      Thank you so much for coming. It was lovely to see you there and I apologise for not being able to spend more time chatting with you. I will make more effort next time.
      See you soon,

      May 2, 2013

  • Andrew W.

    Well organised guys - enjoyed it. Two suggestions:
    1. More clearly defining whether we are targeting entrepreneurs looking for full-time tech co-founders, or looking for "hired guns".
    2. Working on ratios - perhaps through split ticketing, as we discussed.
    But overall I really enjoyed it and look forward to more!
    Widge

    1 · May 2, 2013

    • Robert F.

      Thanks for the kind words. Your suggestions are spot on and we will definitely be addressing both of those issues before the next event.
      See you soon and let me know if there is anything I can do to help you build Snaply. As you know, I am a big believer in your project.
      All the best,
      Rob :)

    Good interactions, but pitching ran a little late so a few people left early and didnt managed to speak to them

    1 · May 2, 2013

    • Robert F.

      Good point. Will try to keep better track of timings next time, although we were there till nearly 11pm in the end! ;)
      Let's catch up soon as we have lots to discuss.
      Speak soon.

    • Robert F.

      Happy to hear you had a good time and got lots of contacts. As for the pizzas, I will definitely order more...or you could have 3 fewer slices, you greedy so and so - just kidding! ;) See you next time.

    • Robert F.

      Thanks so much for coming. Lovely to meet you, albeit briefly. As it happens, I am currently in talks with Moo to get them to sponsor us. More on this soon. Let me know if there is anything else I can do to make this group and our events even better.

    Hi, Looking forward to tonight and wanted to introduce our project.

    CarbonAid.com is a new crowdfunding marketplace for sustainable community projects with a co-benefit. Mainly to offer alternative projects for corporate spending on voluntary carbon offsets e.g. instead of planting trees in Africa, to fund local projects that actually provide a community benefit. Looking for someone with brains and passion for creating great products to join our small team. We need an in-house techie, initially part time to spec and manage outsourced dev shop building MVP. Even better if they can also help with wireframes and prototyping etc.

    Is that more than 30 seconds?!

    May 1, 2013

    • Andrew L.

      Quite interested in this. I've a lot of experience in startups and environmental work.

      May 2, 2013

  • Goncalo

    I'll be presenting tonight about the importance of having the right team in place. I will also be looking for online marketing and UX expert to join me for Syndicate Room so do make sure you speak to me if you fit the bill!

    • Goncalo

      I should have explained what we do: We allow the crowd to invest in exciting startups with the professionals (a.k.a. Business Angels or even Dragons!)

      May 1, 2013

    • Andrew L.

      Do you still need help with marketing and UX?

      May 2, 2013

  • Henry A.

    That for for a great event

    Great! The best 30 seconds I've invested in my company so far this year :-)

    Great event! Met lots of interesting people & had good conversation ... as always, I felt we needed more time though as there were so many people I did not chat too

    Circulate attendee list would be useful. I am not sure developers are as keen to stand up in front of a room and pitch.

    May 1, 2013

  • Nathan

    Not too sure about the format this time -- parallel interactions, with more time each, might work better. And REALLY need a better techie:entrepreneur ratio, but that's probably a societal problem. Obviously good effort from the organisers, though.

    May 1, 2013

  • Anton L.

    very sorry

    May 1, 2013

  • Andreas P

    Won't make it I'm afraid. Still up for connecting with savvy developers interested in being part of creating an app based vod guide though. Have potential investors lined up but need proof of concept. Get in touch!

    A former member

    It seems people are doing post-pitch pitches, so I will too. I am founder of http://www.Extendedrelative.com

    We are looking for business development, PR, and marketing people, preferably women, because the site is primarily aimed at mothers who want to exchange domestic tasks like babysitting and running errands without having to pay an hourly rate.

    We need to start our Early Adopters program to get people into the database, and we need people who can easily connect and reach out to the young family network of the UK. I can pay something, but my preference is to find someone interested in being a co-founder or partner. Please seek me out tonight. Im tall and wearing a colourful stripey shirt :)

    Thanks, Max
