Where to meet other people in "internet start-up mode" in SF?

Asked by Cartman (3037 points ) January 13th, 2010

I’m new to SF (coming from Europe) and just starting up an Internet company, social network, type site. Looking for funding, hiring key people, gearing up for marketing efforts, that sort of thing. Since my main reason for being in SF is not business related but personal, I don’t really know where to start meeting people in the same situation.

It seems like most people (or at least more than anywhere else in the world) are running start-ups or are doing business online so I figure that there must be tons of places, meet-ups, gatherings, bar nights, and what not for like minded people. I just don’t seem to find them.

Am I wrong? Any ideas?

My favorite is Jelly. They now have a weekly meetup at a coffeeshop.

But other events to check out are
http://sfnewtech.com/
http://sfbeta.com/

Also, lots of startups and coworking spaces have free drop-ins—that can be fun. I’d start making meetings with advisors, founders, and angel investors and soon you can get to know many of the people in the startup community.

I’d also watch for events listed on Hacker News. Also search for things on http://meetup.com/.

If you’re an engineer check out Super Happy Dev House.
