Why start a meetup?

Ghyslain Gaillard @ghyslain

I came to London to be part of the biggest tech community in Europe, and to learn from the best how to start my own company.

In Feb. 18, I realized that it was time for me to meet like-minded people that I could start a company with in the future. 👨‍💻👨‍🎤👩‍💻👨‍💼👩‍💼

First thing I did was to go to a bunch of meetups: ML meetups, Startups meetups, you name it. I was going to one or two meetup per week.

⛔️ I stopped after 1 month.

Problem is the quality of most meetups is completely random, as well as the type of people I would get to meet.
