Dear Organizer,

I am writing to ask you for help spreading the word about our upcoming
"Bootup" Technical Pitch event, which is on September 14th. We would like permission to post it to your meetup group or have you forward it to your members. Any other help in spreading the word would also be appreciated.
We would also like to discuss running joint events at some point in the future.

We think your members will be interested in this innovative new event because our target audiences are web developers and startups. Our event is free and not strictly PHP related.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Milen Bourilkov
Intern, New York PHP
Bootup Co-organizer

Bootup Technical Pitch Event

Bootup puts startups in front of engineers to create a forum for analysis and the technical pitch.

Modeled after financial funding pitch events, Bootup is the first to bring startups vital technical funding, bridging the gap between them and the technology they require.

If you're a serious startup then join us to get your strategy validated and gain backing from the technical investor, while connecting directly with skill.

If you're an engineer then join us to demonstrate your technical and analytical expertise, while connecting directly with cutting edge work opportunities.

Qualify your vision before the financial pitch. Time is precious. Expertise is money.

All are invited for networking with IT and startup professionals. These events are free but RSVP is required. RSVP at

Our next event is September 14th. Can't make it? Watch our live broadcast online at
