Austin FD'ers meetup?

It's been another week at my full-time job. Nobody here seems interested in
startup topics or growth strategies. A real bummer.

So... who's interested in an Austin meetup with the goal of stress-testing
each other's ideas? Any takers?

Now thats a great idea, shame I'm in SF. I'd love to recreate this in the Bay Area.

Let me know!

Hi Brian,

At my job people talk all the time about starting a business - but few ever do. The reason is usually that you leave behind a very cushy job for the unknown that you ever get serious funding. Angel funds is coffee money for people in mid career. They pay this with half a bonus check themselves. But it does not pay for your mortgage, kid's schooling and so on.

We had a few spin-offs in the last 10 years but each started out with 8-figures - I am assuming some backend strategic deals.

The big question is how can you bridge that gap. I am full of ideas around networking, security, telecommunications - my core topics. I am also highly interested in mobility and cloud. Though traveling a lot, I am right here in Austin. Happy to brainstorm with you and other.

Lots of interesting feedback... it sounds like 5-6 Austin residents would
like to get together. How about Saturday, 10am, Central Market (Lamar/38th)
lunch area?

PS - Bay Area FD'ers: any time you're in Austin, give us a shout. We'll
have a breakfast taco throwdown. :-)

I'm down as well, Brian. Saturday, 10am, at Central Market sounds great.

Hi Brian,

I'd also like to join on Saturday, have to check with the family first, though, as I am just returning from a business trip.

Austin FD'ers, a quick reminder.

I'll be at Central Market, 10am Saturday should any of you brave souls wish
to meet. Nothing formal - merely some brainstorming on how to proceed.
We'll have a followup for our friends who are traveling for the holidays.

Best,
Brian
