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 and Jordan @jordanrcrook for updates during the evening.
So here’s how it’s going down:
Monday, April 9 – DC – RFD – 810 7th St NW – 6pm-10pm (??) – Our first event will be at RFD in NW. These guys have a huge selection of beers on tap and, if we play our cards right, we’ll have a few hours of open bar. If you haven’t RSVPed hop over to Plancast or email me at email@example.com with the subject “RSVP DC.” Try to include a rough headcount.
Our first sponsors are HomeSnap by Sawbuck, Canvas.co and Create Digital.
Tuesday, April 10 – Norfolk – We Are Titans Offices – 259 Granby St 3rd Floor – 6pm-10pm – We will begin the night at the We Are The Titans offices, kindly provided by a team of titans who work there, and the perhaps we can move to another location later. Please RSVP hereor email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “RSVP NORFOLK.” Try to include a rough headcount. We are also looking for sponsors, so please let me know in a separate, non RSVP email if you’re interested.
Here’s a little bit about our first Norfolk sponsor:
Wednesday, April 11 – Richmond – SnagAJob HQ – 6pm-10pm – 4851 Lake Brook Dr – Finally, we’ll meet in Glen Allen, outside of Richmond, for our final meet-up.
