    Disappointing, for Princeton Mayor. Sorry I had to say it :(

      If this is what you were looking for, I suggest you attend (and encourage others to attend) the municipality’s monthly meetings. Getting involved in local politics can go a long way. I’d be more than happy to meet-up with you or anyone else from the group to discuss how we can leverage the group’s members to promote tech goals w/in the community.

    Thank you for a worthwhile meeting combining networking opportunities, local techno happenings and community news...and great demonstrations....Karthik, amazing concept and much success to you! Next time, I will gain the courage to get up and formally introduce myself. In the meantime, I am a diversified graphic designer in search of work opportunities. For all you start ups, I'm available to create logos, icons, identity systems and strategic branding...to see work samples: www.coroflot.com/venacavagraphix

    Good to see everyone! It was our first time in Princeton Tech Meetup, but could already feel the energy and excitement in the group. We were able to give a short intro about FlashBind, a startup that we recently launched. For more info please visit http://www.flashbind.com.

      Really good concept , initially I thought its similar to Angi's list , but its different. Its more personalized and trusted network. I would love to use this product.

      August 28, 2013

    • Ratan B

      That's right Rupesh. The key here is the network, which provides a trusted channel between consumers and providers. Once this channel is there a lot of very interesting offerings can be built on top. Personalized service and CRM type features (scheduling, notifications, messaging and more). Thanks for your feedback!

  • rupesh

    Just a suggestion. Can we have some discussion on best practice which any Entrepreneur should follow. I know each person has different way of work and different personality , But If We can get some guidelines on initial stage , that would resolve many conflicts and confusion. Few of the question on my mind

    1. At Initial stage What should be prime focus ? And What should founder delegate to other.

    2. Is it okay to involve partners at initial stage ?
    3. Is it fine to Involve friends in your business or idea.

    4. How to decide %Ownership of the company, or Should we even talk about it at initial stage ? or should focus on building successful product or service ?

    5. Should register company from beginning point or should wait till something get materialize ?

    and list is endless....:)

    I am sure many people would have question like this.

    Cheers
    Rupesh Mehta
