Pasadena Demos and Cocktails: Fall Edition

This time we're bringing the party back to Pasadena.  C'mon down and mix it up with geeks and entrepreneurs, and enjoy a drink and appetizers.

Our typical meetup format is:

  • Drop in anytime between 7:00pm and 10:30-ish
  • Locate the 106 Miles sign-in table and grab yourself a name tag, write what you are looking for (if anything)
  • Chat, pitch, problem-solve and geek out.
  • There are will be up to 4 formal presentations on the cabana.

Our demo presenters include:

    It was a pleasure speaking to some of you! Unfortunately, I had to leave early so I didn't get to meet most of you. I wanted to post this recap and open up an offline conversation with any party that may be interested.

    I am seeking a tech Co-Founder (CTO) for my music tech startup, ChazBo Music.

    Our target customers are Content Owners (record labels and indie artists) and Business Subscribers (retailers, restaurants, coffee shops, schools, etc.).

    The primary purpose a Content Owner should use ChazBo Music is to generate exposure of their musical content to our growing captive audience of business patrons, event attendees, students and university guests, and online viewers. Business Subscribers should use ChazBo Music to display on-screen music-related content while powering background and foreground music in their establishments.

    Today is Day 72 of beta and we have 150 business subscriber locations contracted and nearly 300 content owners in 6 countries.

      To add to this, we are in beta (and growing) with a FUNCTIONAL PROTOTYPE representing about 60% of the the vision. However, I am limited in my scope due to the fact that I am a hustler and not a hacker. As a non-technical person, I've built everything you can see at with non-proprietary 3rd-party solutions including the website itself, the web platform content owners use to submit, schedule, and distribute content and manage campaigns, and the actual music channels currently live in 30 stores in SoCal (here's a demo: http://www.chazbomusi...­). I cannot build mobile apps. My technical co-founder will need to be able to build a mobile app with multimedia and in-app transactions functionality (among other social media and data-mining functionality).
