3282We're getting very busy for local events -- and I haven't had the time to announce new events. Today 6pm is co-founders lounge, at Notman House (51 Sherbrooke west), an event dedicated for technology entrepreneurs, where you can meet passionate programmers wanting to build their own product, and smart business entrepreneurs, experts in marketing and social media. The goal? Get to inspire someone... a special someone that might be your next co-founder.
We're doing this event specifically for those who have a hard time after they get their initial idea, i.e. where do I go from here.
See this video to get a feel of the event:
As you can see, we are using the speed dating format, which allows you to meet everyone. It's intense, fun and at the same time more productive than any networking event you have been to.

3250This last tuesday, we had LawyersLounge
, the first of its kind in Montréal. The goal was simple: raise awareness of legal issues that tech entrepreneurs have to go through, and at the same time, connect with practising lawyers willing to reach out to the community.
Like accountants and other professionals who support tech entrepreneurs (VCs?), lawyers solve specific problems that require education, experience and savviness to find the right structure, and help the company save time & money. Many technology entrepreneurs, especially those who come from a heavy engineering background, or first-time entrepreneurs, are tempted to shy away from legal issues, perhaps by lack of understanding, perhaps fearing the costs associated with legal counsel, or perhaps with a conviction that all available time and resources should be allocated to product design and development. And they can choose freely to do so, but at their own expense & peril, as the Read more…
