Palo Alto's OpenCoffee Club
There are so many European entrepreneurs I speak to and meet who want to spend time in Silicon Valley - to visit, to work, to live - but they don't know how to get plugged in once they arrive.
So in the spirit of opening things up, Keith Teare will be hosting a weekly Palo Alto OpenCoffee Club on Tuesday between 830-100 at Deuce France in the Town & Country Village close to the intersection of El Camino Real & Embarcadero.
Keith is a serial entrepreneur and has been a founder on both sides of the Atlantic (easynet in the UK and now edgeio in SV), so he has a perfect perspective on the challenges and opportunities for folks coming new to the Valley and building teams, raising money etc. He's also a partner in Techcrunch so he's pretty plugged into what's going on in the startup scene.
There are a huge amount of startup events in the Valley, so the focus of the Palo Alto OpenCoffee Club is very much to help connect people from outside SV get connected in, but hopefully the informal nature of OpenCoffee will extend beyond this over time.
For now, if you're planning to travel to the Valley and are interested in the startup scene, pop by and say hello to Keith.
