I am an IT professional of 24 years in Corp America engaging in the startup community. I have some developer experience and as an entrepreneur.
I work with students internationally to better prepare them for their careers while they are in school. We work on projects needed by the entrepreneurial community.
I am particularly fond of social entrepreneurial opportunities. Startups that truly add value to people and communities get my attention. I am also interested in helping the entrepreneurs who are less likely to attract seed money.
I am currently developing a platform to motivate kids in key social areas such as education, community service and physical exercise. The startup is built on the concept of establishing a community for parents to draw from that engage kids in ways that result in meaningful rewards.
I think it is a fantastic idea. One that I can see myself participating on either side (as an entrepreneur or programmer). The meeting date conflicts with some other big meetups like BDNT and Boulder Java User Group which is a bummer that forces a choice each month. Maybe creating a more structured format for presenters that ensure they are clear about what they need. Sometimes a little difficult to hear the quieter presenters. I think this has the potential to grow and fill a gap getting entrepreneurs and developers together. I am eager to see it grow.
