November 5, 2013

After a bit of a break this year, we’re happy to announce that we’ve partnered up with the Chamber for next week’s Entrepreneur Expo. The event will bring together a diverse group of our city’s entrepreneurs for casual drinks and startup talk.

The Expo’s speakers will include Matt Fowler (founder and CEO of Solid Earth), Glenn Clayton (founder and President of Appleton Learning) and Adam Pearson (founder and CEO of Learning Earnings). Each will share their personal stories of founding and growing a local technology business. Panelists will also take questions from the audience to keep the discussion interactive and exploratory.

Below is the loose agenda for the event next week. Space is limited, so register now! For more information, contact Karessa Acosta at kacosta@hsvchamber.org or 256.535.2083. We look forward to seeing you there! Please don’t forget to register for your nametag and free drink.

5:30 – 6:00                      Networking / Check In
6:00 – 7:00                     Panel Discussion and Q&A
7:00 – 8:00                     SUDS

On a separate note, a group of local entrepreneurs has started meeting every other Friday morning for coffee and casual startup talk. The group is focused on networking the local technology community and is called Open Tech Coffee. Their next gathering is next Friday morning the 15th at 7:45am in Room 114 of the UAH Business School.  To learn more, you can follow them on Twitter @OpenTechCoffee or check out their website, which will be launched later this week, at www.opentechcoffee.com

Thanks to the nearly 70 folks who braved the weather and made it out for SUDS on Tuesday. A few photos from the gathering can be found here. A special thanks to our presenters and our sponsors for helping make the night a success. The strong show of support has us excited about the new event format and our next event in April.

We’ll follow up with more details in March related to the next event, but please go ahead and mark your calendars now for April 16th. We’re tossing around ideas for a panel discussion and we’d love your input deciding on a topic. Please send us ideas at huntsvillesuds@gmail.com

Stay safe in this slippery weather!

Happy New Year! SUDS on the 15th

January 2, 2013

We’re looking forward to great things in 2013. We’re going to shift to quarterly events this year so we can continue bringing together the area’s most active entrepreneurs, technologists, investors and folks interested in the local startup scene. We’d like to think of SUDS as a casual way to grab a drink and knock out 3-4 conversations in an hour that you’d otherwise have to schedule 3-4 separate meetings to accommodate.

Our first get together in 2013 will be at the loft at Amendment XXI on January 15th. Several groups here in town have stepped up to sponsor the event, so we’re happy to offer complimentary heavy hors d’oeuvres. To help us plan for food, please take a few seconds to register for the event here. With your registration, you’ll also receive a printed name tag and a ticket for a free drink.

Also new to the 2013 SUDS format will be a small amount of structure—each quarter, we’ll pull together a short program to add fresh content to the mix. This quarter, three local startups— Straight to Ale, transOMIC technologies and ArchPatent – will each take 10-15 minutes to tell their founder’s story.

Here’s the loose agenda for the 15th:

5:30 – 6:15                       Networking
6:15 – 7:00                      Founders’ Stories
7:00 – 8:00                     Networking

We look forward to seeing you on the 15th. Please don’t forget to register for your nametag and free drink.

Huntsville SUDS in 2013

November 8, 2012
by

With the holidays coming up, we’re going to take off November and December and kickoff 2013 with a bang in January!

We’ll circulate more details as they’re confirmed, but next year we’re going to experiment with the structure of SUDS to continue offering valuable networking events for Huntsville’s startup community.  Some of the changes we’re currently considering for next year:

  • Adding 15-20 minutes of content to each event (startup pitches, investor presentations, guest speakers, etc.)
  • Shifting from monthly to quarterly gatherings
  • Adding food to the mix

If you have any additional ideas for ways to improve our events, we’d love to hear from you in the comments below or at huntsvillesuds@gmail.com. We look forward to seeing you in 2013!
