I just got back from my first Seattle Open Coffee at Louisa’s on Eastlake. The way I understand it, SOC was started last year by Andy Sack as a way to allow local tech entrepreneur types to connect in an informal setting, and it seems like a great idea.
This morning I ran into a great guy I worked for seven or eight years ago at a dot-com, but had barely seen since. He’s already started and sold another company or two in the interim period. I also met a relative newcomer to the Northwest who is with Funding Universe. They are trying to get programs going that bring together entrepreneurs and investors.
I should have taken a picture. There was about 15 or 20 people at this morning’s gathering, and the energy was great. I’m definitely planning on going again in the future!
