Hi Saul,

We've just had our first meeting in Edinburgh. Next one is Wednesday 18th July, 9-10am, the Forest Cafe. I counted thirteen, so I'm hopeful that we'll stick around.

Hi Saul,

We just had our first Open Coffee at the Sussex Innovation Centre, Brighton. Brought together a good mix of local entrepreneurs and academics from the University of Sussex. We've got lots of people talking and we're working with Ivan Pope who kicked off the Brighton Open Coffee a few months back. Please can you add Open Coffee Sussex to your list, we have a page up at:

Hey Saul!
Thanks for starting the OpenCoffeeClub...
One of these Thursdays, I'm actually going to be able to make it down to one of these meetings in London.. Look forward to meeting with you there too! In the meantime, also congrats on starting Seedcamp, look forward to submitting an application for that in the near future too!

Saul, Awesome idea, would love to see coffee groups in London at the weekends or in the evenings. I, like many entrepreneurs in the foramtive stage, still have full time jobs whilst they are building the concept and doing research. I imagine it is at this time that meeting like minded souls to share thoughts, advice and war stories to be most helpful

On a different note, how long did it take to customise Ning for your needs ? I have just launched a website called smokerslife and want to build in forum functionaility using something like ning. Would you recommend any other systems, or did your wealth of experience lead you inextricably to one mountain

Thaks for the advice in advance

Hi Saul

Just getting up and running with OpenCoffee Newcastle.

Another one for your growing list. Wondering if you thought what you started in London would be taking over the world?
