He tried to set up a meeting. I agreed to meet entrepreneur to entrepreneur, but that I had no interest in joining the team. He agreed. I am planning on taking the opportunity to learn more about him and offer him some of my freelance services that I feel could benefit his endeavors.

As the saying goes..."Your network determines your net worth."
Even if there is not a business relationship to be had from this meeting, you both will have a greater awareness of one another's businesses. This provides opportunities for referrals and the possibility of later joint ventures.
Aside from that, you are likely to benefit from the unique insights and experiences that are shared by this individual.
