Open Coffee Club India

            Open Coffee Club  starts in Chennai and in Bangalore. This should result in a regular meetups and creation of informal network/community of entreprenuers and would benefit entreprenuers interacting with each other. But I think the unique thing about Open Coffee Clubthat differentiates  from other meetups & camps  is that this open movement was championed by a VC/investor, Saul Klein who started this a few months ago is a partner at Index Ventures. This to large extent prevents skewed participation from the VC community in many open movements. Aided by its regular meets this provides a possibility for sourcing advisory capital for an entreprenuer which so far has always been bundled with venture money.  It would be great if  SiddhiVaibhav , Ramjee could rope in an investor (angel/VC) who would be simillarly passionate about the cause of creation of an entreprenuerial ecosystem. Last when I checked with few VC’s I knew they were shy to participate but I think they are not to blame because contrary to currently prevalent belief the ratio of VC/entreprenuer is very low,  given this VC participating in things like this knows that they will be barraged worser than what happens in the rapid fire round of Koffee with Karan 🙂

  3. @Ram/Vaibhav,

    Last meet was with Alok of Canaan partner, he keeps travelling to bangalore almost every month and we had a meet on one of such days when he was in bangalore. Since you have already got it annouced in Venturewoods I guess Alok would know it already, I could drop in note still.
