Startup Drinks February

The last Wednesday of the month comes around faster than you realise and suddenly, it’s time for Startup Drinks again!  January’s drinks was pretty gregarious and good fun, which can only be good for business.  Keep encouraging those who need to come to Startup Drinks this Wednesday, February 25 at Brutopia from 5:30pm until whenever.

I’m putting out a challenge to all who read this: if you’re a senior programmer looking for work (or know someone who fits this description), look for Robin from Flow and introduce yourself!  We’re looking for senior software developer for one of our clients and I’d love to have a chat over a pint.

Registrations are open at TechEntreprise!

See you there,

StartupDrinks Jan 28 – Mixing Startups with Pleasure

Networking, community building, socializing – call it what you will – it’s what we’re doing.

Raymond told me about an interesting observation on the part of some Torontonian delegates at Startup Empire last year. By their accounting, one thing the Montreal tech community is definitely doing right is staying connected through regular meetups and events. Montrealers are famously sociable so I guess it’s not surprising but it’s nice to know it’s not gone unnoticed. Judging from the ebullient mood and strong turnout to CelebrateCamp last month – as well as the calls to do it again – I think we’ve got some momentum.

Since November last year, Flow Ventures has been working with Heri on Startup Drinks for the sole purpose of making sure we’re doing our part to keep the community wheels in motion. The next one is slated for Wednesday, 28 January at Brutopia from 5:30pm.

For the uninitiated, Startup Drinks was started by Heri and Alok as a pretext for getting people working in technology in the same room to have an informal drink and generally shoot the breeze. I went to my first Startup Drinks on a balmy June evening at Cafe des Eclusiers and was impressed by the lighthearted, spirited conversation. Now, you don’t necessarily have work at a startup; it’s just called that.

Startup Drinks is open to anyone who wants to get a snapshot of what’s going in the scene; who’s working on what and where. The way I see it, the more diversity of perspectives, the better: you could be a student of computer science, a programmer working for a large corporation or someone like me who is focused on administration. Everyone has a unique perspective worth exploring over a pint. If you want to come, make sure to REGISTER over at!
