This meetup is dedicated to curating speakers and holding events where experienced entrepreneurs who have built (and often sold) their startups can take the stage and share a few of the things they learned along the way.
We're always looking for new topic ideas and new speakers. So if you're interested let us know. Check out our list of past meetups to get an idea of the range of topics.
Each event is sponsored by Elance-oDesk. Often that means food and drinks are provided, along with swag and Elance-oDesk credits. Right now groupmembers get $100 off the first time you hire a freelancer on oDesk.com. After you join this group, look for 'Perks' on the group homepage.
