I started a new meetup, Santiago Infotech Start-Up, that is a combination of Huevapi and Start-Up Chile. Like Huevapi, there is no government involvement, so participants will be free to eat pizza and drink beer. Like Start-Up Chile, it will cater to tech start-ups and be conducted in English. Alcohol consumption will not be discouraged or encouraged.
The group will evolve as it becomes clear what members want, but we will start by presenting 1-3 speakers at each meeting who will describe their businesses, the challenges they have overcome, and what they hope to achieve. Each speaker will use 5-20 minutes and accept questions, comments, and help from the audience.
The first meeting will be at the California Cantina on the second floor on Tuesday, Feb. 1 at 6:30 PM. I hope to see you there!
