An Introduction to TechBreakfast and Why You Should Care

I want to introduce you to TechBreakfast, a rapidly growing meetup group that hosts events in Baltimore, Columbia, DC, and Northern VA.  So why the introduction? Don't you already have enough Meetup groups to go to? DC2 has at least two good reasons for doing so. First, TechBreakfast demos early stage technology companies from the area. While entrepreneurship and data are different, these two subjects are closely related and the data revolution probably would not be happening if it weren't for the tech startup scene.  Thus, we thought you might just be interested in this area.  While potentially relevant content is a good start, we don't mention any and all tech meetups that come our way. In this writer's humble opinion, TechBreakfast is one of the best run and enjoyable meetups that I have been to ... and I have been to hundreds such events. Keep reading if you want to learn more and discover some exciting upcoming events.

Want to see cool new technology? Want to interact with other cool techies, startups, and business folks? Have some time in the morning? Then come to TechBreakfast, a monthly breakfast in Baltimore, Columbia, DC, and Northern Virginia where entrepreneurs, techies, developers, designers, business people, and interested people see showcases on cool new technology in a demo format and interact with each other . "Show and Tell for Adults" is what we usually say. No boring presentations or speakers who drone on. This is a "show and tell" format where we tell people to show me, don't tell meabout the great things they are working on. Each TechBreakfast begins at 8:00am and goes until 10AM (although people usually hang around later).  This event is FREE! Thank our sponsors when you see them!

  • Fri. Mar. 1, 2013: Insurance BizWorkshop - Just because you are a startup or a small business doesn't mean that things can't go wrong. And when those things go wrong... they can really go wrong. The beauty of insurance is that it's there to protect you when things go wrong. And it doesn't always need to cost an arm and a leg. In the Insurance BizWorkshop on March 1, 2013, we'll bring one of the area's most advanced and notable firms in the insurance field to help you figure out what you need, how little or much coverage you need to cover those risks, and how to save a bundle doing it. Indeed, cover your butt for pennies on the dollar. Cost is $15 if you register by Feb. 27, 2013. More information and register at http://www.meetup.com/BizWorkshop/events/105199632/.
