    To be honest, it was a little sales-y. However, I must admit that had to duck out prior to the second half because I was sick.. so no bad rating.

    It was a great networking opportunity, but I think it went a bit long. Might want to switch the order of things and do the panel first, break, then have the startup pitches.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
