Re-Cap of October CSE Group Meeting

Written by  Mike Schmidt

Re-Cap of our October 2009 CSE Group Meetup:

To those "hardy" members who braved the snow to make it to our downtown Penrose Library Meetup... Thank you.    We had close to 30 people on our RSVP initially and was expecting a full room turnout, but just 10+ made it to the meeting !   Hopefully we will not have a "snow-day" repeat in November.  (Update: Our meeting in November will be held on Monday the 30th at the East Library at 6PM).  We are putting together our speakers now, and will have additional information about the preliminary Seed Capital Fund announcement we made Wednesday night.

Like you, I really enjoyed the great night of speakers with Brent Mellow of Mellow Ventures/akaCRM, Kevin Dibble of, and Debbie Saunders Mignola of ProVaultLaw.   The evening started off with strategic as well as tactical insights and ideas from Brent Mellow who provided a number of suggestions for improving your business productivity and increasing the reach and range of your customer interactions using advanced CRM tools.

Following the break, Kevin Dibble of provided an overview of their exciting video e-mail solution they have been developing and beta testing for several months and outlined their investment model for raising capital to help them with an aggressive "go to market" strategy that will assist in launching their services platform and expanding their customer base.

Also, it was great to see the progress that Debbie Saunders Mignola has made with her ProVault software as a service application for processing online divorce proceedings and finanical information exchanges between spouses and their legal representatives or as individual prose litigants representing themselves.  Debbie has assembled a great technical and business advisory team and introduced her capital needs to the group so we can spread the word about her requirements and see if we can help her out.

All in all a great night of entrepreneurial exchanges and networking !

See you next month back at our "home base" at the East Library.
