One of the “ventures” I alluded to earlier (in this blog) is LIVE. StartupChicks.Net.
For several years now, connecting with (or trying to connect with) like minded people has been a passion of mine. It’s not always easy, and depending on where you live might be impossible.
I am lucky that I have connected with a significant number of like minded individuals through various organizations – mostly with the Startup Community in Atlanta. But, one thing that I have found missing at these events is WOMEN.
So, I decided to reach out and find other women interested in Startups, and voila! StartupChicks.net is born.
It went live a little earlier than I planned/expected. My original intent was to spend this week starting to build a little buzz about StartupChicks on Twitter, building out content to this site and then, slowing getting the word out through our contacts next week.
But, it didn’t quite work that way…. The buzz on Twitter sort of took on a life of itself, and the next thing I know I’m being interview by the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
Oh well, no use crying over spilled milk! A website is never really done…
StartupChicks.net is a community site (or social networking site). So, it is all about the members! I will be adding content. The other founders/advisory board members will be adding content. But, I hope that the members will add content, have discussions and start to get to know each other.
For members in Atlanta, we will meet monthly, the 3rd Wednesday of the Month. The first meeting is scheduled for March 18th, location TBD.
My hope is that through the network we all develop friendships and gain the resources necessary to grow our businesses and be hugely successful.
Join at StartupChicks.net!
