Thanks to Samuel Huleatt who informed me of a pretty cool event taking place in DC this Friday morning. The first OpenCoffee Club in DC will be taking place Friday from 9am to 11am at Caribou Coffee on 17th and L. Luckily this is next door to my office at Fleishman-Hillard so I will be in attendance. After checking out the OpenCoffee Club website I found out what the event is about.
The OpenCoffee Club was started to encourage entrepreneurs, developers and investors to organise real-world informal meetups to chat, network and grow.
It definitely sounds like my type of event. While they would like to have demonstrations I’m not sure how many demonstrations will be taking place in a Caribou Coffee on a Friday morning. Either way I am definitely looking forward to checking it out. If you are in the area then I highly suggest you stop by as well. Also, if you are interested in local events for entrepreneurs, investors, and tech enthusiasts then check out the upcoming Tech Cocktail event that I am co-hosting with Frank Gruber next Thursday. If you would like to sign up then head on over to the registration form now! There are only a few spots left so if you are interested then you should sign up ASAP. At the beginning of next week we will be announcing all of the final details about the companies demoing and sponsers.
