     Disastrous event advertised on Fintech Storm - Online Lending . The advertiser is on this group and I would be very careful at events where you have to pay as the speakers may not be informative and the events may be badly organised. I am expecting all the speakers advertised to turn up if I have paid in advance and that was not the case.

     great 

    Ricardo B. on Jan 14, 2016.

     Did not get to meet with anyone from the group because all the details were explained so badly, Could not organise a piss up in a brewery. Sorry.

    Spokey W. on Feb 6, 2015.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     I very much enjoyed my first meeting last week and met some amazingly talented people. Very interesting. Definitely going again. We introduced ourselves and everyone had a short slot. Venue was OK and my only recommendation would be to find another venue with more comfortable seating! 

    Bianca T. on Feb 3, 2015.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     The best group so far. Most members are talented, friendly and helpful. Thank you all I give this group 'all stars'.

     Good idea for networking. I hope to build a new friendship, for me and my business. 

    Serafino V. on Oct 25, 2014.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     Disorganised. It is not bad when people actually get there, but organising the events, confirming location, etc. would make it even better. 

    Roland H. on Oct 23, 2014.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     Very well organised and managed. Format suited me a lot and it was super productive! 

    Sophie T. on Aug 21, 2014.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     this is an eclectic mix with so much diversity in culture, roles and reasons. Osmond De Silva has managed all the sessions I have attended so far. He does a good job in often challenging situations. Both he and Andy Leite have been incredibly helpful in formulating a pitch for early start up environmental education cool club. I would recommend anyone to come and connect 

    Shirley A. on Aug 2, 2014.

    mike w. on Jul 10, 2014.

    Martin R. on Aug 29, 2013.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     The participants are great and very keen to connect. What I quite did not like is that the event organiser does not attend the event and it will be very helpful to make introductions with the right attendees as the profile is very broad 

    Jose B. on Jul 25, 2013.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     Fine

    Vimal P. on Oct 4, 2012.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     Just fine. For those who can't attend evening sessions, it is helpful that this Meetup takes place during the daytime. 

    Diane on Aug 3, 2012.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     It has a great potential and good momentum The best thing that people there actually talking to each other and trying to combine skills together

     Always great conversations. 

    Aristos P. on Apr 6, 2012.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     I've really enjoyed the discussions on the mailing list - it's clear that there are a lot of people in the group who are passionate about what they do and about getting their startups (or helping other people get their startups) off the ground. 

    Julian A. on Mar 9, 2012.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     Worth going again, for sure! 

    Alex M. on Jan 27, 2012.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     Overall, very good and worthwhile going to. Usually make at least one or two very good connections. 

    Robert F. on Jan 27, 2012.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     Good meetup - potentially great meetup but no organiser! A bit of facilitation / introduction would move this from 3 to 5 stars 

    brianlmerritt on Jan 13, 2012.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     Good, dynamic 

    Laurent G. on Dec 30, 2011.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     OK, was much better last year when turn outs were huge. Seems to be dying a slow death. 

    Nadeem A. on Dec 2, 2011.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     I must admit i haven't taken advantage of the physical meetings yet but the mailing list is a great resource for any entrepreneur. Great to listen to, contribute to, and get a few questions answered by a friendly audience. 

    Ken S. on Oct 3, 2011.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     If you are an entrepreneur or someone who works with entrepreneurs, you'll find this of interest, a good place to find like-minded people and get a dose of human contact if you work from home too much. For me in particular, if you are a second-stage entrepreneur I want to talk to you! ;-) 

    Deborah H. on Sep 30, 2011.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     I wholeheartedly believe that great ideas come from unexpected places...and the people starting new companies are loaded with ideas (some good, some great, some lousy, but that doesn't matter)...and entrepreneurs, as you'll find at this meetup, are eager to share their ideas with others. This meetup, like similar events/groups, are great to practice your pitch, check some assumptions, meet potential clients, business partners, staff and more. 

