    Good evening SFO. My first venture, 6years old is mainly in to IT Services and open source technologies. We are mainly out of New York city, Sydney, Dubai and India. Currently I am working on my second venture which is a SAAS based business application startup. I am a visitor in CA to understand more about setting up my new startup here. Seems like, this is the best place in the world to be. Looking forward to meet everyone there.. Cheers..

    This Meetup group is here to help expand your network, business, meet potential investors, or just meet some great people. "Because everyone has greatness within"-JDD

    We are not set up as a place degrade any business or business practice, we let the market make the adjustments, e.g. Facebook instead of Myspace. Aplaz HR for early stage startups instead of Other HR Co's, etc...

    To reach that end, we aim to keep this group a positive forum for growth! Negativity of any sort is not allowed...

    Thank you all for understanding!
