It looks as if we have an overwhelming number of business co-founders that are looking for technical co-founders.  So if you are a technical co-founder and any of these domain areas interest you – these could be a good time for you to hook up with a great idea.  The following companies looking for co-founders are:

EasyVino – looking for a technical co-founder

Edthena – looking for a technical co-founder.  Edthena is reinventing the $12B teacher improvement market by bringing the process of observation and feedback online using recorded videos and specialized commenting tools.

Tweavr – looking for a technical co-founder. Tweavr is a content distribution channel.

WebAcre – looking for a technical co-founder. WebAcre provide Internet chat service for streaming radio or video broadcast stations.

Swiit Apps – looking for a technical co-founder. Swiit is the creator of the iPhone app Locally, a local social network for neighbors, locals and local business to socialize, mobilize and organize using a neighborhood pin board

Meescore – looking for a technical co-founder. Meescore is a social leaderboard game that helps you discover what cool people are doing.

yRides.com – looking for technical co-founder or business co-founder. yRides is a Marketplace for Car Rides

Each entrepreneur will get and extended pitch time topping it off with some allotted time for their own Q&A,  – this should give each presenter closer to 10-15 minutes of presentation time with the Q&A taking the larger chunk of that time. Afterwards the networking session will be more structured as it was in the past and should facilitate everyone getting to speak with those that they want to speak with.

Come to see if you would like to join a great idea or just to mingle with other co-founders

    We had an actual troll show up. He was funny at first.

    Simply great experience! If I were to pick on something,
    1. Pitches needed little more format like: talk about revenue model, clarify needs.
    2. Need more technology folks. E.g. Metup had all presentations by business folks, but audiance did not have many technologists or they did not ask more Qs.

    Thank you all for coming and for your questions and feedback. I had a great time discussing EasyVino's idea. I didn't have time to talk to a few people that dropped by my table but feel free to send me an email ([masked]) and maybe we can chat over a glass of wine ;) Thanks again Katherine and Andres! Cheers!

    Good plan Josh. However, first i just wanna ask Arash if he's offering to drive too since I don't have a car here yet, just came to town like ten days ago!
