Summertime Startup Meetup

  • June 27, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Before the lazy days of summer arrive and vacations start, come meetup for an evening of cold drinks and good conversation with fellow startup-minded folks!


At this meetup, we'll hear a short talk delivered by Will Fraser of Referral SaaSquatch, who recently led his startup through the infamous "pivot" away from its beginnings as Yupiq.

Hear Will tell their story about things like:

  • When they knew it was time to pivot
  • What their "aha" moment was that led him to rebrand Yupiq as Referral SaaSquatch
  • How they managed the pivot with their team, customers, investors, etc

 

We'll also have Chelsea from Moon Under Water brewpub on hand to provide us with samples of 2 new craft beers they've just released!


As always, RSVP now for the meetup and mark June 27 in your calendar.

Finally, we've had feedback that public venues (ie. pubs) are not ideal venues for meetups where we have speakers, so special thanks to Dan and VIATeC for hosting this next meetup at Accelerate Tectoria, allowing us to have Will share his story.

See you there!

      haha. I've ruined enough parties for exceeding posted capacity to know that I shouldn't speak on behalf of the host! But I'll go ahead and pull back the velvet rope a little... :)

    Apologies for backing out but even though I am done with the flu - it is not done with me. See you at the next one.

    I threw my back out last night (dancing of all things) and am now confined to lying down and walking like a zombie. Until next time... :(

    June 27, 2013

    • Jesse L.

      Sorry to hear that! The silver lining being, of course, is that if the zombie apocalypse happens this week they will probably spare you for thinking you're one of their own!

    • Jesse L.

      Like a monster truck show, you can have the full seat, but you'll only need the edge!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
