Thanks to everyone who came out last Thursday for "Mistakes Startups Make While Raising Money."
It was a great success! One of our best events yet.Local Wisdom
graciously hosted us for the second time and also videotaped the talk! I'm hoping we'll be able to post a copy online. Sun National Bank
(headquartered in New Jersey) stepped in and provided food, drink, and a raffle! Check them out for any small business banking needs you may have.Victory Selections
, a wine distributor and satisfied customer of Local Wisdom, was present to educate us on fine wine, offered tastings of their wine, and then gave us a quiz on what we had learned. The winners walked away with free bottles of wine!
Many thanks to all of our sponsors for making this event possible.
Thanks also to David Spira, our Assistant Organizer, for taking the lead and organizing this event.
As for upcoming events, we have a jam-packed month of October, with a small hackathon event
coming up on Oct 2, our monthly social
on Oct 7, and an iPhone 101 session
on Oct 21.
In November, it looks like we'll be revving up for a mobile app development contest
which is starting to take form. We're talking with a few sponsors and venues to try and bring this together.
I hope you're all as excited as I am. We live in happening times.
One last note: please do make an effort to participate! Whether that means hosting an event, or simply participating in "ideas" section and the forum on the website. We're trying to build a community here, and what you get out is relative to how much you put in.