    James on Sep 9, 2011.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     A good initiative. 

    Gary W. on Sep 2, 2011.

     A great opportunity to meet other entrepreneurs and investors. 

    Jonathan G. on Sep 3, 2010.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     Really good to meet new people who are serious about what they do on a very informal basis. The time of day and lack of structure to this meetup is its biggest strength. I'll be back :) 

    Dave W. on Aug 6, 2010.

     If you have an ideaor want to invest in an idea this is a good place to hear peoples experiences, pitches and thoughts first hand, quite a young group but lots of divergent areas being discussed.

     A great forum to share ideas, solve problems, meet intelligent people and for me hunt for new ventures. 

    Mark H. on Sep 19, 2008.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     There are alot of people with Web 2.0 projects planned or underway and each person you meet is a good bouncing board to test out how well your idea stands up to criticism. There are also a great many businesses servicing Internet projects touting for business so it's a good place to find various services. It's also a good place to discuss the latest technologies. Not sure it's the place to find funding? Perhaps? 

    David N. on Sep 12, 2008.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     Have been meaning to attend the OpenCoffee Meetup for months, have heard good things from many people, including... Håkon Haugnes & Geir Rasmussen from the Global Name Registry, Nic Brisbourne at DFJ Esprit, Robert Loch from Internet People and a few others. I got to the event quite late, but still managed to meet a great bunch of young and experienced entrepreneurs at various stages in their tech startups or ventures. Two notable individuals were Matt brooke-Smith who is developing a range of very innovative iPhone apps and Nick Donnelly at Netshops. Will definitely be attending the next OpenCoffee Meetup and arriving a lot earlier! 

    Justin C. on Aug 21, 2008.

    Daniel R. on Jul 17, 2008.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     A good balance of developers, entrepreneurs and business people so ideal for anyone looking to test out that first pitch and get an unbiased and helpful critique. It's also hard to beat all-you-can-drink caffeinated beverages for £2.50 when your on a start-up budget ;) 

    Eleanor M. on Jul 10, 2008.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     I feel there is a good match between startups, ideas and variety of businesses. Certainly if you provide services there are opportunities it's not full of tech. It's a very sociable and friendly group who are very confident and outgoing. If I don't attend I feel a little sorrowful. 

    mark n h. on Jul 10, 2008.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     Unfortunately, it's not as thriving as it used to be a few months ago 

    Evgeny S. on Jun 19, 2008.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     If you are active in any kind of start-up, particularly an online start-up, this is a good place to connect with like-minded people and make possibly useful connections. It's easy to access and if you don't like it you can easily bail out! 

    Alex M. on Apr 24, 2008.

     As my first visit, seemed good. I'll get there earlier next time! 

    Andrew J S. on May 10, 2007.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     It is good to know where to meet people with similar interests. However, i felt most people that I talked to already have their business up and running and I felt they looked puzzled at my idea, even more because I am still research about it. I felt an expectation in the air that It was not interesting yet because I had nothing to show. Nothing up and running yet. No cards to give, no web site. I felt that for them I was wasting their time. Nevertheless, it touch me it is important to develop a better catch introduction of my idea so it can be interpreted in a better away as well. Also with the majority of attendents being man, and my idea being in the lingerie/self-steem courses - maybe ladies clothes for man - they did not have a clue how to exchange ideas in this area and felt lost in speaking to me. On the other hand, Saul's idea for me to start with a blog sounded very usefull and it is something I will be looking at. 

    Be on Mar 16, 2007.

  • London OpenCoffee Meetup

     After going to the last meet up I am delighted to say that it was the single most important social/networking/enjoyable business event I have been to since entering the exciting (and stressful) world that is 'the Internet Start-up'. I think one feature which could work is allowing all the attendees to post a small blurb about their company and allow others to vote on ideas they want to hear more about. The idea(s) with the most votes get a 5 minute slot in the middle of the event to present to everyone in attendance or just those that are interested. Lets just hope
