East Bay startups + Techies meet and greet

I'd like to meet up again and learn more about what startups people are working on. A format I've enjoyed, and would like to emulate, is Boulder / Denver New Tech, a thriving meetup group where a few folks speak briefly about what they're doing, and people ask questions in a supportive environment (it's not a place where folks try to outdo each other and say hostile stuff). http://www.bdnewtech.com/
At last week's meetup, Joel our founder said he was looking for a co-organizer and meetup ideas. I'm happy to contribute.

    thanks again everyone for coming and contributing with great ideas about future meetup events. we'll do another one in the upcoming weeks to keep momentum growing!

    in the meantime, i verified that this is an "open" group and anyone who is a member in this group can post to it. this means, you can suggest a new meetup, create a page, and/or create online discussions directly to the group.

    so, if you want to follow up with an idea on upcoming meetup, discuss idea, etc, post away!

    thanks,
    joel

    In addition to discussing the group, let's meet, interact, and network. We’ll exchange business cards, share resources, discuss strategy and contribute to each other’s ideas or projects.

      Let's create a roundtable and offer feedback on each other's startups/ideas. See you there.

      (didn't mean to hit return). basically, let's meet up and discuss what we want to do with this group. we have almost 300 members so there is big demand for this group. we need leaders to help take the reins and make it active, so we do this once a month, as well as ideas on what we want to do with the group (have guest speakers, give feedback on each other's start ups, networking, etc). look forward to meeting you all. thanks, joel

    Funny! I was just going to suggest either Mon Sept 9 or Wed Sept 11. I may not be able to do Sept 10, but will see what can do. If could do either Mon or Wed that week, I definitely could do it.

    I think the purpose of the meet up should be for anyone interested in taking a leadership role in the group to meet and discuss how we make this into an active group. So far, everyone has some great ideas and we have a list of 200+ members. Just need to make it happen!

    Thanks everyone and especially Aurice for offering the location.

    Hi All!
    I do a regular broadcast out of the Oakland Hills showcasing product people and startups - would love to contribute to a vibrant community on this side of the Bay! Currently I'm working with Melissa Gena to produce Product Bootcamp SF October[masked]http://startupproduct.com 3 days of workshops, lightning talks, and rubbing shoulders with product leaders, visionaries, practitioners & others passionate about the pursuit of product excellence. Here's 15% discount on tickets with code "EBTech" when you register here: http://startupproductsummit.eventbrite.com/

    Check it out - the third day is Product Camp SF - an un-conference where everyone gets to present their ideas and people vote on what they want to discuss. http://pcampsf.com

    I invite you to join the team and carpool over to SF with us for these events and then bring the energy over here!

    Hello Joel,
    I have a space and lots of ideas for the group. I would love to be a co-organizer. I have been organizing my own meetup for 5 years and I co-organizer many others. I am an event planner by trade so I can handle multiple events at a time. I'm currently planning events at The Port and could host your event there.
    Here are a few events that are in our pipe line:
    1. A Business referral mixer on Tuesday, Sept 10
    http://leadsmixer.eventbrite.com/
    2. How to monetize your app
    3. What investors look for before investing
    4. Show me the Money: Financial Investing tips
    5. How to drive sales to your business and get access to funding
    6. Turning Clicks into Customers
    7. Crowd funding.
    8. Branding and Design

    I have lots of other ideas for the group and would love to help you plan and organize some events.

      I'm also interested in having Late Night Hack Night where you can come and work on your project into the wee hours of the night/early morning. Anyone interested?

    Thanks for initiating this. I definitely agree if we do another meetup -- it should be structured so we can get as much value out of it.

    I'm going to start to talk to people about times and venue, but if you have any suggestions or want to help, write me here. I'm definitely looking for help to make this happen (maybe after Labor Day)?

    Thanks,
    Joel

      Hello Joel,
      I sent you a message about helping with some of the upcoming meetups but I haven't heard back from you. I can definitely take some of the burden off of you. Let me know what you think.

    I may be interested if you had a meetup actually in the East Bay.

    This would be great! Can we set a date? who else is interested?
