At some point, Jeff suggested that we start inviting a broader set of people involved in, or at least interested in, entrepreneurship in Boulder. We did so, and 'officially' formed the Entrepreneur's Martini Group. (Someday, in a future post, I'll describe my fondness for the classic martini.) The group has now grown to an invitation list of about 25, and we typically get 12-18 at any event. We meet every 6-8 weeks at a local watering hole.
I enjoy these meetings immensely, because I get very jazzed by the creative energy of these people. Some that have attended in the past include:
- Pete Rast, founder of Stratasearch, a stock technical analysis software tool
- Pawel Osiczko and John Horne, who together are a fountain of business ideas and are bound to eventually find the one that works for them
- Scott Dalgleish, who, along with his wife Susan (who should also attend in the future), founded Dragonfly Innovations
- Steve Cox, formerly engineering director of Crosswalk but who is now starting something involved with multiprocessor ICs
- Andrew Funk, who started C-Port, an IC company that was acquired by Motorola, a few years ago and is currently looking for the next opportunity
- John Ives, founder of a market prediction company (I'm not sure how public he is about the company, yet)
