Let's kick it off

Dear visionaries and (emerging) entrepreneurs,

we would like to kickoff the first meeting of „Startup Hub“, the event will be hosted by Startup Academy in Basel, 19th of March (19:00). Picassoplatz 4, 4052 Basel (mnemonic: 19th of March, 19…)

So what will we do and what’s the idea of this meetup? First of all, let’s get to know each other! Second, there will be two short sessions, Patrick is going to introduce Startup Academy and I will talk about our „recently successfully failed“ startup. So there will be plenty of time left to get to know each other while enjoying some finger food and drinks…

Third of all, and that’s the most important part of this evening: we will setup small groups (grouped by interest) in order to enable you to have a series of separate „sub-meetups“ similar to the German TV-series „Perfect Dinner“ (5 guys cooking in five different places). We plan exactly the same and enable you to cook with 5 different guys while talking about startup and of course non startup topics.

Mission & vision of Startup Hub is not to come up with a weekly meeting it’s much more about connecting YOU and providing high quality startup communication partners.

So dont be shy and dont feel worried about all this cooking stuff - we’ll introduce in detail and nobody expects you to serve a perfect dinner - it’s all about fun and getting to know new people!

Looking forward to meet you guys, cheers - Florian!

P.S.: Agenda Sum Up: 19:00 : Come In 19:15 : Introducing Startup Hub (Florian/Patrick) 19:30 : Startup Academy (Patrick) 19:50 : Failed successfully! (Florian) 20:05 : Perfect Startup Dinner Setup & Networking (all) 22:00 : Door Closing...

    Quick question to the 'techy guys' in the group ;)

    Can anyone recommend an app to digitise business cards?? User friendly, free (?) and usable in combination with mail chimp...?? Thaaaank you so much in advance.... have googled and found a few, but would really appreciate your tips on this.. :) Thanks

      Thank you both for your reply. I will check out your links. Maybe I did not explain myself clearly though.... I am not looking for an app to be used as and when meeting with someone (like you say Patrick, you want to be focusing on the person, not your phone), but I happen to attend and have attended lots of trade shows... collecting hundreds, if not thousands of business cards over the years.... so, there is no way I can enter them all manually.... this is why I am looking for an app or something which allows me to go through my boxes and scan them all in and digitise them.... hope that makes sense... :)

    Some of you showed interest about the Business Model Canvas. Here is an interactive BMC you can fill in online, share with anybody and explore. There are questions and a youtube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7o8uYdUaFR4 ) to guide you while filling it in. https://leanstack.com

      Thanks for sharing, Maria. leanstack.com uses the Lean Canvas which was developed by Ash Maurya and is a variation of the originial Business Model Canvas by Alex Osterwalter. Here's a great 2min intro to the original BMC. Both a very helpful tools for startups :-)

    Hi guys,

    unfortunately we cant shift this event this time - last event already has been shifted due to webilea, when setting up this appointment Wednesday was not claimed...

    Basically: a positive signal that tech-meetup culture in Basel is growing since there is that much around you have to pick ;)

    Anyway, it looks like webilea usually takes Wednesday approaches so our next meetup will be targeted to Tuesday/Thursday. in order to avoid collissions - this should work for both groups.
