… However, I would like to introduce a concept around it. I don’t want people to think this is just a meetup for alcoholics
I will give the opportunity for anyone who is interested to pitch their potential business/startup ideas in less than 3 min (there will be a timer) and with no more than 3-4 pitches per night. I want this to be an exercise for the mind, to tickle your intellect. It is by brainstorming rough business ideas often with other experts in this industry that maybe one day you will come up with the perfect business idea.
So this could be a very rough business idea for which you just want to initiate some brainstorming and get people’s advice or ideas… or you could talk about your existing businesses for which you need some advice, funding, need to hire a designer or developer, etc. Feel free to bring slides if you have but this is really not mandatory. We will have a small projector and mic.
Then anyone else will be free to comment, give feedback and brainstorm around this idea or concept.
Just to give you an idea, pitches could follow this format:
** What problem are you trying to solve?
** What is your solution?
** What do you know about the market? Who’s your audience, competitors? Etc.
** How do you plan to monetize it?
** How are you going to market or promote it?
** What do you need from this meetup group? (e.g. General Feedback? Designer? Developer? Funding? A tap on the shoulder?…)
Eventually some people might end up teaming up together and making it a real business in the end. This group has all the resources you need (from designers to developers to entrepreneurs…)… it would be a shame not to take advantage of that.
I actually have one idea already, probably not a business I would want to build myself but just want to talk about it and see what you guys think about it, just for brainstorming purposes.
