What title would you like: 'Developer' (want to get involved in a startup), 'Entrepreneur' (want to pitch a startup idea), 'Developer/Entrepreneur' (both)?

I am not a developer.

[Developer Question] What types of tech development do you do? (languages/frameworks used, software for web, mobile, server, etc.)

n/a

[Developer Question] What kinds of startups are you interested in? (I ask this question because we may try and focus some meetups on certain types of startups)

n/a

[Entrepreneur Question] Are you ready to pitch or will be ready within the next six months?

I've been back and forth between several ideas and currently conducting interviews as both industry and market research. I haven't zeroed in on which one I would like to focus on yet, but am getting close and may certainly need a technical co-founder.

[Entrepreneur Question] We're looking for people who are ready to pitch a startup idea. Tell us a little bit about your idea and how much work has gone into it. (No need for sensitive details, just looking to get a sense of how developed the idea is)

My idea has gone from purchasing an F-16 to setting up simulated military obstacles over the weekend (5 days of research so far) and is still changing drastically as I receive feedback from my interviews. Where it stands now is it is a unique team building course designed to benefit vets and their families by hiring them and putting on these events for charities towards vets / military families. It will also have a heavy tech side, being that I'd like to incorporate real life tech into the obstacle course and I have some ideas for a creative website tie in in order to engage the general public (where I would need an experienced developer), but nothing that's solidified and ready to be pitched. Hopefully by the next meeting I will be ready.

I think it's an interest meetup and I hope it grows and develops into a larger gathering.
