Open Coffee 2.0 @ Sola Cafe
Nov 5 @ 7:00 am – 10:00 am

Open coffee group for anyone interested in entrepreneurship.

Some details on the principles of the Open Coffee concept from the original blog post that got it started:

What is it?
This is an attempt to establish recognized, open and regular meeting places where entrepreneurs can meet with investors (and anyone else who fancies coming along) in a totally informal setting.

The key is a regular place and a regular time – it’s not important who comes along, some days it might be no one – just that people know if they want to meet, this is the time and this is the place.

We want to create some density for people — a few places where people know they can meet or bump into others.

Something that can be replicated anywhere else at little or no cost — though we do want to build a list of all the places (wiki to come) where entrepreneurs can meet and know people might be around for them to talk with.

Thanks to Tiffany Lach and Sola Cafe for hosting this event!
