    networking? I was surprised that very few people I met had business cards with them. Otherwise, it was a matter of breaking the ice in whatever way possible. I figured out a workable strategy (which I would be happy to share if anyone is interested) and with it I met and talked with a double digit number of fine people. Thank you.

    Hello. I am trying to get back to S.F. in time for the event but doubtful & disappointing. (Stuck in an airport with a delayed flight!) We have a completed Biz Plan/Deck & Financial Projections for unique Cloud based collaboration & "virtual studio" app.
    I am seeking:
    1.) Initial 1st stage investment and/or pledge agreement.
    2.) Technology partner/CTO/Project Execution Manager Open and EAGER for discussions regarding equity roles
    & partnerships; advisors & mentors; Cloud evangelists.
    Hope I can make it tonight at some point but if not good luck to all the presenters! And your replies are welcome. [masked]

    Congratulation José and other organizers!
    Well, Exactly What I think...some products/Service were amazing! But...were you all ready to answer to the "same and only question" Investors only ask: How much money will WE (not you, they don't care :-) ) earn thanks to your product!? Were you on stage to early? Think a night about it. You could be at the place of Kuli Kuli...next time I hope ! Lionel, SwissTeamInvest
