"Absolutely fantastic group! As a first time attendee I had a venture capitalist on my right, a lawyer on my left, and oodles of startup experience across the table! outstanding!! Thanks for sharing, sorry I had to dash before engaging with all.... but next time.....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.
