Startup drinks: November Rain Edition

  • Nov 13, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come on down and catchup with like-minded entrepreneurs from all walks of life within Victoria's booming tech and startup communities!

After a successful couple meetups at Accelerate Tectoria's offices, we'll be taking things back downtown and combating the cold November rain for an evening of drinks at The Bengal Lounge at the Empress.

Our hosts at The Bengal Lounge will be offering all of their tap beers for $6, along with highballs for those of you requiring some extra warmth.

There will be no speakers at this meetup, giving you plenty of time and opportunity to reconnect with others. Please RSVP soon as space is limited.

See you there!

    Hey Group,


    I meetup is great, however without a proper system, you can only network with a few people. I too understand the excitement of meeting someone who just "GETS It" and you can talk for hours. You cannot get that same feeling that from regular people. Solution:

    Instead of having an event where everyone can talk to each other for hours and hours.
    We should instill a system that only allows 15 minute interval conversation where you introduce yourself and what you do. Usually you can tell if you like a person's attitude and enthusiasm within a few minutes. Then you exchange contacts and plan to meet elsewhere for a 2 -3 hour conversation which I know all enthusiastic entrepreneurs will do.

    With this, you are guaranteed to meet much more entrepreneurs and grow you contact base. In my opinion this will benefit all of us.

    Besides that, It was great to see so many people with an intensity and PASSION for SUCCESS !!!!!!!!!!!

    Meetup was Great !
