Question for the community:

Weber State wants to host a breakfast meeting with a speaker -- a VP at Microsoft who is also a WSU grad. The proposed date and time is September 21 from 8-9am.

All members would be invited to attend and breakfast is free. The stage and chairs would be setup on the third floor.

Thoughts on the disruption, if any, that a breakfast speaker like this might create? Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks!

REMINDER: the building is not for crowds and/or friends to join you to watch the parade or other holiday activities. It's a private workspace so please keep it that way during holidays and other special occasions. Thanks!

MAILBOXES INSTALLED THIS WEEK!

The mailboxes will be installed this week. They will be next to the fire extinguisher on the wall to the right of the 2nd floor east stairs.

Once it is installed, we will no longer be accepting mail for anyone that is not a $99/month member. Any mail received will be returned to sender unless you have a mailbox.  Please let Mikenzey (downstairs at the Campus Store) know if you want to upgrade one seat to the $99 level so that you can get a mailbox. 

If you already have a $99/level seat, you will be assigned a mailbox and we will give you a key to your box once it is installed.

The mailboxes are here! If you get mail to this office you'll need to upgrade one seat to $99/month. Otherwise we will return mail to the sender. Please let me know who wants one. We have 25 slots I believe.

Question: we are going to mount it on the second floor wall. Any preferences where?

Zion's Bank has put together a package for startups that has a TON of free and discounted tools for entrepreneurs.  See the attached flyer. I have seen the list of stuff that this free program provides and it is pretty impressive.

They have asked for 10 companies from Startup Ogden to be given free access.  Let me know if you would like to be one of them.

+Zarin Ficklin  thinks we should move the Startup Ogden community off of G+ and over to Slack.  What are your thoughts?

The HQ team is incredibly talented. They do world class work, on time and on budget. They are fun to work with, creative and I've enjoyed all of our interactions. I'd highly recommend them.
