I have been attending a “Founders Drinks” event every 5 or 6 weeks in San Francisco at Thumbtack.com co-founder Jonathan Swanson’s condo for the since the start of 2012. It is a get together of some of San Francisco’s movers and shakers in the technology industry.
I have enjoyed the events so much that I decided to bring the concept to Vancouver as a way to bring together some of Vancouver’s technology leaders. The other night was our second dinner where we did a catered meal at BuildDirect’s swanky new offices downtown Vancouver.
