The Mission of this group is to facilitate a connection between the two core personas needed to create a successful technology startup: the Hacker and the Hustler. We started this group in Boston, and after nearly 10 Meetups and 600+ members, we are bringing it to NYC.
Bring your ideas, find inspiration for an idea, help others refine their ideas, and find your future co-founder.
Hackers: If you are a software engineer, coder, hardware expert, designer, architect, and/or general tech geek and are looking to meet someone to partner with to formulate a business plan and handle the business side of things, this meetup is for you.
Hustlers: If you are a business oriented thinker - marketing, sales, finance, deal maker etc. and are looking to meet someone to partner with to handle the technology side of things, this meetup is for you.
Who this meetup is not for: Close-minded thinkers.
Who this meetup is for: Technology and Business entrepreneurs looking to discuss ideas, network, and meet their future co-founder.
Meeting Format: Each meeting we will begin with a 30 minute networking session, followed by three business or technology concept discussions. The concept discussion can be a business plan, technology / design concept, or problem / opportunity that you believe could be a potential business. Really anything that you would like to discuss in a structured format with the group at large. You will have 5 minutes to explain your topic, and the group will engage in a brainstorm for 15 minutes. If you would like to submit a concept to be one of the three that are discussed, please email me prior to the meeting at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Suggestions and Ideas This meetup is run by the community and for the community. Hackers and Hustlers are welcome and encouraged to offer suggestions for improving the meetup.
