Bitcoin has great potential to help merchants and small businesses obtain new revenue streams and customers and reduce transaction costs. In addition, the buzz of Bitcoin has very exciting for business owners who have experimented with accepting it.
However, many business have questions and need help integrating Bitcoin into their normal transaction workflow. In addition, there are still many issues that need to be worked out so merchants can account for this new revenue in their bookkeeping systems. Services like BitPay are great for some, but most business owners will still need to understand how to integrate that service easily into their normal bookkeeping processes. The last thing small businesses want is another merchant account to reconcile.
The purpose of this meetup is connect Bitcoin developers and advocates with business owners who are interested in accepting Bitcoin for real! Not just for the "one-off" transaction but for every transaction in ways that are simple, quick and easy train employees on. The meetup is intended to be an informal "round-table" like discussion so the business workflow problems can be discussed and developers and advocates can suggest solutions.
Business Owners - Bring your questions.
Bitcoin Developers & Advocates - Bring your passion for Bitcoin and business cards so business owners can connect with you later.
Everyone - Grab your drinks and snacks before coming (David's Food Store is next door)
