Seattle speed dating review

Rated 3.81/5 based on 680 customer reviews

The first speed-dating event took place at Peet’s Café in Beverly Hills in late 1998.Usually advance registration is required for speed dating events.At the end of the event participants submit to the organizers a list of who they would like to provide their contact information to.If there is a match, contact information is forwarded to both parties.Tania Yuki, CEO of Shareablee, a graduate of the Microsoft Accelerator in Seattle program, expressed her appreciation for the reciprocal startup-Microsoft relationship: “It just felt like a really organic session and got me really excited that Microsoft also wants to learn with the companies that are learning with them.” Other sessions from day one of the Roadshow included a roundtable with Jeana Jorgensen from Microsoft’s Go-to-Market program, a session on corporate M&A and strategic business development led by Cyra Richardson, and a Q&A centered on evangelism with Steven Guggenheimer (CVP of Developer Experience) and Kurt Steck (GM of Developer Experience).On the second day of the Startup Roadshow, our later-stage startups met with 15 Microsoft corporate customers from the Seattle area in a “speed dating” exercise that helps both startups and corporates find their ideal business match.Tango Speed Dating™ is a whole new way to interact with real people, live, in-person – a chance to connect through simple partner games using body language before you ever have to say anything!

We laughed a lot and it made meeting people really easy.Sanjoe Tom Jose, CEO of Talview, a graduate of the Microsoft Accelerator in Bangalore said: “At the corporate access event, the opportunity to meet with senior leadership from these large corporates and understand where we can collaborate is going to open up a lot of opportunities for each of us, which can lead to a lot of potential business.” Days two and three included other key moments, such as an Enterprise Readiness session led by Microsoft’s Alec Saunders and Didem Un Ates, media training from Conrad Egusa (CEO of Publicize), sales training from James de Reuck, and an Innovation on Azure session from Mark Russinovich.We also had the honor of sitting down with EVP of Cloud & Enterprise Scott Guthrie for a roundtable and Azure deep dive.Gabriela takes the principals of tango (connection to your partner) to play fun games while having a chance to meet people in both a non-verbal and verbal form.I have to say, I enjoyed everybody that I met and would highly recommend this event.
