Co-Founders Wanted April Meetup

  • Apr 14, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Our April event takes place again at Capital Factory.

If you are new to this group and have a project in mind, or have already started a startup and need a co-founder, engineers, etc, - looking for your first angel, - or interested to join a startup, come join us for a great night of startup pitches, networking, good beer, wine and food.

Please make sure that you apply with your pitch deck early, as we are expecting to make some difficult choices between all the great pitch proposals. 

April 14, 2014 Meetup Venue: Capital Factory

How to get there:

On top of the Omni hotel on 8th and Brazos on the 16th floor in Austin downtown. You will find $5 garage parking across the Omni at Brazos, between 7th and 8th. 

Formats:

1. You are an entrepreneur with a developed concept or a running startup pre VC round, looking for co-founders, talent, or investors. 

2. You are a techie looking for your Startup (reverse pitch).

3. For February we want to try something new: a 60sec pitch for an idea to form a group developing an MVP testing that concept. You can pick people from the audience to be part of your group. 

Why?

Because it is fun! and also pitching in our Meetup lets you "practice" your pitch and get feedback from other startups and investors, always a good thing!

How to attend in the audience?

Simply RSVP.

If you are a software or hardware developer, or UX/UI designer, or developer interested in joining a cool startup, you can attend for FREE. Just send an e-mail to [masked] 

Otherwise, the contribution is $10 to cover for this non-profit event. Drinks and food provided. 

How to apply as a presenter? Just go to this link https://tinyurl.com/thetechmap

The deadline to send your pitch deck is Friday, April 4th, 2014: We will announce the presenters by Monday, April 7th, 2014

1. Who are you? 
2. What is your business? 
3. Why does it matter? 
4. What is your business or revenue/traction model? 
5. What are you asking for?

The presentations are limited to strictly three slides, plus one cover slide with your logo, and a final slide with your contacts. Remember that you'll only have max 5 minutes to present. 

NEW: To maximize screen space during presentations and avoid formatting issues, please submit only Powerpoint slides in 16:9 format. You can change from classic 6:4 format under Page Setup.

If you are interested in doing a reverse pitch or a 60s pitch, please email us and we send instructions.

    I'm the founder of FrontYrd and I'm looking for a technical or UX/UI skilled co-founder. FrontYrd's first product is a bit like Craigslist for your neighborhood, but with verified neighbors creating trust, convenience and a more social experience. The service enhances the hundreds of community garage sale groups (with over 1 million total members) already active on Facebook, creating a better experience for members. In just a couple months we're already at 10%+ household penetration in our beta launch communities, but I need both UX and development help to innovate faster and to expand across Austin and then the rest of the country. If you'd like to learn more, I'll be the bald guy in the light blue shirt with red stripes--say hello! You can also email me at [masked].

    Great to hear from you Jeff, we should catch up!

    Hi Everyone,

    I am a private equity investor currently based in Melbourne but will likely move to Austin or similar in 12 months time.

    I will be going to China Shanghai and Chong Qing to meet my Chinese partners in 2 weeks.

    On the off chance that anyone is looking to set up something in Chonq Qing, China

    Very interested to set up viable projects for the city.

    Google Chongqing with its population of 30+ m. 

    Any interest to have a quick chat I am available on Skype (if you give me a heads up)


    Cheers
