The Happy New Year Meetup!

Happy New Year!

This Wednesday's meetup will be held at Lido Bistro on Wharf Street downtown at 7:00pm.

We'll have the place to ourselves, and VIATeC has kindly sponsored the meetup to ensure that we have beverages to keep us hydrated (yes, beer!). Thanks to Dan and VIATeC for sponsoring!

For this second meetup, many of you asked to switch up the format, so we're going to try something a little different. We'll have a speaker deliver a short talk to the group, followed by group Q&A.

One issue common to all startups is funding, and many members in this group have asked to hear from a local investor. Rasool Rayani is an entrepreneur and angel investor here in Victoria, and will deliver a short talk to us on Wednesday night about what he looks for in investment opportunities. It's a great opportunity to hear from one of Victoria's leading angel investors, and ask him questions to help you with your own startup.

The schedule is as follows:

7:00 - show up, get settled

7:15 - talk delivered by Rasool

7:30 - Group Q&A with Rasool

7:45 - break for mingling, networking, and beers!

Please help spread the word about our meetup to anybody you think would find it interesting. Look forward to catching up with everyone on Wednesday!

    I'd love to chat with people about whether there's been a Democamp group in Victoria. I participated Democamps in #yyc and found them to be really rich. Please chat with me if you've knowledge or interest.
