    Hi all,

    I was the guy who used the "ask" portion of the evening to inquire about a sales person for my startup. If you are interested in chatting about a sales/marketing position (potentially leading to a C-level position with equity) please don't hesitate to IM or email me -- [masked]. Thanks!

    This was my first meetup with this group and it was time well spent. The meeting was well organized and the content was relevant to me. Made some connections and hope to be back next time for more.

    Really great structure with the mix of demos and the speaker from USV. Also, lots of good people to network with and we helped raise money for a great cause! Will definitely be back!

    This was my first time attending this meetup and it far exceeded my expectations.
    I have attende several other tech meetups in the city and Hoboken Tech Meetup was the best one thus far simply because of the quality of the content. Great startup ideas and demos. I especially enjoyed the guest speaker.Adding a guest speaker on top of the demos works very well.

    I am definitely attending the next event.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
