First meeting of OpenCoffee Club
It's happening tomorrow in London from 10-12 in Starbucks inside Esprit, which is at 178-182 Regent St.
Thanks to everyone for your great comments and positive feedback so far.
There seems to be an interesting crowd coming along tomorrow from VCs & investors like Nic (Esprit Capital - not fashion), Avid (Accel), Robin (TAG) to entrepreneurs like Michael (Firebox, MindCandy), Phil (Crowdstorm, Kelkoo UK), Judith (Second Chance Tuesday), Richard & Damon (Zebtab), James (Studentbeans), Joel (Messagr) and the recently funded Walid (TrustedPlaces) as well as Sam Sethi, folks from Skype and top-notch developers.
We don't really know what to expect, but it's exciting that people are coming along and we'll have a chance to meet and chat about whatever is on people's minds.
Separately we have OpenCoffee Clubs popping up in Ireland and Croatia - plus I'm really excited to be working with Brad Feld (Mobius) who will be hosting a club in Colorado and helping me spread the word among the VC blogging community on his Feedburner network.
We'll be pulling together a wiki in the coming weeks - and already some great people have registered (www.opencoffee.info and www.opencoffee.biz), kindly offering to donate time and energy into helping to foster the community. I've registered opencoffeeclub.com and .org - so anyone who's interested in helping out and pulling OpenCoffee resources together, please let me know.
Looking forward to seeing people tomorrow and helping to grow the OpenCoffee movement.
