“ This group holds much promise. I completely expected it to be a forum for sharing ideas, experiences, and networking and it's a huge bonus that Shervin has a parallel longer range goal of fostering a vibrant OC StartUp environment/community. However I completely agree with John Ware that without a little more momentum this group could stumble and fade. With one meeting a month or less it will take years to adequately address a single lap of potential topics and there is no way significant Start Up environment progress can be made. I'd suggest weekly meetings with a loose format allowing for introductions, one announced topic, one or two prearranged entrepreneur presented pitches/q&a/critique, and time for networking. Perhaps the first meeting every month we could review the goals, progress, and projects for establishing a local Start Up supportive environment. Kudos to Shervin, the Vonata team, and all who attended the first meeting for getting us off to an excellent start. ”
