    Aaron- great job organizing and hosting. This was my first event and I will definitely come back! You have a clear agenda. A good mix of speakers and lots of time/opportunity to network. Congrats, you have built the small hoboken group into a solid state wide organization!

    As my first foray into meetups and meeting others in the industry, I was impressed by the organization and relaxed feel of the group. Little details like the mobile voting, presentation decks w/ clicker, and speed networking (next time maybe?) really make a huge difference. Plus everyone made the environment very comfortable and inviting. Looking forward to next month's gathering.

    This group is excellent. We had some great conversations and were able to share and receive some excellent advise. The speakers and feedback were also excellent and full of useful information. We will definitely be back for the next one.

    great. very well done. Only comment is with audio. But I have a slight hearing loss so it may be just me. I could not hear almost any of the networking announcements by people who spoke up to the group and missed many of the questions posed to Joy the main speaker. Maybe next time they can come down and or pass around a microphone. And have the speaker repeat the question.

    Overall very good, as always, and I loved the start ups that presented this month. The main presentation, while pretty interesting, was less relevant and useful to me personally than usual.

    Great meeting. Love the format and the speaker delivered a valuable presentation.

  • Stephen H.

    I thought the main speaker was just OK. She certainly wasn't entreprenuerial and she didn't have much of a strategy to talk about. It just appears to me that sometimes, people are in the right place at the right time and that skills are not the dfining factor. I thought the 3 startup presenters were interesting and shows what startups are thinking. It doesn't mean that the 3 startups are worth investing in.

  • Andrew B.

    Well organized, good speaker and some interesting start-up presentations. Overall a great atmosphere and community spirit. Keep it up!

    What an energetic experience it is to be among like-minded individuals. Anyone is incredibly unique, personally and professionally. I certainly look forward to our gatherings. Best of luck to all the uniques. Thank you Aaron. Cheers.
