Working full-time on your startup while on visa

Let's meet and discuss ways to work with 100% dedication on your startup, while you are still on visa. Unshackled founders will be around to share their experiences and explain how Unshackled can help in getting your startup off the ground. If you are working on a startup, plan to share a short pitch. If you are looking for a co-founder, this might be a great way to meet some very smart people.

We'll be on the second floor with name tags. Just come find us. The meetup time has been changed because of location availability. We hope the time still works for everyone. 

The agenda for our first meetup will be:

1:00-1:30: Networking

1:30-2:30: Short pitches, call for co-founders or needs

2:30-3:00: How can Unshackled help founders on visa +  Q&A

3:00-4:00: Targeted networking based on announced needs or call for co-founders

    Just checking to see when the next talk will happen. I wasn't able to make it to the last one. Can you share slides from the last talk?

    Interesting meetup, if you're having a first client and looking for a CTO please get in touch. Hackaton seems like a good first test.

    Very good Meetup!! However, next time it's better to choose a different location where, if someone want to, it's possible to eat also something (specially if the meeting starts at 1:00pm!!).

    Looks like I will not be able to make it to this event. Will the event be recorded? Also, I know there was talk of having another event in San francisco in a week or two. Is that still happening ?

    Looking forward to meeting everyone tomorrow. We'll be on the second floor. Look for a white t-shirt with the words "Founder on Visa?"

    Really cool! However, for me it might be a little bit difficult to reach you up, because I live in Berkeley and I don't have a car!! Anyway, I'll figure it out (but why don't you do it in San Francisco??)

      Cedric, thanks for the offer. Can we host one at Noisebridge on 4/24? I'll send you an email on that.

      Noisebridge is an open space so it should be good but I might have to leave before that date so I won't be able to help...

    I think it would be great to meet like minded people that are for real. Sharp intelligent people that actually have something to say and contribute . I feel I have these qualities.

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.
