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!
Which brings us to – ‘Find A Cofounder II’ – happening on July 26 at the Hudson Terrace and brought to you by Entrepreneurs Roundtable and StartupOneStop.com.
