Show and Tell

I would love to see a meeting where fledgling startups sign up to do quick 5-10 minute show and tell presentations of their latest product/service/feature to give us all an idea of what's currently being worked on in Chicago. After all presentations are done, the startup representatives would be available to talk and answer questions, and otherwise mingle and network with attendees.

    All,
    I have heard back from a few of your (4 or 5) on doing presentations. In an effort to keep things moving I say we try to stick to 10-15 mins each and time for a few questions. Unfortunately there isn't wi-fi there, but perhaps demos could be done offline or through a hotspot on someone's phone. Any ideas?

    More from Joe:
    The Lincoln Restaurant is an old style diner with a Civil War theme. Portions are huge and inexpensive. The average meal will cost from $10 - $15. The restaurant is conveniently located at the corner of Irving Park, Damen, and Lincoln, and so is accessible from those three bus routes, in addition to the Irving Park stop of the Brown line. There is free parking in the back (to the west). The Lincoln Restaurant is known for hosting off-the-beaten-track groups.

    If you plan to be at the meeting, please send me an email via Meetup. I would like to reserve space for our meeting, and need to know how many people will be there. I am unable to post a comment through Meetup, so you will need to email to me.

    Here are some thoughts from Joe:
    I chose the Lincoln restaurant so we could meet earlier, and have dinner beforehand. I will be there at 6:00 PM to have dinner. Anyone else who wants to have dinner beforehand should arrive before 7:00. We can chat and informally network before the formal presentations. The Lincoln restaurant has a side room that should be able to accommodate us.

    My thoughts are that the event will be pretty informal. Feel free to bring any material you want to hand out to the group. I can bring a laptop if someone has something that they want to display. Does anyone know if Lincoln Restaurant has wi-fi?

    Is there a formal registration process for people who wish to speak? Or is it more of a freestyle, "just come on up to the front" event?

    I'm pretty new to this group but figured I would toss a time out there for everyone to consider.
