    Meetcha looks like a great product. Judging by one of the questions, someone doesn't have much of a social life...

    2 · April 23, 2014

    • Jodi

      Thanks Anne for more good advice, and Dmitry I am very happy to hear that you are having success with your outsourcing. I guess I only hear from the people who have a bad experience because they are the ones who need me to fix things. It is good to hear the other side. I am learning a lot from all of you.

      April 24, 2014

    • Med B.

      Hi Jodi, glad to help. I'll email you with details.

    Hi Henry

    Good effort and well done for pulling this together

    Some constructive feedback as follows
    Food and drink was good idea
    Need to get the presentations ready for full screen use in a slicker manner
    Need to have chairs available for the course of the evening. Too long to stand up the whole time
    Be good if you could do more meet and greet or do 10 minute personalised intro
    Limit number of spkrs or have a break in the middle to allow people comfort and recharge breaks
    Keep up the good work
    Best
    Peter

    Great night. Reminded that many are walking the same startup path.

    'Meetcha At' guys stole the night for me. Jodi and Tom keep hustling. Maybe change the 1$mil to 500k or equivalent for UK audience.

    Dmitry Selemir, loved your idea. I guess the biggest question to answer. How do you convert me from Medium/HackerNews user to Scriggler.

    Thanks again Henry.

    1 · April 24, 2014

    • Jodi

      Thank you Anthony. Yes I am definitely getting the impression that people think I am asking for too much money.

    Hi all. Great turnout last night. A few of the pitches touched upon the need to improve the product and the customer/user experience. Khosla Ventures have hired a very well respected UX consultant in a move that shows the significance of great UX in the success of a product: http://techcrunch.com/2014/04/22/irene-au-khosla-ventures/

    Also seen a great course for the rookies on product UX. Great deal from Deal Fuel: http://dealfuel.com/seller/user-experience-design-fundamentals/

    Too many speakers with bad acoustics

    April 23, 2014

  • Anne K S.

    Tx you Henry for getting this off the ground and for the free book. Have to say acoustics were v. hard and I look fwd to pitches getting tightened up

    Guys.. It sounds like the meetup is going strong.. Its a shame i couldnt make it :( .. Will make it to the next one..

  • Deborah H.

    Would have been great to have had some more searing in the hall. Standing for 3 hrs can be gruelling after a full day at work. Also would be gr8 to have an idea of how many presentations and agenda. Was a good networking event and really interesting presentations. Good fun!

    I'm afraid I'll have to miss this one due to a new work commitment. Have a great time, looks like this one will become a regular feature. I hope to join you all at the next one. If you work in the Campus area, I'd be happy to meet up for coffee and chat with anyone needing my help.

  • Vipul S.

    Hi,

    I came across this group and was thinking if its suits me. I am not a startup entrepreneur yet but have few ideas as to what I would like to do. I am facing some challenges/question in terms of going about planning my next steps towards entrepreneurship. I am looking for knowledge sharing from existing startup founders/ been there done that people/ mentors etc. about their experiences in handling issues they have faced. Would this group suit me or is it exclusively for people who already have a startup in place? Looking forward to hear back soon. Thanks, Vipul

    April 10, 2014

    • Henry C.

      Hi Vipul. The group is not only for startups that have launched or entrepreneurs with a solid idea. You can get value from attending and speaking with fellow attendees or requesting specific help. The group can help you go from idea(s) to startup to launch and beyond.

      April 13, 2014

    • Vipul S.

      Thanks.. I will try my best to make it.. It will be good we we can have an agenda for the meetup.
