Downtown LA Startup Breakfast Un-Meetings - #SUWSDTLA !!

Many people in this group have asked for a downtown edition, so here we go.

I'm launching this to tap into the amazing startup and creative movement happening in DTLA. If it catches on we'll keep it going.

So please TELL ALL YOUR PEEPS. The first one will be Feb. 13th at 7:30 to 10:30. No need to show up at any specific time; we'll be there until 10:30 AM. Show up later if you like...

Use this tag #SUWSDTLA to look for us inside Philippe - I'll try to let everyone know that morning. Also I'm @tomnora on twitter.

Here's the general description of our breakfasts:

..."Absolutely wonderful group & well worth the effort to attend! Tom has an amazing group of talent around him - these are real people, a rarity in LA." Web Marketing Startup Founder

L.A. Startup Breakfast Un-Meetings is a weekly informal gathering for anyone who wants to stop by and discuss their startup and meet others in the startup space. Based on the concept of separate checks, open discussions, and building lasting connections.

"Intimate gathering. Easy to get to meet and know about what everyone is up to. I will definitely attend again." Multi-Startup Founder

Think of it as a free advisory board or a place to find a job for people in Technology, Entertainment or anything related.

You should start a startup with people you know - you're going to possibly be together for a while. This group is a great way to really get to know some potential partners, see them every week or so for months.

"Excellent meeting again!!" Serial Founder & Startup Angel

No talks or formal presentations, just people who love talking about entrepreneurship and/or looking for people and/or wanting to join an early stage company.

Marketing is mainly by word of mouth, and there is always a slightly different mix, but always interesting. We'll also invite out of town visitors when they're in town to spice it up.

Please RSVP if you can in advance. If you have any questions please email me through meetup.

"I will be a little late due to traffic." Startup Founder, and anyone who drives in L.A.

"I and my lil brother-in-law had a wonderful time. The group was supportive, knowledgable and experienced. Adonnis learned more in 60 minutes than ever! Thank you guys." startup entrepreneur, private jet industry

"Always nice to meet with interesting and knowledgeable people." Startup Founder, Ed Tech

"Good hanging with you over breakfast." Drop in visitor from Silicon Valley

"Amazing group of people. I found this group at 30,000 feet 12 hours ago" Digital Agency owner

    Hi Downtown folks,
    Tom encouraged me to post a link to my app here (free):

    I'm eager for ideas on how to monetize it.

      No worries Scott! I am only sorry we didn't have more time to connect this morning. I am sure your experiences could serve as a treasure chest of info for me as I go down the startup lane! Next time

    Last weeks meeting was positive. I enjoyed meeting several individuals with a great deal of knowledge in the startup sector.
    The downtown corridor truly has a passion to build a community of entreprenuers and I look forward to working with all of them in the future.

    pretty amazing for a first time at this location. ~20 people, old and new friends, many with serious activity. Downtown has its own personality and pulls in Lincoln Heights, Los Feliz, Pasadena, etc.

    Hi Tom,
    Unfortunately, a work call changed from 10am to 7am on Wednesday. I will make the Santa Monica group tomorrow instead, and catch the downtown meeting next week.
