Dinner 2.02


Dinner 2.0 is a Sydney event designed to bring together people involved in local ‘next web’ companies.


Another one was held tonight and with some slightly too expensive [but very nice] food, alcohol, VCs, startups, consultants, and a location like the Centennial Hotel, you get a great setting for 3-4 hours of chatter on all things next web. Another great night with some fantastic people.


Thanks to everyone who attended. I was repeatedly told people had a great time, so I’m obliged to believe them! Next one should be late October, bigger and better. Maybe I’ll organize some startup demos (hmm… a Tangler preview perhaps…)


Attendees (which grew rather suddenly on me when everybody called at the last minute to ‘just squeeze in a friend’):


  • Peter Crowe (Quotify)
  • Marc Woodward (Neo Technology Partners)
  • Vivian Stewart (Hall Capital)
  • Kerry Pynor (TMD)
  • Rhandy Lado (Tangler)
