I think that the last meetup worked well because it was a small group and everyone openly shared their backgrounds and ideas for their next venture.
For the next meetup, let's put a little bit more structure around the conversation.
The goal is still to meet other Filipinos and Filipino-Americans in tech startups. However, please be prepared to share:
- More about you as a person!
- What startup you are working on / thinking about starting / or would like to ideally join.
- Current challenges and what you have done to try to overcome these obstacles
What I learned from our last meetup is that everyone has such rich, varied experiences and is very willing to share their thoughts, contacts, and other resources.
Our next meetup will be all about comparing notes and learning from others' (especially from mistakes). We can brainstorm and exchange ideas to overcome obstacles.
The goal is to walk away from the meetup with action items to continue to grow your existing business or start your idea.
I really hope to see you there!
