    We can use your help! Would you like us to be able to live stream and record the TechBreakfast events? If so, we need to get to 1,000 Subscribers on YouTube to be enabled for YouTube Live - which will allow us to Livestream our TechBreakfasts at high quality. If you have a YouTube or Google account, you can help us by simply clicking on subscribe on our YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/tekbreakfast. Give it a try and help us out!

    Also, while we missed our opportunity to get to 1,000 likes by the end of May (and get more promotional value from Facebook), we have a second chance. All we ask is to have you ask your friends who like TechBreakfast to like us on Facebook too - https://www.facebook.com/TechBreakfast. Tell your friends! Help us grow this thing even further!

    Good Afternoon,

    Ron Schmelzer is doing a great job in connecting the entrepreneurial community in our region and beyond = Kudos.

    Columbia Tech Breakfast is a great way to find out who is doing what in technology and related businesses and how entrepreneurship/business development and job creation is developing in our BWI region across sectors. Great presentations and connections made today. The more we meet, talk, and connect the more we move forward in the marketplace and in our communities in value-added mutually beneficial ways. Thanks and Regards, Denée Barr

    Ron did another nice job moving things along and allowing for some solid networking while still hearing from the headliners. One problem is that this meetup listing is missing 66 RSVPers as the list only goes to the letter "M" by first name.
