    Hey Mike, you forgot Web.Start again! :)

  • Ethan Myers

    Sorry this is not very inspiring. The events are good to chat and meet but “show me the money”. Many startup companies I know are desperate for short term funding or next round funding and the well is dry. Money is going to the same old, same old. i.e investors are putting money back into their portfolio companies e.g Truphone but not much new investment is happening and these events interesting as they maybe are not going to provide a solution.

    The jury is still out on seedcamp.

  • Mike Butcher

    Ethan – You’re a bit of a dull old stick in the mud aren’t you? I’m putting up the events that are crossovers between things interesting for developers who create startups (e.g. BarCamp) which are NOT about funding, and the one’s that are (e.g. DrinkTank, Next08). If you can be bother to lift your mouse and click on the previous listing you’ll find TMT Ventures, STING, London Investment Marketplace, and Being Digital among others – all investment oriented.
