Good morning, All, and our thanks to all of you who attended ‘Find A Co-Founder II’ last night – and all of you who were with us in spirit. And yes, we do hope to expand it into other cities, for all of you who sent us your requests. Working on it, and any help you can offer on that front – we’re listening.

The next NY event will be sometime in mid-September. And again, a special thank you to our sponsors – New York Angels, PepsiCo and HodgsonRuss – who help to make it all possible!

We do get a number of requests for recommendations on outsourcing and thought this might be of interest to you. It’s an article about outsourcing to Argentina, which happens to be in the same time zone as New York. And for those of you in SV, time difference is still preferable to those of other countries we’re more accustomed to working with. The full article is here: http://bit.ly/bxlWdY Read More...

Yup, you all!

And a few others like you, no doubt.

Good morning, All, and that’s according to a Kauffman Foundation study (http://bit.ly/byg7Kh). They also cite that older companies lose 1 million jobs annually. Read More...

Good morning, All,

First, our thanks to our barbeque sponsors – 1099partners.com and the beer and burgers were great, and the networking was piece de resistance (remember: it was Bastille Day). Then again, it really is always about the people, isn’t it?

Speaking of which, we’d like to thank all of you for all of the information you send us – and/or tweet – which we happily disseminate to hopefully help you. Most of all, thank you for taking the time to help each other! Read More...

Good morning, All,

One of our SV-based list members sent us some information about two organizations that might be helpful to you startups out there – or to those of you who are considering moving out there, or going on a funding junket:

Bay Area Startup Network (BASN – www.basn.org) is a growing association in the San Francisco Bay Area focused on helping early stage entrepreneurs build successful companies. Although focused mostly on technology, BASN events and membership draw from all sectors of industry including medical devices and cleantech. Bay Area Startup Network is also the umbrella organization for USAngelInvestors, a private investor group that meets once a month in Palo Alto, CA. They’re both by invitation, but an email link is available on their sites to secure an invite. Our source in SV told us that startups pitch – and angels right checks on the spot. Read More...

Good morning, All, and after baking last week, we’re barbequing this week! Yes, 1099partners.com is once again treating SOS members to a Bastille Day burgers and beer in the backyard. Relax in the great outdoors and yes, you also get to pitch to 1099partners.com.1099ers is a unique service that assists technology companies with senior-level, on-demand talent and support. The 1099 team are not “between jobs” consultants but rather executives who can execute and obtain results by leveraging their experience and vast network of contacts to help take your company to the next level.

Startup friends are welcome, but we do need a headcount. 6.15 pm – 9.30 or so.

‘Find-A-Cofounder II’ takes place Monday, July 26 at Hudson Terrace, and the early bird rate is still available. Bonin Bough (PepsiCo) will open the evening and talk about PepsiCo’s new startup venture initiative. There will be a panel discussion featuring David Rose (New York Angels), Peter Shankman (Help A Reporter Out) and Michelle Madhok (shefinds.com). Then some of you will get a chance to pitch your startup. Then network and – find a co-founder! And who knows who else you might find in the room… RSVP: http://findacofounder2.eventbrite.com/

but some things can’t wait.

Good morning, All, deadlines are coming up, so we decided to send out just a few posts this week. There are usually more, but there are some events coming up that you should know about, so part deux:

First, the Fast Company influencers Project and your chance to be on the November cover of Fast Company. Fast Company is searching for 2010’s most influential person online. More information here: http://bit.ly/aGX8mt #smm Read More...
