The purpose of this meet up is to focus on help attendees learn the basics of putting together a good pitch slide deck
Hello, how is everyone doing? I know it has been awhile since we last talked. I am just coming up for air! I am ready to hit the ground running.
I am looking to host another meetup at the end of June and I have a commitment from Google to speak. I am working to finalize the availability of techtown. I will have a date nailed by early next week.
Sounds great! Let me know how to help you pull this along.
Good Morning Everyone! I was reading about all the hype with Facebook opening up to the public the purchasing of their stock. When I looked on CNN Money Tech, I see that Facebook has a video of Facebook's Inverstor Pitch. Sounds familiar??? Check it out on my blog: http://headahopperhighwayll... .
Can't wait to see you all again!

Hello everyone, i hope all is well. It is with great joy and happiness that i let you know i have been chosen as a Crain's Detroit Business 20 in their 20s honoree, out of over 300 nominees. I give God all the glory, it is truly a blessing. Our new me detroit community is really doing some great things across the board. Check out the link below
Congrats, Christoper! Great profile! You may want to build on the pub by speaking at Ignite Detroit as well. Your project seems really interesting. I'm not affiliated with Ignite Detroit, but it seems like a good way to get a bit of exposure.
They have extending the speaker submission deadline until Sunday: http://ignitedetroit.net/sp.... It doesn't look like a lot of work to submit and it may yield some benefit for you (or anyone else in the group).
Thanks Marlo. i wasnt able to get in this due to other obligations. i am willing to get involved in some other speaking events that come up

Nice. Thanks, Marlo!
I wrote a blog post about our evening last night. Please check it out and share so we can continue to get the word out! Also, if we didn't get a chance to connect please follow me on Twitter and @ me, DM me or just reach out so we can get to know each other and share. Peace, Blessings and Tech success!
Oops, that twitter handle is @Therran and/or @HandRaiserMkt
Thanks for everyone that came out. I would like to show Techtown that we really appreciate their support. If everyone could tweet and include: @techtowndetroit and @newmecommunity in their tweet I would greatly appreciate it. They have allowed up to use their location at no cost and I think they would appreciate the social capital.
This is a great 90 minute video that highlights many of the things Hajj talked about, in greater detail. This gentlemen's name is Dave Tisch from Tech Stars, which is one of the largest VC firms in NYC. This could be great followup info.
Thanks for posting! Can't wait to see it. This was an awesome event!!! Woot! Woot!
Likewise, on a conference call with a client, will definitely make the next one.
Hey gang, originally RSVP'd to show. But have a particularly hairy product launch tonight and need to be on call. Will catch up later :)

NewME Detroit's Next Event: How to Develop a Startup Pitch Deck at @TechTownDetroit 02/15. http://bit.ly/yeSScl #smw12
The date above says "February 13, 2012" which is a Monday. So just to make sure I am on the same page as everyone, is the meeting on 2/15/12, which is a Wednesday? Thanks. :-)
Thanks for the comment. It has been updated!
New Me Community we finally have a set date of 02/15/12 from 7:00pm-8:30pm. I promise the date will not change for our monthly meeting.
The meeting time and date has been changed to 02/13/12 from 7-8:30pm so that we are aligned with Global Social Media week. If anyone is interested in being apart of the planning committee the next conference call is on 01/26 from 7:30pm-8:30pm. The current committee members have been contacted.
An email will be going out to the planning committee later today. Also, I just thought about moving the meeting to the, Social Media Week which is the week of 02/13, let me know your thoughts.
I think that's a great idea since it's global. Why not have your event during that week. It fits well. I am cool with that.
Sounds good to me. I agree with LaShawnda.
To those who were interested in being on the planning community I will be contacting you later today.
Hajj, can you forward me any information on helping to organize? im interested in being a part of the organizing team. i sent an e-mail a little while ago, im not sure if you received it or not. my email is [masked]
I will be there!
Happy 2012 to everyone. It is time to circle the wagons again. The second NewME Detroit meetup is planned for 02/02/12. Come out and learn the basics of putting together a good slide deck presentation to pitch your startup idea. Let's spread the word.
