Join us at the Victoria Accelerator for an evening of startup goodness!

We'll have Andrew Wilkinson, founder of MetaLab, deliver a short talk on how he successfully bootstrapped his company into a profitable, multi-product organization. You won't want to miss it!

After Q&A with Andrew, we'll crack some beers and catch up with each other in the usual informal networking format. RSVP if you can make it!

    Andrew was very inspiring with his presentation and it was great to meet some new people and visit with others I haven't seen for a while.

    Looks like a big crowd is coming. Just in case you have never been to our offices before, the entrance and parking lot are off of Hillside around back.

    Thanks for all the suggestions for speaker topics! I've noted them all down, and will maybe try out some form of democratic process to decide what the next one will be :).

  • Peter L.

    I'd love to see a talk dedicated to funding and grant resources for new technology companies in BC, and details on going about getting them. SR&ED, IRAP, etc., etc.

  • Philippe T.

    Hey Dan, it'd be great to have speakers sharing their experience of successfully pivoting to achieve product-market fit

  • Jesse L.

    We have a speaker confirmed for this meetup, loosely themed on "How to Bootstrap" from somebody local who has done it successfully. Details:

  • M. Shawn D.

    Topics I would like to see covered: how to build buzz and popularity for new projects; how do to a pitch (I have seen some terrifying examples of people who need to nail that).

  • Dan G.

    Some of you have heard our preliminary plans for Thinklandia; a major event we are planning this fall in tandem with the Rifflandia music festival. What keynote speakers or topics would you absolutely love to see brought to town this September?

    June 13, 2012

  • Peter L.

    Yes, walk around and talk to people to seek them out :)

    June 13, 2012

  • Bryan D.

    Is there a way for startup founders to advertise for co-founders at these meetings?

    June 13, 2012

  • Jesse L.

    Hey James - thanks for the suggestion. I agree, and have a couple requests out already to prospective speakers for this meetup. Ping me if you have anybody specific in mind: [masked]

  • James A.

    It would be good to arrange a speaker or two. Maybe Dan Gunn can put some feelers out for an interested individual - a good topic I can think of is incorporation and share structure in varying startup configurations.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
