    What a great experience. Pitching to the investors was a little challenging due to noise, nerves and distractions ...and that's the name of the game. I was thrilled we made the top 5 pitches!!! Well run event, super supportive, great group both upstairs being pitched to (investors, mentors) and pitching as well as interested entrapeneurs and people looking for the newest solutions and ideas downstairs. Bravo!

    Very neat to get a flavor of the start up scene around town!
    Exciting ideas & a lot of talent.
    Just a thought-- maybe some sort of way to assist with helping attendees meet other attendees. I noticed a lot of people had to resort to their phones as they weren't talking to anyone (and you could tell they wanted to).
    Other than that great!! Thanks for organizing this.

    1 · September 14, 2013

      Hello Alice, I appreciate your insight and would like to speak with you about joining our team of organizers! Our group is producing the Monthly Startup Demo + Pitch Expo that every startup and entrepreneur in SF will want to attend.

    Good event, on its way to very good, great and can't miss status. Number of issues that will have to be fixed, some vendors need to be schooled as to how to present, room flow needs improvement, maybe a note to those in attendance to let others talk to the startups after 3-4 minutes (if you want to talk to the vendor in great detail, make an appointment to meet for coffee/lunch/drinks next week, and move on, be aware that you are not the center of the universe), have to have all organizers in a position to thank EVERYONE for coming - this is a physical thing, smile, handshake, intro
    (including restaurant/bar staff). And since we are in StartUp mode, and the Event Host knows everyone's email address from signing up for the event, how about a thank you email to everyone who attended, contact information of all presenters, and invitation to the next event mailed to everyone's INBOX 5 minutes after the event is over?
