Boston Web Innovators Meetup – Nov 8th

Last month, Rags Gupta and I put together a very informal meetup of like-minded individuals interested in internet / Web2.0 / mobile innovation based in the Boston/Cambridge area. Attendees included entrepreneurs (both self-funded & VC-backed), a few VCs, and a number of forward-thinking people excited about the space. Based on the excitement from that get-together, I am organizing another one and spreading the word via my blog here. All who are interested in attending are welcome and encouraged to invite others to join as well.

Boston Web Innovators Meetup
November 8th 2005 @ 6:30pm
Location in Cambridge TBD, depending on attendee interest
Please RSVP on this wiki: http://www.seedwiki.com/wiki/bostonweb/

This event is going to be a slightly more structured than the previous one. For example, to start off, we are planning on having a few self-funded start-ups give a five minute demo. If you are interested in presenting, please e-mail me.

I’ll also post an update with additional details on this blog, and am looking forward to seeing everyone in two weeks.

(Hat tip to the folks over at TechCrunch for what looks to have become a good model for organizing events like these.)
