All the chatter that has been going on online sure has the early stage entrepreneurial group buzzing. About 40 or so showed up for Open Coffee yesterday at Tech Square. Heck, there were even at least two investors in the mix (Greg Foster of NMP and Clark Gilder) and at least one company (I ain’t saying) that attended was talking raising venture capital. I am expecting to see an equally energetic crowd at Startup Drinks this evening at Fado.
Given all this activity Alan Taetle and I have decided to hold off on the Open VC gathering he announced in the comments over the weekend. ATDC wants to officially get involved and work with Alan, other investors, and the entrepreneurial community to more comprehensively have an impact in moving things forward. Once that gets in place it will be announced over on PeachSeedz.
If you have any constructive thoughts (please no more self flagellation) leave them in the comments. Or if you think they are better shared face to face I am now open on 2 this Friday and may just cruise over to Starbucks and be MOOF if you want some quiet conversation.
