Business Ideas Roundtable!


Join us to listen to some interesting ideas, or bring one sustainable business idea with you, to present as a suggestion to the others at meeting.  Something you've seen, something you've invested in or maybe something you've started yourself!  1-3 minutes to talk about what you like about your idea, why you think it's a winner, and maybe what you are thinking about doing with it. Each attendee can bring up to 3 ideas to present in this approximately 90 minute gathering at Waves on Main and 10th.  Should be a fun evening of socializing, networking and brainstorming.  I expect to see EVERYONE who's ever contacted me about their great idea and everyone who has asked me if I know of any novel ideas!!

This should be fun.  And quit staring at the lightbulb like that.

    is it possible to get a speaker to talk about what angel investors are looking for and how to connect them with the right entrepreneur?

    Currently in my next two weeks of crunching my business plan numbers down. Thanks again for an awesome first meeting. Any resources for business plan models that are modular and scalable to speculative markets would be ideal.

    I am intensely interested in Crowd Funding and Private Equity. I currently have 6 projects of which I am producing the Business Plans for and helping to raise Seed Capital and First Round financing.

    Thanks, Jerry and Jerry @Waves for doing this.

    Fun and interesting.

    Question by a newbie: How does "crowdfunding" differ from a new stock to the public, but without going through the SEC regulatory protection for the public? (Note: I am not a fan of government regulation.)

      Hi Rob - I don't think we've met. Equity crowdfunding is my forte and in the process of launching an equity based platform - SEC Reg D Rule 506(c), initially in the US, eventually copied by Canadian securities regulators. Give me your number and I can call you. Mine is[masked] or Skype tony.arias8

    Jerry, the original Corbin Sparrow had approx. 150 volts DC with a electrically "hot" chassis.

    I read Wired's Corbin "Sparrow 2" article on the 'net.

    Interesting.

      Imo, the Sparrow's "hot" chassis was a big factor in its failure.

    Hello, I attended the business roundtable at Salon Tea earlier this year. Even though I didn't receive an investment from attending, I'm happy to share that I now have my Wellness Center at 2910 Commercial Dr, Suite 7. I signed up this month to accompany a friend, but she has already made contacts through this group. So I'm changing my RSVP. I really did enjoy everyone last time and would just like to encourage those that are going this Wednesday that your dreams can come true, just put yourself out there and stand behind your idea. Many Blessings!

    Hey all! We have exciting new launch - a crowd-funded, profit sharing organic farm & eco-retreat project. Already operating profitably at a 30% margin & up 20% year over year for the past 3 years, we're acquiring & expanding & using the crowd-funding campaign space to do it, a high-level marketing team to drive the campaign & the right leadership to steward the vision forward. We're looking for support for our campaign, like our FB page, follow us on Twitter, share our message, also our initial Private Placement offering is open now for angels & our full campaign offering will be in October for our campaign launch. We're also creating an advisory board for some key members. www.athenaorganicfarm.com (website is being relaunched for the campaign, but our basic details are there). Looking forward to the event!

That can get things going prior to our meet up night, and help introduce you to interested or interesting parties. See you all at Waves Coffee soon! Jerry
