We’re going to try to be more efficient in how we manage events and job listings on StartupCafe.
Job listings: add them to workinstartups.com – and mark them as Edinburgh – and you can view them on our ‘Jobs’ tab.
Also, if you’re launching something or got some exciting news, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 5 mins version:
As you’ve probably noticed, things at StartupCafe have gone a bit quiet in the past few weeks.
To be honest, it’s just been a case where we’ve all been snowed down with work or been away on hols over the past few weeks. But as the semester starts again and the University is waking with activity, we’ll be kick-starting our activities.
We really want to spend more time adding events and covering the different startups in Edinburgh – things have grown so much since we started two years ago! – but in case you didn’t know, StartupCafe is only a sideline thing that we do, which we don’t make any money from. We really don’t want to be the bottleneck from reaching the rest of the community.
To help manage the day-to-day admin (which is growing), there’s a few changes we’re making, and we’d really appreciate it if you can help us by contributing through these channels.
Edinburgh has so many tech/startup/social media related events that there’s something going on every week.
Rather than having our own calendar, we’re going to add any events we hear about on the Open Tech Calendar. The calendar is available for anyone to contribute.
That way, if you want to see what events are going on this week, you can just add the calendar onto your Gcal.
To see what’s going on that week, view the agenda list on our Events tab.
We often get asked to post job requests on the blog. We’re more than happy to do this, but as you can imagine, it gets quite cumbersome if we get a lot of requests.
Rather than our own platform, we encourage you to post the job listing at workinstartups.com (Seedcamp uses this!) and mark the location as Edinburgh. We know this isn’t ideal since there are startups outside of Edinburgh – and we’re hoping to be able to include the whole of Scotland soon – so watch this space!
We would really appreciate you – people in this awesome community – helping to make this community even better by using these tools so that we can spend more time on covering the startups and writing new content. Thank you!
