Let's get this ball rolling.
Please come to the first meetup of this group. It will be in TeqCorner on the third floor.
There are plenty of parking spaces outside (and they are free).
All of experienced entrepreneurs to whom I talked are busy (on vacation/business trips). So, I (Victor Ronin) will share lessons learned about company which I owned for 5 years and sold.
Join or login to comment.
Victor - thanks a ton for organizing it; I enjoyed hearing about your start-up and meeting everyone!
FYI, there's a great course on how to build a start-up on Udacity (fantastic and free site), which is taught by world-famous Steve Blank: https://www.udacity.com/course/ep245
Also, if you guys want to have an interactive way to learn some technical skills, check out codecademy (free) or teamtreehouse.com (~$30/month).
Stay in touch!

Following on Jared's list of resources, I have found [masked] to have a wide and useful range of classes re: various development issues, financing, UX, etc, most of which are free. They also have a $25/ mo access to anything they have online
Sorry for the last minute cancellation, got an unexpected schedule conflict.
Victor, thanks so much for organizing this event and I believe this meetup and upcoming ones will be very successful. I was looking forward to meeting you and other great people from this group. Unfortunately, I am not able to make this one. My super-energetic toddler boy will regain his energy after his nap, and we need to play with him; even though my husband and I both had a long and tough day. Hope to catch up at upcoming events.
I just found about this group and joined it right away. Although I will miss the meetup today, I am looking forward to see you and other entrepreneurs next time.
I wil be unable to meet at scheduled time.

Sorry! Work conflict, looking forward to next meeting.
I am excited about making arrangements to make your meeting on next Tuesday. I also have started a group that meets at the new Capt Mas Crab House in Sterling VA on Wednesdays from 5p- 8p called the Bosses of NOVA Social. I would love to have you and the group join us!

Hi Victor, this meetup is from 7pm to 8:30pm, or to another time? Looking forward to meeting you and everyone else if I can make it. Thanks!
We will see how it will go. I believe first part (lessons learned) should be finished at about 8pm and the rest of the time will be a networking part. So people can choose when it's comfortable for them to leave.
Looking forward to the meet up
