Technology Events, Promotion & Marketing
Prepared by: Cris Kerwin Pabuaya
Hi everyone,
Well it has been one busy week here as we gear up to next Wednesday’s 
TechStartupJobsFair at the Innovation Warehouse.There will be jobs for developers, designers, marketers, sales people, product managers, testers... you name it. Thank you to everyone who has gotinvolved in making the fair happen. By this time next week we hope to have lots of newconnections made and for some of you to be working on some great new projects soon.Massive thanks also to everyone who has volunteered to help with our meetups, you cannotimagine how appreciative I am to receive thirteen responses after asking the question lastweek. You know who you are and I look forward to helping you become central in the LSRcommunity.
Regarding the poll last week, while I can’t claim there has been a stampede to answer thequestion of “do you think that doing business in 2012 will be easier or more difficult for youthan in 2011”, we do have a marginal
winner: most of you think it’ll be easier. Now let’s see
what the reality brings.
On that note, we’ve organised a new
Startup Masterclass to help inform those of you
considering or already looking for Angel or VC funding this year. You’ll hear from Oct
Ventures’ Alan Wallace and Andrey Kessel, investor and Springboard mentor as well as
Mariko Tokioka from Quipper who closed a seed round in November 2011.And, finally, a reminder that you can now follow our new Twitter handle @techmeetupslsr for the latest news and events for London's tech sector.Wrap up warm, the Siberian cold is coming!Warm regards,OlgaLondon Silicon Roundabout Meetup Group
Technology Events, Promotion & Marketing
January 12, 2012For decades, Silicon Valley has been synonymous with innovation. It is difficult to
dispute this claim given that it’s the home to technology and Internet giants such asApple, Google, and Facebook. While it hasn’t lost its staying power, other hotspots
for entrepreneurship and technology have emerged over the past ten years, in
particular, New York’s “Silicon Alley”.
January 12, 2012Ticonderoga Securities analyst Brian White made Apple his top pick in 2011 and thestock was his top performer, up 26% during his coverage. This year, Apple remains
his top stock pick as a trio of new products is set to extend Apple’s lead in the new
r: iTV, a “iPad mini” and the iPhone 5.
January 11, 2012Apologies to you Mayan calendar believers, I d
idn’t mean to alarm you with thetitle. 2012 won’t be the year that random Durham entrepreneurs spontaneously
although that could happen, it’s highly unlikely. I’ll make it up to you by
not making an easy joke at your expense.
