What's the top thing you're hoping to get out of this Meetup?

Find interesting people doing needed, challenging things to build great companies around. Get finger on pulse of tech activity in town.

What's the best way to find more folks like you?

It's hard - we generally stay busily below the radar, and don't much like the self-promotion game. On the software/systems side, it's really tough, but on the hardware side, talking to some of the key semiconductor sales reps in town (e.g., Charlie King at BP(Intel) or Jim Veith at Avnet) could be one way to find out who's good and has built amazing stuff. Also, pay attention to the guys behind the scenes at multiple startups in town over the years. I've been involved in several now - NONE have failed because we couldn't get the technology to work (even in the real world), or because there wasn't a market. VCs do a fairly poor job of IDing and tracking local talent, especially on the tech side. Most of the best people in town are not on their radar. Call me if you really want to do do this kind of finding...

Just led zero-to-merger R&D of software & hardware for SaaS cloud-based big-data collection (including new kind of wireless network), analysis, and fault visualization system for an AV-funded startup. Now looking for next opportunity - see LinkedIn.

What Dub D. is saying about this Meetup Group

Interesting lineup of companies. In some ways, these were better quality presentations than at the Cofounders Wanted meetings.
