The August edition of #HNLondon is on tonight at The Strongroom on Curtain Road. As previously mentioned, instead of having talks this month, we a having a social mingle to get your feedback and ideas for the meetup. Let us know what you like, dislike or any crazy ideas for stuff you think we should do.

While we are here, I'd like to give a warm welcome to the new members of the organisaton team Natalie Downe and Simon Willison. Natalie and Simon are YC alumni and are currently running Lanyrd, a social conference directory. They have tons of event experience and bucket loads of great ideas to make the meetup even bigger and better in the months to come.

A huge to our thank you to our ongoing sponsor TIM Group who are providing us with a bar tab for the evening. Be sure to get there early so you don't miss out.

    It was a great meet up and met quite few awesome entrepreneurs. Also we are looking for a co-founder with a marketing background to join our team. We are looking for an innovate person that has previous experience in the tech industry with a proven track record of "being a bit eccentric"interms of coming up with new ways to promote products. If you are up for a little challenge, it would be great to meet up and have a chat. Thank you and all the best.

    I was at the event tonight looking for people with a great business idea who may need some help based on my own experience of growing an online payments startup over 10 years to 100 people and £10M p.a. revenues. I didn’t get to talk to that many of you so if you’d like to talk please drop me a line. I can be contacted here, via LinkedIn or preferably by emailing me at [masked].

    Unfortunately I can no longer make it because the firm I was interning with in London has decided to hold leaving drinks for us that evening. Wish I could see videos of the talks online at least though.
