Earlier this year Saul Klein sent me an email about an idea he had to create a meeting spot for entrepreneurs and VCs in a community to get together on a regular basis. Saul’s idea was that this would be like a “Coffee Club” – same location and time on a weekly / bi-weekly basis. I responded that I thought it was a cool idea and my partner Jason decided to help set one up in Boulder. Saul subsequently launched OpenCoffee Club which is sprouting up in a bunch of cities around the world.
Saul’s vision was simple: “the key is a regular place and a regular time – it’s not important who comes along, some days it might be no one – just that people know if they want to meet, this is the time and this is the place.”
So – the Boulder OpenCoffee Club’s regular place is Amante Coffee at 1035 Walnut St, Boulder, CO 80302 and the regular time is every other Tuesday starting April 10 from 8am to 9:30am. If you are interested, sign up on the Upcoming site. Also – join the OpenCoffee Club Boulder social network.
Looking forward to seeing you sometime.
