Tech Wednesday - Feedback/Suggestions on meet ups

Hi everyone,
Firstly we are pleased to see that each month the numbers attending Tech Wed are growing and we have so many people signed up.
We want to make sure that we continue to attract so many of you and would therefore appreciate any feedback/suggestions on what you would find useful when attending or what you are looking for.
Our aim is to bring the local tech/start-up community together by show-casing new business ideas (and getting feedback), people sharing their experiences, any topics related to tech and networking with other like-minded people.  We know some people attend as they might be looking for a co-founder, a techie who wants to be involved in a start-up etc and we would welcome any suggestions on how this can be improved.  We are thinking of introducing different colour name badges next month with details of skills and you are looking to get out of the meet up so there is a better chance of you networking with the right people.  Any other suggestions welcome!
Don't forget you can always use the message board to communicate with other members.
Details of our next meet up on 21st May will be advertised shortly!
Have a good weekend!

This is a great idea Michelle - meeting potential founding team members is one of the best aspects of coming to TW.

By way of suggestion, can I suggest arranging opportunities for entrepreneurs to present with a view to finding team members, just as you would when raising funding. I guess this could fit into a normal TW meeting, but if there were several start-ups or companies presenting on the same night, it could be incentive to get a high turnout focused on recruiting/joining a start-up.

Or maybe a mini speed-dating event?? Just some thoughts...

Hi Michelle, the coloured badges sound like a great idea.
