For those of you who know us @ BootUP, you know we are proud to host events focused on entrepreneurship, social impact and innovation. Every week, our team welcomes the numerous clients who chose to host their meeting or event at our unique space. Here’s one example of a recent happy event client – you can be next!
“My name is Tom Diederich, director of community engagement at a software company called GridGain Systems. I’m also one of the organizers of the Bay Area In-Memory Computing Meetup – a monthly technical event featuring talks from experts of this specific technology.
The meetup is about a year old and has more than 800 members. As meetups go, this one is extremely focused and appeals mainly to data scientists and application architects. The Bay Area, while full of such folks, poses an unusually challenging environment for on-site events due to one factor: The traffic.
I’ve held these meetups in event spaces in San Francisco, Burlingame, San Mateo, Mountain View, Santa Clara, San Jose and Fremont. Despite having a large membership base, it was a struggle getting more than 25 people to actually show up — even though some events received nearly 100 RSVPs.
My search for this meetup’s “sweet spot” ended when I found BootUP in Menlo Park. I’ve used this space for our last two meetups and both drew attendance double of our events up to that point. The last meetup drew nearly 60 people.
Our June 13 meetup will also be held there.
Why? It makes my event more successful.
The location is convenient for this group’s members. Several arrive by bicycle.
The space is unique and captures the essence of Silicon Valley’s spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship. The place is buzzing with energy.
Event coordinator Britteney Reynolds makes hosting these events easy. She’s been there every step of the way — from planning to post-event wrap-up.
The food is amazing. I’ve had several attendees tell me that the food was the best they’ve ever had at a meetup.”
