Keep It Going

  • September 27, 2012 · 7:00 PM

Hey there everyone,
Its been a few weeks since our first meet up.
I suggest we meet again on the 27th of this month. The group has been growing steadily and we have  over 50 members now.
Here are a some things I have been working on in the last few weeks:


Trying to figure out a venue thats cool, informal and scalable...its been tricky..I have been speaking to the public library in Jersey City and will have an update soon.

Toying with the idea of some pitches from meetup members who are working on start ups..Let me know if you would like to hear a quick, fast and engaging pitch from some of the members....(we do need a venue that has the vibe for pitches...)

Thinking of some ideas to get more membership into the group...(may be leaflets at Starbucks, tweet abt it etc)...let me know some suggestions. I would prefer a curated group to start with where each member nudges friends to join.

Let the community know your thoughts and suggestions

Also if you dont like the date please do let me know..
Cheers
Uday

    Thanks for the comments. I have been talking to other venues and options. I am sure that by the next one we will have a few more options.
    Look forward to your suggestions victor.

    Let's keep this positive, folks. Keeping the meetup in JC would be a great way to promote the city and its talent, but we'll get there. For now stay scrappy, stay hungry, stay foolish.

    Hi Uday - I am just grateful that someone is organizing this meet up. Yes, Jersey City location would be better but Hoboken is not that far until we find something in Jersey City. We will not miss people who don't show up just because its a different town.

    Going to Hoboken for a Jersey City Tech meetup? Not for me.

    There are number of companies in Jersey City in Newport and Journal Square areas who should be able to host this small group. I will be meeting with one such firm and mention the idea. Meanwhile, changing my RSVP to no.

    The library sounds like a great idea.

    Are there any schools in the area that might provide space?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
