Today, we had our 7th event of OpenCoffee Manchester, at which I handed the running of this event series to Paul Robinson of Vagueware. I believe Paul is able to unite the Manchester geekup community and the entrepreneur community, especially given that Paul is both a geek and an entrepreneur. As part of the new leadership, there will be a dedicated site setup to promote OpenCoffee Manchester. I will continue to promote and attend the event.
Some of the new attendees we saw today included:
- Birgit Arkesteijn of phonefromhere
- Simon Jermy of The Conch, a social network for travel
- Steve Brauner of Crain’s Manchester Business
