Open Coffee 2.0 @ Sola Cafe
Sep 17 @ 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.
