Hi 106ers!

On this, our second journey into the OC, 106 Miles Southern California Chapter is collaborating with Tech Coast Angels (TCA), K5 Launch, Tech Coast Venture Network (TCVN) and OC Hackerz for OC's very first Meetup Mashup.

Tech Coast Angels is actively seeking great startups to fund. Providing more than just money, TCA brings connections, knowledge, mentoring and operational assistance to bold early-stage entrepreneurs with game-changing ideas.

K5 invests, and accelerates game-changing, early stage, technology driven businesses led by visionary founders. K5 is accepting applications for their Summer class so come and meet them.

TCVN's wide variety of forums, pitch sessions, workshops, and other networking events, brings together entrepreneurs and resources from every facet of the technology and startup landscape.

OCHackerz is a human institution designed to create new products or services under conditions of extreme uncertainty.

Come mingle with these great groups, exceptional founders, engineers and engineer friendly startup folks at Posch Restaurant on Thursday May 17th, 2012.

Come meet someone new, and enjoy a drink or two.

Haiku: This meetup is free / to attend. Buy your own drinks, / and drinks for a friend... :)

    This was my second time and I enjoyed this one way more than the first one. We were allowed to spread out. The first event had us packed into a back room and the volume of people speaking made it hard to have a conversation. This one was perfect.

    Venue was too small which led to a room too hot for comfort. It felt like the bar scene when I was single. It was impossible to identify “angel investors” which was the meetup’s objective. Our firm seeks great IT startups with products ready for market. In summary, not a meetup I would attend again unless changes were made. I did like the separate room, but it was on the opposite side of where I ended up having conversations (close to the bar).
    Larger venue with expansion outdoors or adequate HVAC.
    Name tags like Firsty - to identify investors, entrepreneurs, service providers, etc.

    Well attended and I met many interested and energized folks. There are a few opportunities I gained to do some business as well.

    The venue was great, the "speakers" very informational, the overall attendance and meetup were great! The mix of the different groups was perfect and made for a great mix of people. I plan on highly recommending to others!

    Awesome! Warm welcome to the newest 106ers.
    So, looks like 106ers coming from all directions - LA, the Inland Empire and as far down as San Diego. Feel free to post your carpool / rideshare intentions here. Great way to make new friends and to make the drive enjoyable.
