Our next Boston BizSpark Meetup will be held on Thursday, March 31st at Dogpatch Labs located at One Cambridge Center 6th Floor in Cambridge. This is the large brick building next to the Kendall Square Red Line T stop.

At 6:30 Brad Harkavy will give his presentation "Different Investors for Different Folks". Brad Harkavy has 20 years of technical and management experience bringing new companies and products to life. Currently, Harkavy is the President of Harkador Partners, where he offers part-time CEO services, and is developing business models and business strategies for his start up clients. He sits on the Board of Directors and Advisory Board of several early stage companies.

At 7 PM Jim Geisman of Software Pricing Partners will present Software Pricing for SaaS Startups. Jim Geisman is founder and principal of Software Pricing Partners, Inc. where he provides senior management counsel and marketing and sales consulting services. He has led consulting engagements for a broad range of clients addressing fundamental issues affecting business success.

At 7:30 PM Michael Preshman of RippleFunction and at 8 PM Candice Cabe of Day2Night Heels will pitch their startups to Tom Egan of Launch Capital.

Well, it was a very very crappy night. Not a great night to be riding a motorcycle... that's for sure. I braved the snow and rain and made it to Dogpatch. Brad had some great stuff on the current climate for investors and it was helpful to understand the startup investing market a little bit better. Great comparison also on west coast vs east coast.

Jim talked about pricing... So I was really paying close attention. He focuses more on the B2B play so the B2C (which is where I am) he didn't touch on too much. Boooo!!

And then my friend Candice pitched her business concept and did a great job.

Sorry to not cover more on the blog but I need to concentrate on the business stuff and when I get breaks write stuff more my blog. But here are some pics.
