The First Of The TC Mini Meet-Ups: DC, Norfolk, and Richmond
Here we go! After a bit of back and forth, I've decided to run the TCVA mini-meetups in DC-Norfolk-Richmond order. We have some sponsors on tap and hopefully we can have a good time and get the word out about the VA tech corridor. Virginia, after all, is for entrepreneurs (and lovers). This isn't a boring panel discussion or wonkathon - this is a networking event and I want you guys to let me know what you're working on. I'll be available to chat along with TC writer Jordan Crook for the entire evening so have your iPads loaded with a pitch deck and a small card containing your website and pertinent info. Don't bring a packet of papers. I'll just lose it. Special thanks to folks in Richmond and Norfolk for donating their office spaces for our nefarious ends. Follow me @johnbiggs for updates during the evening. So here's how it's going down:
