Good morning, All, and again our thanks to Gautam Gupta of General Catalyst for taking the time to meet with some of our startups on Friday and we do hope it was worthwhile for all.

Yes, TechCrunch Disrupt is in town until tomorrow and for $2995, you too could be there, too. And maybe you are. We are not, although we were there for SAI Startup2010 last Thursday – as were a number of you on the list – and it was a stellar. Dennis Crowley (the most wanted man in SV) was as funny and spot-on as ever and yes, foursquare, who are adding 15,000 new users daily, does have a business model. Starting with the $1.00 off Frappuccinos for mayors of Starbucks. Just – literally – a taste of things to come. Best line (wait for it): in response to privacy issues related to location-based application. “As long as it’s opt-in I don’t see the problem,” he said, pointing out that he finds passive location applications like Google Latitude more of a concern. “It haunts me more than it helps me.” Amen! The winner of $100,000 in cash and services was RedBeacon.com, a Silicon-Valley based startup conceived by three former GOOGs. Coming to NY and a city near you, well, maybe sooner now that they’ve won. Finally, our thanks once again to SAI for the discount.

Onward and forward to the week ahead and somewhere in the none-too-distant future: Read More...

Good morning, All, and yes, we know we’ve been threatening it for a while, but we’re finally having another gathering! You can thank 1099 Partners (1099partners.com), who are sponsoring and more information to come (next week) about our sponsors and the event, but we wanted to get on your radar. And it literally will be in a garden, so wear comfortable shoes and yes, there will be a barbeque – burgers and beer. And speaking of beer and entrepreneurs – the House just passed American Craft Beer Week, in case you were distracted by the primaries and missed it, celebrating, yes, entrepreneurship – and a good brewski, we suppose. So we will try to stock a few microbrews.

Ooo, could an SOS softball league be far behind? Calm down, we’re not that organized.

And speaking of getting on the radar, General Catalyst is in from Boston and they’re holding office hours, yes, tomorrow. Time does fly, eh? Meetings will be held at the Silicon Alley Insider Offices (119 5th Ave, 7th floor) and here’s the link to get on the calendar: http://doodle.com/r26m8y4dqhzcpcgc. Do us proud, SOSers and maybe GC will be moved to sponsor an event for us soon as well. Yes, we know: subtly went out the window a long time ago. Read More...

Good morning, All, and so many things, so little ubiquitous wifi.

Ok, we’re starting with Friday and working backwards – because we can:

Friday: Stuart Levinson and Gautam Gupta from General Catalyst will be hosting informal NYC office hours and their focus is on consumer internet and software investments. Meetings will be held at the Silicon Alley Insider Offices (119 5th Ave, 7th floor) and there are still a few times still available, so go for it and here’s the link to get on the calendar: http://doodle.com/r26m8y4dqhzcpcgc
General Catalyst is a Boston-based venture firm with $1.7B under management. Background: founded in 2000 by a group of former entrepreneurs and operators, GC focuses on early stage investments in the consumer internet, mobile, enterprise IT, cleantech, and med-tech industries. Investments include OLX, Hunch, Boxee, ScanScout, PhotoShelter, RueLaLa, Kayak and Brightcove, to name a few. Read More...

Good morning, All, and before we tell you what the feedback is, we’d like to give more of you a chance to chime in on changes you’d like to see. And we will tell you the results in Thursday’s blast, not to worry.

First, our apologies to Hans Zaurnere who runs bootup and held an event last night – we received the posting a day too late, and more than happy to post your next event, Hans.

For those of you who responded that you’d like to know more about events – we’re always happy to post them, starting now, and FYI, Streaming Media East is at the Hilton today and tomorrow (online registration is closed – information on the events is at http://www.streamingmedia.com/conferences/East2010/); the TechAviv meetup is tonight (you have to join to group to register) and Driving Revenue with Digital Marketing Tools is tomorrow night in Queen. This one is free and you’ll find the information at http://www.nyreport.com/digitaltourqueens. The New York Open Coffee meetup is every Thursday morning 9.15-10.15. I know some list members are already OC members and it’s an open discussion, usually centered around tech and tech issues, and takes place at Taralucci e Vino (15 East 18th Street) and it’s also free – except you do pay for your own breakfast/coffee. As per many of your suggestions, we will try to post events that may be relevant to you, including those not hosted by members. We’re also working on an SOS member discount to Techcrunch Disrupt, not to worry. Read More...

Not going to say it today, because you know the drill… Read More...

IA Ventures will be holding its next open office hours on Thursday, May 13th. Come by, meet the team and discuss whatever is on your mind. They have a number of open slots remaining for this session, please feel free sign up here .

Speaking of startups and going in front of VC’s – wonder how the SOS startups did/are doing at Job Generation this morning. We’ll let you know after all of the votes are in.

For the lawyers and accountants on the list: we tweeted yesterday that nominations are being taken for the best accountants and attorneys awards. So if anyone on the list wants to nominate someone they know or work with, here’s the link: http://nyreport.com/bestadvisors Read More...
