Yesterday we hosted our fourth Open Coffee Club meeting – a group organized by Aaron Tainter and Alan Veeck of Meakem Becker Venture Capital. Alan speaks to the goals of Open Coffee Club in this post on his blog, Pittsburgh Ventures. The turnout was great, as can be seen in the picture. We had a nice mix of entrepreneurs (seasoned, new, and wannabes), investors, and service providers all mingling with each other. One of the attendees texted me, “good networking” after the event and I would agree: I saw a lot of familiar faces but many new faces and had an opportunity to speak with many of the attendees. Justin Kownacki – self-proclaimed social media explorer – discussed his experience at the event in this post on his blog, Cafe Witness.
In conjunction with the Open Coffee Club event, we announced our second group of AlphaLab companies. You can read more about the new AlphaLab companies here. We are excited to work with the six companies and look forward to a busy twenty weeks!
