Event description

Description

Startup Matchup is a structured networking event to help tech startups matchup with skilled individuals and quality resources from the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Silicon Valley.

At this event you will meet and network with:

- Founders looking for CoFounders

- Investors looking for quality early-stage startups.

- Developers and engineers looking to work with interesting startups.

- Marketers, designers and business developers who want to work with startups.

- Entrepreneurs looking for their next big idea or startup to join.

- Skilled persons in the corporate world who want to build their entrepreneurial network or join a startup.

Come to this event ready to GIVE just as much as you GET.

The network effect of all attendees, helping one another, magnifies the total reach and increases the chances of finding what you are looking for.

You must purchase a ticket to attend. Free Parking is Available. Free Food, beer and wine are provided.

SPACE IS LIMITED.

THE STARTUP MATCHUP FORMAT:

1) The Startup Matchup event starts with each attendee giving a quick 30-second introduction to the group, providing your:

  • Who you are (your name)
  • What you do (company you work for & title)
  • What you are looking for
  • How you can help others

For example, people might have a need for a technical cofounder, need advice regarding how best to set-up a crowd funding campaign, a referral to a reasonably priced startup lawyer, a "Cassandra noSQL" database developer, or referrals to a good social marketing consultant...etc.

2) As you listen to each attendee's introductions, take note and think about the needs each have and whether you could help. Each chair will have a stack of blank business cards and a pen. During the general networking session, seek out individuals that you could help and if appropriate write-down information on the blank business cards and exchange info. This is a good ice-breaker and reason to start a conversation.

As you seek out individuals to potentially provide help, you in-turn will be sought out and engaged with by others willing to help you. This is part of the GIVE and GET relationship that produces valuable connections and a quality networking event for all.
