TECH cocktail Boston: A Wicked Good Time

Posted on September 7, 2007

TECH cocktail BostonNow that was a party. I would estimate that the vast majority of the 500+ people who RSVPed came out which is great for any event but seeing that this was the first Boston TECH cocktail it was even more of an accomplishment.

Of course we all know quality not quantity is key and the folks that came to TECH cocktail Boston were all top quality. I think just about every Boston area start-up had at least one of their team present and most of the top VCs came out to show their support as well.

Of course none of this success would have been possible without the top notch TECH cocktail Boston crew. In no particular order here are the guys you need to thank for last night:

Peter Glyman - Geezeo

Shawn Ward - Geezeo

Jay Meattle - Compete.com

Brian Balfour - ZoomInfo

Those guys also helped to raise the money that paid for all the drinks and food and believe me when I say that the tab wasn’t cheap! A huge thanks is due for our sponsors:

Compete.com

Geezeo

ZoomInfo

North Bridge Venture Partners

As always we had some really sweet demos going on around the room. We really appreciated Geezeo, Compete.com, ZoomInfo, Party Resume, Viveo and Fafarazzi for coming out and showing off that they have been working on. If you’re interested in demoing at TECH cocktail Boston 2 please shoot me a note (eric [at] ericjohnolson.com).

I’d also like to thank Vroop, makers of the Liveboard, for coming out and auctioning off two Liveboards. All the proceeds from the auction went to the Jimmy Fund to help with the flight against cancer.

We’re almost there - only a few more thanks to go!

Thanks to Greg from Blue Sky Factory for the killer hollywood-style backdrop near the sign-in table.

Last but certainly not least I just want to thank everyone that came out to the event as you all make it what it is. We purposely go light on structure in order to keep the room flowing but that means things only work well when the crowd moves around on their own and engages new folks which you all did very well.

Please check out the photos and subscribe to the TECH cocktail Boston feed to be updated on future events, job openenings in the community and other events happening around Boston as we work to get another event together for you.

Thanks again guys! I couldn’t have dreamed of a better homecoming.
