Eastside Incubator Message Board › Henry Albrecht talks VC, Jeff MacDuff talks Tech Buddy.com Style, New Wareho
Busy month with the move, too much information for one newsletter, so read it in chunks:)
Henry Albrecht - Limeade CEO - Venture Capital From The Trenches
September 5 at 7 (that is tomorrow!):
Henry will share the good, the bad, and the ugly about the process of raising venture capital, what happens to a company after it raises venture capital, and how you can build your startup in a way that leaves you with the most control over your startup's fate.

Jeff MacDuff - Buddy.com CTO -
September 25 at 7:
Buddy.com is a fast growing funded seed stage cloud company built 99% on the .NET family of technologies. We will discuss all the technology stack and topology we use including hosting, build & deployment, tools ,and everything else needed to build Buddy. We will also talk about the formation of the company and how we have gone from just a concept to a 9000 developers + 8500 apps + oversubscribed million dollar seed round in the last 12 months since leaving MS.
Past meetup: check out Bilal's awesome presentation about Data Mining:
5 Keys Left
We are going to cap the amount of keys available to 30, and we are currently at 25. At some point, we likely will increase the number of keys available and some people will turn in their keys, but the newer members will pay more than the current $50/month. If you are interested in details, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are in the process of expanding the startup training available at Eastside Incubator. We plan to go fully live in October, but September will be hit and miss as we get everybody's plans finalized (yes, this is a minimum viable calendar:). If you are interested in one of the events, but you are unclear about when the event will take place, contact email@example.com and I will put you in touch to get the details. If there is something that you would be interested in learning about that is missing from the calendar, please let me know that as well.
Ruchit Garg, a new member of Ei, struck a deal between his startup 9SLIDES and Microsoft to make the 9SLIDES technology available for 45,000 companies across the globe - boom!
Ameya of Nuubuu, was featured in Geekwire:
Josh Ledgard of KickoffLabs released a massive V2 upgrade last week, and he is looking for your feedback (he is also looking to help you design and test landing pages for your startup, so you should check it out for selfish reasons in addition to your naturally altruistic nature).
Mohammad of MoaLab LLC released a new iPhone app that you should check out and tell your friends about. If you have an iPhone, go ahead and download it now, have a laugh, and share your feedback.
