Thank you for the five interesting advertisements.
Okay, it might just be me. I come from Budapest, where the local New Tech Meetup presentations have always (since 2007) been about actual tech issues, like one given problem developing a product or an algorithm, and how the team has overcome it. We got to know startups but we got something meaningful alongside that, with laid back chatter and beers afterwards, of which a great community had formed. Hell, one time we've got to check out an actual bare eye 3D display fresh out of the workshop.
In contrast, here I see mere self plugs with surprisingly aggressive networking afterwards. No tech discussions, no making new friends; everybody wants to know if you're an investor, if you can employ them or if they can employ you.
That might of course be just what people are looking for, and that's fine - but then please remove the misleading "this is about technology, not company powerpoints" part from the description.

Hi, I'm Niek, co-founder of MoneyBird. It would be great if I could get in touch with some German freelancers who are using our product or plan to use MoneyBird in the nearby future. In the Netherlands we've got 45.000 users... but here in Germany, we just started... and you all know how difficult it is to get some feedback.
