What we're about

From the former host of Boulder Open Coffee Club (BOCC, 2010 - 2013) comes a weekly moderated chat about the latest in technology, startups, digital lifestyle, and business. It's a simple event format built around community, jobs, and fostering relationships across a variety of disciplines.

BOCC, started by Jason Mendelson of Foundry Group, has been featured on CNBC, Fox Business, The New York Times, and was filmed by NKH Japan for a special segment on entrepreneurship. It's been the catalyst for startups, and hundreds of business relationship over the years.

#BigDOCC! Talk tech, startups, and digital lifestyle for an hour!

CENTRL Office Downtown Dallas

Hi there! This week we're checking out the new coworking space opening downtown, CENTRL Office. They're a Portland-based company, and they're opening their new location officially and would like to give us a tour of the space, located on the second floor of the same building as D Magazine. ------------------------ You wake up every morning, filled with excitement about the technology news of the day. Wouldn't it be great if you could surround yourself once a week with people just as excited about tech as you are? Imagine a one hour chat, moderated of course, with people that love talking tech because they're passionate about it? Free coffee too? How this works: You bring yourself, and hopefully a friend. Your friendly moderator, Caitlin Studley, will start the conversation with introductions of any new attendees and then we'll tackle a few items such as community events (yes, you can promote yours!), jobs (who's searching/hiring), and then we get into it--what do you want to talk about this week? We use a community Flipboard to keep track of stories and share them on Tuesday mornings, but anything you find interesting is fair game for discussion. We have a hard stop at 9:00am, but anyone is welcome to stay afterwards and continue their conversations. We hope to see you soon. P.S. There are several other Open Coffee Clubs in Dallas/Fort Worth if this location is too far away, so we certainly encourage you to check those out. P.P.S. If you're new to downtown or want to try a new way to get there, have a look at the post Michael S. wrote for Launch DFW called "How to get to Downtown Dallas (http://launchdfw.com/news/how-to-get-to-downtown-dallas/)."
