Why are you working for/with tech startups?

To learn about the business side of it. How to develop a true and realistic business plan, how to gauge ideas. Build alliances, network, etc?

What problem are you trying to solve?

Finding the right people to assemble a capable team.

Describe startup life.

A passionate, dynamic yet exhausting peppered with a lot of thiniking and making decisions on the spot. Wearing a lot of different hats during the day. But it all worth it, cause there is the sense of ownership.


Seasoned hi-tech software/firmware developer, with plenty of ideas. Looking for like minded people who are savvy on the business side, and eager to start something.

What Ali R is saying about this Meetup Group

So far very good. Hope to see more activities, so I get a chance to learn and collaborate with like minded people more often.
