Special Guests at March Event

A pink bus from Florida

Startup Bus will be dropping by our March 6 event, enroute from Florida to SXSW. Think of them as Startup Weekend on wheels. Their goal: to create startup(s) from scratch on the bus, and launch them at SXSW.

That’s right: a busload of caffeine-soaked Floridians with a startup problem, making a beer stop in Atlanta. I imagine they’ll be thirsty. What could be more fun than that? And a great opportunity to hear what they’re hatching and to form some relationships beyond our fair city.

So, come one, come all! Let’s show those gator-lovers (or should that be Gator-lovers?) what the Atlanta startup scene is about.

Special Event: Holiday Party, Dec 14

Georgia Tech Hotel

We have a very special event planned this month, a Holiday Party at the Georgia Tech Hotel. This is going to be a great event — you won’t want to miss it. We’re partnering with our friends at ATDC, Startup Chicks, and Startup Riot. There will be a cash bar, with hors d’oeuvres provided by ATDC. And the best news, it’s free.

Given the special nature of this event, we’re expecting a big crowd. If you want to come, you must register at Eventbrite.

Please note the special schedule for this event: December 14 at 6pm. We will go until 9:00.

Also please note that there will not be a Startup Drinks on December 6, which would be our normal “First Tuesday” date this month. The normal Startup Drinks schedule will resume on Tuesday, January 3, 2012.

If you’re coming, please help us get the word out: tell your friends, tweet about @atlsuds, and publish your attendance on Plancast.

See you there!

The Events Just Keep Coming!

Startup Drinks Special Event, Oct 2011

We had a terrific special event at The Barrelhouse last week. Alexis Madrigal and Sarah Rich from The Atlantic magazine were there, and were overwhelmed by the more than 125 startup folks who came out. They’ve written several articles about it, such as A Visual Guide to Atlanta’s Startup Scene:

We met at an event organized by a constellation of Atlanta startup community groups — Startup Chicks, Atlanta Startup Drinks, Startup Riot, the Advanced Technology Development Center — and sponsored by MailChimp, an email marketing startup that I’ve actually used myself.

The city’s entrepreneurs made an impressive show of force. Dozens of them came out to talk about their ventures with us — and with each other. We were blown away by the number and variety of startups, particularly in a town where there are just a handful of venture capital firms.

Not to be outdone, there’s another event tonight at 151 Locust. Details are here.

See you there!

Pardon our dust

Apparently, Atlanta Startup Drinks is about the most active Startup Drinks chapter in the world. (I’m not sure what that says about us, but no further comment will be made.)

Anyway, the Startup Drinks mothership has experienced some technical difficulties with their website, and have decided to move to Plancast. Accordingly, we are in the process of launching an all-new Atlanta Startup Drinks website. Watch here for further details.

In the meantime, please pardon the generic website feel. A graphic designer, I am not…
