Thank you to everyone who came out to make TECH cocktail 2 such a good time. We had over 350+ guests, some of which were from Google, Orbitz, Cars.com, FeedBurner, Apartments.com, AOL and a number of other companies.
Special thank you to our sponsors midPhase, mk Capital, Coastr, Liquid Talk, Chicago.com, Digital Bootcamp and Chicago Entrepreneurial Center. Thank you to the Gramercy for the sleek venue and special thanks to Vonage founder Jeff Pulver for dropping his black AMEX card for an open tab of drinks at the event. Thanks to midPhase for driving guests home in stretch style via limo. The Chicagoist did a nice job capturing some the details of the event and the limo situation. If you are interested in sponsoring the next TECH cocktail be sure to email us, Frank Gruber or Eric Olson. Oh and black AMEX cards will continue to be welcome at TECH cocktail events. 🙂
We were happy to announce the launch of a new job board at the event called TECH cocktail Job Board found at: jobs.techcocktail.com. It is an effort to connect employers and jobseekers with sweet new gigs. The idea formulated as we were getting a constant flow of employers looking for good people to fill some openings after TECH cocktail 1. More information on the job board to come in an upcoming post.
Many thanks to our three video crews that captured the event, Liquid Talk, Stone Cliff Productions and Technology Evangelist. We look forward to seeing the videos online soon. Be sure to check out TECH cocktail 2 photos now! We had a number of photographers and bloggers in attendance and we thank you – be sure to tag your blog posts, videos and photos: techcocktail and TECHcocktail2.
Finally, thank you to everyone that attended to make the evening so much fun – we could not have done it without your funloving support!
