This morning we held our 2nd Montreal Tech Entrepreneur Breakfast and we had a solid turnout. Lots of new faces which was great to see, and some old ones too.
A few people to check out:
- Carl Mercier
- Mat Balez
- Smart Initiatives – Kristina Tomaz-Young
- Code Genome – Benjamin Thouret
- MoreIdeas, Inc. – Thomas Jelonek
Just a handful of the people I connected with today. I didn’t get a chance to speak with everyone and I think that’s the fatal flaw of the location — it doesn’t lend itself to moving around, sitting in different places and connecting with more people. Once you sit and your food is brought you’re a bit stuck.
So I’m looking for alternatives — any ideas?
A couple of people suggested a buffet-style place where roaming is easier, or a more lounge-like / cafe atmosphere where it’s less about sitting and eating and more about socializing.
I’m open to any suggestions people might have.
The next Montreal Tech Entrepreneur Breakfast will be on Tuesday, April 10th at 8am. So we’ve got some time to pick a better location.
I’m also going to bring a notebook with me for everyone to write their contact info and blog info (like they do at Yulblog) so I can post a list of people that came with their links and start to build out a solid list of Montreal bloggers.
If you came this morning, thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed yourself. And we’ll see you April 10th.
