Excerpt from a mailer that went out this week (not composed by me):
#StartUp Christmas was conceived by Jens (Shopstar), Alex (StoneTree) and Werner (PayFast) over a glass of wine at an end-of-conference party.
Conversations, which started with the classic “Sjoe! What a year its been!“, ended with a serious discussion on how to best bid it farewell.
The biggest challenge –okay, not exactly the biggest, but a significant challenge none-the-less– is that its really hard to have a big end of year party with just three people. Just adding beer to the people you have be staring at every day doesn’t really do much.
But – add a few like-minded startups, a pool, a DJ, some fairy lights, a Santa – and BOOM: #StartUp Christmas is born.
We hope that you can make it. It’s going to be fun – much more fun than you, the two other devs and shot of tequila each. Promise.
Go check out the website: www.startupchristmas.com. RSVP, while you’re there. I can’t wait.
