Everything – Blog changes, grant, workshop, expo
Thomas here. Welcome to the weekend! Let’s get right into it.
ME.mory: We did have a small team meeting yesterday. One task for me will be to port over entries here to Medium, including the backdating of such posts. I am also to apply for a specific grant ($5k-$25k) which we have in mind. Nick will be sharing what will be possible with new funding amounts, and how they will prepare a version of ME.mory for the release of my memoir such that they will coincide and reinforce each other. Clarissa will help us to stay on task, and will provide information about the newest version of our beta after speaking with the development team at the start of next week.
Events: On April 9th I had attended a “Start Up Basics Workshop” held by SCORE Philadelphia (https://philadelphia.score.org/). SCORE as a volunteer organization funded through multiple sources is an effort to enable entrepreneurs, such as us. I was glad for the connections made and information gleaned as a result. There are many caring entrepreneurs who participate in SCORE’s efforts, and it would be a pleasure to give back myself if I have the opportunity to do so.
The “Small Business Expo” had been held at Loews Philadelphia on April 12th. There was quite a range of topics addressed, with talks covering common issues such as “How to Create Consistent Cash Flow and Increase Profits in your Business” but also one titled “Opioid Crisis and Drug Addiction Epidemic in the Workplace”. I was glad to see such a difference.
Memoir: Work continues and takes longer than expected. Be advised if you are to ever write a book! 🙂 It would be great to have it available in time for the Philly Startup Leaders Entrepreneur Expo (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/philly-startup-leaders-entrepreneur-expo-2019-presented-by-linode-tickets-54919381348)
Upcoming: We are expecting to set up our GoFundMe next week. Such an effort will likely note the total amount of funding we are seeking currently, what we will offer to donors based on the amounts donated by them and what we expect to accomplish when the particular amounts of funding received. Nick will be sharing this information with Clarissa and I shortly.
Also, on 5/1 I will likely be attending the Philly Tech Week Pre-Launch Party (https://www.meetup.com/Philly-Software-HealthTech-Meetup/events/260350781/) at WeWork (1601 Market St.). Let’s chat if you stop on by.
OK! That’s it! I’ll add photos here if receiving them from Clarissa soon.
Enjoy Easter if you celebrate it, or just have a fun weekend!
