I went to the Sydney OpenCoffee Meetup this morning. I love the tagline: “Place for people who love startups to hang out and meet”. So I met a bunch of startup entrepreneurs, a few advisors and a funder or two.
I attended looking for two things:
- New Product Development ideas/team/products to put through the distribution channels I have built at work.
- Entrepreneurs, products or companies to invest in, either through my work or through the loose network of friends and associates who like startups.
Today’s meeting was mainly online startups, a few even show promise. Even better I got to chat informally with entrepreneurs who are pursuing their dreams.
