Monthly meetup of startups and folks interested in mobile, chatting over a great lunch at Centotre. This month’s discussion will be surrounding the new generation of multi-touch devices, including but not limited to the iPad… oooh I sense a good debate! It’s always impressively productive and insightful (and tasty too). You need to book your ticket ahead of time (£12.05 incl lunch).
Learn ‘Networking My Way’ from 12 year old Gregor Campbell, who has the business world mastered at a remarkably young age. Then Neil Campbell, founder of Red Cherry Marketing, will offer insight on the top 10 marketing mistakes in order to help entrepreneurs make the most of their marketing and communications efforts. Having worked as a Consultant at HealthSystems Group and Healthcare Business Manager (Scotland & Ireland) at Panasonic Computer Products Europe, Neil’s particular expertise is in healthcare marketing and web 2.0 social media marketing. As usual, this E-Club event is free and open to all, with free wine/crisps afterward.
This week, Brian Halliday of Influence Marketing will talk about developing measurable marketing strategies and providing the right mindset and interpersonal skills to gain maximum success. He draws on his 25 years of experience being a stage hypnotist to get to the bottom of his clients’ issues. The Launch Lab is a weekly session geared toward anyone who owns or is starting their own business. A highly varied group of energetic, intelligent people gather to exchange ideas, share critiques and encouragement, and feed each others’ vitality. It’s a wonderful bunch of folks!
Free talk from the founder of nCipher, Alex van Someren, offering one of the best UK tech startup stories ever told (word on the street!). The audience will be massive with folks from Informatics, E-Club, ScotlandIS, and Winning Entrepreneurs… book your free place online so you have a seat.
EIE is the annual showcase of the hottest startups and spinouts in computer science and informatics, organised by Informatics Ventures. There will be an exhibition of 50 start-ups and spin-outs in the Informatics space (including BioTech, CleanTech, Social Media, Gaming and Mobile), as well as an interactive panel discussion featuring globally leading VCs and scientists (2 Anne Glovers, Ann Budge, and Anne Johnson… love it!). Will be a very large event attended by startups, investors, government bodies, and press, but I’m sorry to say this one’s invite only. I’ll be beheaded if I try to offer tips of how to sneak in.
Hallelujah TechCrunch is coming to Edinburgh! Let’s show them what Scotland has to offer the startup world (Mike Butcher has yet to be convinced, we’ve got to prove ourselves!), and hear from a packed lineup of intelligent speakers. Hey, Techfluff.tv will be covering it! You’ve got to invest in a ticket… £60, but should be a great chance for Edinburgh to gain visibility on the European tech map. After party at Vodka Rev for anyone with a TechCrunch ticket!
Yes, it is carrying on alongside TechCrunch Edinburgh as some people just prefer the price of ‘free’… A monthly gathering for anyone in the programming or tech startup scene – developers, programmers, entrepreneurs, students, community members, and curious bystanders. This week’s talks include spatial databases, from Jo Walsh, and other impromptu presentations. Plus there will be free pizza and beer =). No RSVP or tickets needed, it’s a very open and inviting bunch.
If you’ve been at events Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, catch your breath while you can! Do make time to follow up with folks from EIEIO and beyond as well. And if this doesn’t apply to you, well, I guess you can just keep working…
Lovely bunch of digital media, social media, and just generally fun folks chatting away and making new friends. The best way to start your Friday, and well worth the early arrival (you can trickle in 8-9am if that helps). It’s hard to get out of bed, but whenever I manage I’m always so happy I went!
