Wow – I can’t believe it was a year ago when Frank and I first put on this event. It was a crazy idea to be sure since we had no idea how many people would come or if people would get any value from it but a year later with four events in Chicago under our belts and one in D.C. (and one on the way in Boston) I can safely say TECH cocktail has turned into everything we hoped for and much much more.
The Chicago tech scene has also sprung to life it seems over the past year. Now we’ve got great events in town like Chicago Beta and Web Ascent along with staples like BarCamp (which we were fortunate enough to be part of this time around via a donation we made to the cause). We’ve got company’s springing up all around us. Some companies are even being sold to the big guys and the big guys are continuing to add to their presence in Chicago.
It has also been a big year for both Frank and I with the the move over to AOL and the sale of FeedBurner to Google respectively.
It has been fantastic to get to know all of you over the past year and to work with a lot of you and I am definitely looking forward to another great year. That said, what better way to kick things off than to start with another TECH cocktail. The TECH cocktail 1 year Anniversary event!
