    This was an outstanding meetup. The speaker presented a good case for doing start ups that build things. He enlightened the audience with the trials that faced him and his company and company, and how they overcame them. In addition, I met some good people doing interesting things whom I may be able to help. I also met a pair of material science & chemistry scientists who may be able to help me.

    I am a bit biased as my situation is quite similar to Eric's. But I loved his presentation. It's like in X-Men when a mutant finds others like themselves and no longer feel alone in the world... exactly like that.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
