6/10/10

Good morning, All, and our thanks to everyone who attended the event on Monday evening and an observation: the event was held at Drom, which is a club/bar in the east village and we had a great turnout. However (and not surprisingly) – a number of those present were looking for technical cofounders. And we know that techies, on balance, often need some enticement in order to step away from their screens. Suggestion: just as most bars offer specials to entice women to show up, well, you see where we’re going with this. Working on it.

Speaking of which, and we hope investors on the list are listening: we’ve been to a number of pitch events, investors’ open hours, etc. Seems to us a much better plan than the usual VC conferences where they primarily seem to talk to each other – and listen to the few finalist startups who are presenting – would be to host more informal VC pitch events. Why don’t VCs host happy hours, where people are more relaxed, and it’s much easier to talk to a potential investor – or investee – in a more casual setting. Might be a good formula: put VCs and entrepreneurs in a bar and just add water. Or some such beverage. Just a thought . We’ll work on it and if any of you have any thoughts on it – email us at hello@startuponestop.com.

Mark your calendars and we’re giving you a lot of lead time this time: next barbeque is scheduled for Bastille Day – July 14, once again sponsored by 1099partners.com and we hope to see you there. Anyway, just a head’s up and that’s then and this is now, which means, of course, that help is on the way…
