Startup Rockstars!

Last night I went to a Startup Rockstars event at the Affinity Lab in Adams Morgan. Several men talked about their new businesses. Last time I went to a Startup Rockstars talk, the most solid business model, with numbers to prove it, was presented by a young woman.
There were several interesting ideas discussed: A collaborative writing app, a news footage video-sharing platform, an activist website, a phone map app, and a creative, disorganized guy who did a lot of name-dropping. Actually, they all made beautiful, impressive presentations that made their ideas sound fancier than I described them. But I think that was all slick marketing. Regardless, I thought it was great that these guys were not only coming up with great ideas, but implementing them and creating their own businesses out of them.

  1. Thanks Kady for mentioning my blog post in your email! http://www.meetup.com/socialweb/

    I always like attending these events. And writing snarky blog posts. Lately I’ve been seeing people I’ve met at Startup Rockstars at other events! I love hearing about everyone’s creative ideas.
