MiniBar Monthly Meetup

  • Jan 25, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hi all

this MiniBar will focus entirely on 'Open Data' and how it opens up new business opportunities. In the past large data sets were usually locked into proprietary formats, but in recent years governments and private companies have made more and more data available. We will hear from companies and others who have built innovative mechanisms to utilize these.

Legal Drop In Session from 5pm.

Also: From 5pm lawyers and legal experts from Wiggin LLP will be offering free legal advice to MiniBar members. If you have questions ranging from IP protection to investments this is the place to be. Have a look at the program here. We only have 20 places for so pls RSVP separately asap.

 

Program:

Hadley Beeman - LinkedGov

Jonathan Raper - Placr

Heather Savory - (Chair) Open Data User Group

Jonathan Ezekiel from - Geo Search Labs

See you there.
Cheers

MiniBar Team

 

Sponsor: ICTKTN

    Hello Minibar! My company, Ginicam, has created a brand new video streaming technology that allows an unlimited number of people to engage in a live video conference, broadcast or feed simultaneously (for free, two-way HD video). It is not flash based and uses very little bandwidth. We've created a platform for people to buy and sell services in real-time using this new technology. We are also doing white-label/bespoke builds for companies wanting to use the video streaming technology outside of our platform. If you'd like to know more send me a message.

    Kind regards,

    Jon

    I am still on the waiting list for the main event and this is my 1st minibar. As Founder of African Foundation for National Development, my vision for Africa is to create a platform trusted by all to provide simple data that will help users make informed decisions on everyday event to be provided via our proposed "Clickafric™" platform.
    In furtherance of this vision, we plan to build Africa's first cloud infrastructure "Cloudafric™".
    I am only a dreamer and seek help from individuals and corporate bodies to make this happen.
    As the information age continues to penetrate Africa, more vital information is available to its citizens, more questions are now expected to be asked of its people in power. We want to be a catalyst towards entrenching a meritocratic Africa backed by innovation as we take innovation to everybody thus changing mindsets. If you are interested and want to join our movement please contact me on [masked]

    Hi, looking forward to meet:

    - Business/Sourcing:
    We are focused on gaining traction and developing relationships with vendors and marquee brands. We want to be global player and are looking for talent with international experience. - Tech:
    We are working on the next iteration of our product, building an API for cross operability of ecommerce platforms. We want this to be a "plug and play" model to bring offline retailers online. We also need help with managing our cloud infrastructure.

    - Angels:
    We are solving these problems across several industries: allocating spare capacity, rotating aging inventory, and preventing the end of season inventory glut. Our ideal partners would understand these problems and have an active involvement to offer stewardship as needed. Money would be nice, too. Also you have experience offering courses, training, or consulting work, and want to acquire new customers, I can make you an offer you can't refuse... @qvomo

    Looking forward to the meetup. Alongside my retail startup Branchbot I am available to meet with people about native iPhone development.
    All our apps are done in xcode and are handcoded, no phonegap.

    Some of our work includes the popular design app SnapRuler as well as the iphone app Branchbot that London boutiques are trialling. It's very hard to find native iphone development so tweet @omar_alt I'll be around for just a little while on Friday.
