Savvy - aggregated profiles for developers
"Co-designing the future of work"
Developer and entrepreneur.
Why are the world's education systems so broken?
Why are more people not working remotely and/or independently?
Why do we need to chose between "life" and "work"?
Why are most people's careers still driven by money and not passion?
Big questions, but very important ones. These are the questions that drive what I do as a tech-entrepreneur (beginning with an aggregated professional profile service for techies: onsavvy.com)
I think the community can benefit from a virtual (ie online) element to this too. Having this as a 'physical' event is great but it also means that it leave out those that do not have the means to travel to the venues. And since this is meant to have a European focus, having a virtual presence will also allow people to connect across Europe.
Useful things during startup week that can be organised online:
- Live Q&A with startup founders over various media
- Webcasts from the different chapters, TEDx style, as you mentioned
- 1-2-1 sessions on Skype
- Virtual speed dating for discovering potential co-founders/business partners
