About Bloggers Meet Startups:

This is a networking event and an opportunity for open discussion. Startups and Bloggers are welcome to bring their best 60-second elevator pitch and everyone is invited to come up and talk about their projects. Everyone gets a chance (and encouraged) to pitch in sort of a speed networking fashion so bring your best pitch.

Featured projects have 5 minutes to pitch and can bring visual aids; handouts. To learn about how you can become a featured startup, visit our website: Featured Startup Request

This month’s featured Presenters and Projects:

David Zaretsky: is a social sharing platform that rewards publishers and content creators for the social value their content generates via advertisement revenue. When a visitor clicks on a snipped link, they are shown a full-page advertisement for several seconds before reaching the shared content. Publishers earn revenue from these paid ads shown to their visitors.

Derin Alemli is a jack of many trades who loves entrepreneurship, music, and creativity.  Derin received his BS in Finance from the University of Central Florida in 2005 before pursuing a career in hedge fund investments in Chicago with Grosvenor Capital Management, earning an MBA from the University of Chicago and a CFA charter in the process.  For the last year Derin has been heading DownBeats, a brand of high fidelity hearing protection for concert goers that is growing rapidly and is actively expanding through content marketing and a further developed product line.
