    A diverse set of great presentations. Very welcoming and motivational for new tech start-ups.

    Great --- And a couple of good connects. I do wish the connection part was a bit better, even with all the constraints. I will speak to Peter, but if limited to entrepreneurs/founders for team building for some slice, then for those wishing a place, then to startups for 'advertising', then to service providers/ consultants (if at all), then we will get better connects. Appreciated anyway!!!

    A great Meet-Up with a panel of savvy tech women who provided lots of information and inspiration. This group is a great place to network and meet people who are truly interested in helping others. Peter Corbett sets the bar high!

    Good venue for crowd. Great line up (a little rough round the edges on some presentations) maybe having a template of questions to answer in presentation based on common audience questions or meetup member recommendations will help those less experienced speakers with flow. Of couse organic presentations say alot about a companies culture and style (revealing ;)

    Great night: Successful women + #DCTech = Too much about just being a woman, not enough about being amazing (which they all were).

    Highlight was the demo presentations by the female founders, which were incredible. All very talented, genuinely interesting, A+ polish. Q+A slightly less informative but still fascinating to get backstory and unique perspective - Jenn was EXCELLENT, but could've pressed the answers more, or asked more provocative questions. Best Q/As thus far were Michael's and Frank's (w/Bobby), who went out of their way to challenge and probe the interviewees.

    Peter gave a good speech but could do less intros to save time, and since ppl around me lost interest. I too would prefer to get right to the event.

    Tweet Up a little rushed, confused, as opposed to 1st meet-up where we had a bit more time and were more relaxed. If you cut the intro + maybe one of the demos = whole thing run more smoothly.

    Finally, please less pimping of funded Grotech companies and more random companies with cool ideas - "big stage" most useful to small companies for whom this could be huge marketing opportunity.

    Great evening. Very impressed with the presenting innovators. As a side note, I am female but never join "Women in....." anything. I don't understand the value of self-segregating. I wish to touch base with the first gentleman who spoke during the open-mike...I caught neither his name nor company name, but he said he is seeking communicators. I will certainly attend another Meetup. Well done!

    Great people, energy, and technology. Clearly, this is where all those involved in tech startups should be going. The group appears to be growing quickly; I can't wait to see it expand.

    Excellent meet up with so much insightful information!

    This was my first DC Tech Meetup and I liked the demo format but there wasn't a good way to follow up or meet the people from the open mike portion. Maybe a place for them to put their business cards where if I wanted to talk to someone without stepping over people to get to them before I forget who they are so I can follow up later. I work for a SEM/Paid search technology platform, and we're a start up, but at this event I was just there to check it out. There wasn't much really a business opportunity since we aren't looking for capital or engineers, but I did like that is seems so many topic will be covered in upcoming tech meetup's that I'll find the right audience.

    A good, positive group and experience. Come to learn about what's happening in DC, and to be inspired by the spirit of innovation, commitment and the supportive environment. Thanks to the organizers and moderators for well run meetups and their low tolerance for time-wasters, which is nice and appreciated.

    The pre-event networking was virtually non-existent as the vast majority of people came in and immediately sat down. This may have been a limitation of the venue, but would be nice to have a lobby-like area where people mingle before opening the seated area when actual program starts.

    The acoustics were terrible thus I could not hear most of what the speakers said. And even from the middle of the audience, I could not read what was on the screen.

    Great, great. Loved the presenters. The audience was very positive, supportive, and high energy as well. Definitely coming back!

  • Michael R.

    Great panel but the questions were too focused on women in the start up world and less on the products or innovation.

    I felt the organization of the meeting was great. The introduction was strong (thanked sponsors, talked about WHY he created the Meetup and WHAT it's intended for). The speakers were good for the most part. The Q&A was pretty good. I think the open-mic was sloppy and unneeded. I think the open-mic might be better for a web based format. It seemed comical that people were trying to convey ideas in such a short period of time mostly being taken out by the moderator. All in all, great meeting. Lots of positive energy. I wonder if there's a format to link the people who want to collaborate (investors, developers, people hiring, people needing jobs, etc) ON THE WEB. If you had to leave early but wanted to see a list of people looking to network, how would you do that? Looking forward to #4.

    Though I understood there would be presentations, I was expecting more a mingling atmosphere.

    Strong content, interesting female leaders...a few truly innovative and exciting services...one or two question marks and slow points, but overall an excellent showcase of individuals and their companies...

    Very good meetup! The PopVox founder was very inspiring.
