Team Building Session:

A new initiative - Test Run

We have been approached by many members from previous events regarding their needs to find programmers, a team of developers, etc., for their initiatives. This meetup will have a special session to help attendees form a team for a start-up, project, or some collaborations.

Everyone can check out what projects or start-up ideas these members have. Besides making connections, you are one step closer to finding a start-up suitable to you and join force. You also get to know the smart ideas these initiators have.

Please contact us if you are such an initiator interested in participating in this session.

 

=========================================

Dear Toronto Entrepreneurs,

We had a test drive last month for pitch practice and team building, and I believe many people (including myself) enjoyed it and liked some ideas/projects very much. This time I am going to gather momentum and attract more people and talents so that team building and co-founder matching can be better facilitated. Will also get people from business groups...

This time I will divide the crowd into tow groups during the matching session: "Team building" and "Co-founder matching". You can choose to join either one but feel free to switch as you see fit.

Important: Please send me info about your profile, team building plans, and team/co-founder requirements.If there are more projects than time allowed, we may schedule some to the next session. You can include whatever materials you want to send me (including slides etc.) for my reference and assessment.

Chris

Organizer

PS: All presenters from previous meetings: Please send me a brief profile for your startup or project ASAP. I'll compile it and put it on a discussion page.

    A small group about 30-50 people out of 200 potential people showed up, but it turned out to be a good networking event for myself. I was able to connect with a handful of people and grow my network. I would go again.

    Hey guys, I am hoping to be able to make the event Saturday and meet everyone. I am a co-founder of a start-up working out of the Digital Media Zone downtown. We will soon be looking to bring on a developer to help us create the back end of a unique gamification concept we have developed. Maybe a designer too.
    I should be there, but if not, [masked] is the best way to get a hold of me.

    I just joined the group and was just wondering if there are professional out there who can join force with me (have an idea) in having an online Marketing Brand for Real Estate. Just to clarify I am not interested in wacky Social Media guru's that claim to teach facebook or any networking sites. I already know this. What I am interested is somebody that attest to "Quality" of service and have online presense. Here is my profile if interested www.GreatRealEstateAdvice.com
