    Although a very one-sided event (i.e. lots of entrepreneurs/startups looking for co-founders but very few people looking to join them) it was still worthwhile as made some interesting and potentially very useful new contacts and the overall quality of the attendees was excellent.
    One down-side was that the noise level became very loud and at times I found myself struggling to hear and be heard above the hubbub.

    Also thanks to Sean for pulling this together, sounds like we have plenty of ideas to make the next one even better!!

    April 11, 2014

  • Simon W.

    Would say it was good speaking to different people and sharing ideas. But agree, not enough technical skills set. I think the technical skills are out there and as Nimesh suggested it might be a matter of PR to attract them to such events.

  • Nimesh

    It was great to meet lots of interesting people, but we need a lot more people who are LOOKING to join a startup. Obviously a lot are seeking CTOs. I believe a fundamental step is to get PRESS coverage in the mainstream (eg. Metro/Evening Standard etc) that says "Bored of your job, why not join a startup in the burgeoning Tech City?” or similar. With the tech buzz firmly in public view now, should be easy.

    It's easy to attract founders to these events because we are all signed up to the same newsletters from Campus London etc., but this article would really bring the Technical/Business/Marketing professionals that would make great co-founders, into our Startup world.

    It was easy to talk to people, everyone was approachable and high calibre. But different formats like speed dating with 1-2 minute rotations would be even more constructive.

    Cheers and good luck all!

    Thats exactly why I set-up Innovify to help all the entrepreneurs convert their blueprint as a real product. Anyone serious about making your idea to reality or taking it to the next level, do get in touch and I would love to help...

    April 11, 2014

  • Yinka M.

    I agree. Interesting if you are just looking to generally network, but if the purpose is to 'match' then it needs to be organised with a more strategic view to having as close to equal numbers of searchers to joiners as possible otherwise the value becomes limiting. Perhaps think about tuning it into an actual 'speed matching' type affair (like speed dating).

    April 11, 2014

  • Nyron G.

    Pretty good meetup. I think worth it for the interactions and networking. Maybe treat this like a dating event? Have two set of invites; one for founders looking for techies/marketers and one for techies/marketers looking for founders. A 50/50 mix would be good...

    I'm lucky enough to have found my technical founder a few months ago and I'm happy to share my journey with you girls and guys. For now, LEARN TO CODE! Codeschool and Code Cademy, good luck!

  • Seth G.

    Although yesterday was a pretty stealth visit for Channll.com I still had a few very interesting conversations.

    April 11, 2014

  • Prash

    A quick scan of the attendees on Meetup.com showed it was going to be a very uneven mix, so I didn't attend as I'm looking for a tech co-founder. Unfortunately this is now typical at these types of events. Boris, if you're listening, get some more talented techies here if you want London to be the undoubted tech capital of Europe!

    April 11, 2014

  • Leonardo Z.

    "Talk to everybody for max 1 min" does not work if not structured (tables? a gong every minute?) and turns out in a normal networking event.

    Great to meet those that I had time to meet. [Note to self: drink more water, throat feels like I've been at a smokey Karaoke night]

    Good atmosphere but an uneven mix of people. Everyone looking for a tech co-founder - no one who actually could be!

Was looking forward to meet bright people and potentially a CTO/Co-Founder that would blow my mind to embark together in a B2B SaaS startup venture (2 ideas - presentation management system and marketplace) but I have to pull out at the last minute for personal reasons.. Shame as I was looking forward to it. Hope I can make someone from the waiting list happy and please do engage me (virtually) if you want to discuss. Cheers. Nicolas

    Morning all,

    I am developing a platform that aims to disrupt and disintermediate the existing commercial property information market. I am looking to connect with anyone, from any discipline, who wants to get involved with an opportunity to modernise an archaic practice with the goal of usurping a powerful incumbent! Should be fun :)

      Well Ahmed the statistics show that passion alone isn't enough. Most end up going out of business. Platforms such as Innocentive and Open Ideo have proven this model we are just focused on digital projects.
