Breakout session info
We have a special guest speaker coming into town to talk about Crowdfunder.com. Chance Barnett has been working with the government to help change laws related to crowdsourcing and funding/equity in startups. The legislation just passed and Chance was ready to open up Crowdfunder.com right away. Now you can help out startups in a Kickstarter or Indiegogo type fashion, but with CrowdFunder your contributions actually earn you equity in that startup.
Chance will be at the Jelly this week to talk about Crowdfunder and his experiences. This will be one breakout session you won't want to miss.

Jelly #21 (1/5/12 7pm - 12am) @ The Beat Coffeehouse
Welcome to 2012! Let's kick off the first Jelly of the new year right. These next couple weeks are going to be huge for #VegasTech since it's that time of year again for CES to come to town! Check out this website to look for different CES related events around town. Not enough downtown IMHO.
For some good 'ol downtown fun be sure to hit up IgniteVegas which will be at Insert Coins and will rock!
As for the Jelly we have a very special guest speaker stopping by. Some of you might remember his awesome talk from Mobile Monday Las Vegas. He's the CEO of SocialRadius and also a wine/cheese/bacon lover. (Probably mixed together) He is Michael Terpin and he'll be stopping by to enlighten us.
Another breakout session going down that got quite a bit of interest a couple Jellies ago is "Hackers && Painters" put on by RayMorgan and Mark Johnson. This is a highly technical breakout session so bring your laptops and prepare to be schooled!

Starting this Jelly we're going to start hosting the Jellies every week! From now on we'll be able to cowork, drink beers, and just hang out with the Las Vegas tech scene ever Thursday from 7PM to Midnight!
I decided to do this because of the obvious crowd that we've been seeing at the Jellies. There are so many awesome people that we've flooded The Beat to capacity. (We're just lucky the fire marshall has never stopped by)
So like always, bring yourself and something to work on!
Jelly #15 (11/10/11 7pm - 12am) @ The Beat Coffeehouse

Jelly number 14! Bring something to work on and some good conversation. I'm sure many of you have heard about the Coworking space that we, as a community, have been working on. Take a look at all the conversations going on about it. Feel free to contribute to the conversations and be a part of the community. Let's build this awesome place together!
Rick Duggan will be offering up his help by giving one on one pitch coaching. Hit him up on twitter if you're interested.

Jelly #12 (9/29/11 7pm - 12am) @ The Beat Coffeehouse
We have two crazy awesome breakout sessions happening this week. Depending on the status of /usr/lib we may or may not have the breakout sessions up there.
For the first session, we're welcoming Alex Hillman to Vegas. Alex started and runs Independents Hall in Philadelphia. Indy Hall is a coworking space that has really established itself as a community oriented place to work and play. VegasJelly was heavily inspired by Indy Hall so you should all attend this breakout session. It will start at 7:30PMish.
The second breakout session will start at 8:30PMish. Rick Duggan is holding a pitch session for some local startups just like at Jelly #9. Be sure to check out the pitches and give
good feedback for these #vegastech startups!
UPDATE on Alex Hillman! - There are a couple awesome updates Alex wanted me to post here for everyone. If you want to email Alex, his email address is "alex at indyhall dot org". Also if you're interested in taking Alex's Coworkshop, you can save $50 by putting in the promo code "VEGASJELLY" when checking out.
Jelly #11 (9/15/11 7pm - 12am) @ The Beat Coffeehouse
"VEGAStyle™ is a fundraising event set up as a friendly competition between the major clubs in town to see which can raise the most money (for your wonderful organization). Instead of racing for a cure or cycling for a cause, individual participants will "Party for the Future" – VEGAStyle! Each club will have its own team, led by volunteering employees. Leading up to the event, they will utilize their networks to motivate others to: join the team, spread the word, donate money, attend the the event, and solicit their own networks to sponsor them."
Be sure to hit up Rick and Jason at the Jelly or on twitter to get more info!
Jelly #8 (8/04/11 7pm - 12am) @ The Beat Coffeehouse
Number 8! It seems like only yesterday it was just a few friends and I hacking away at the first Jelly. Look how far we've come in only 8 meetups! As VegasJelly gets bigger and bigger people will naturally want to socialize more and more. That's totally cool, but remember that lots of people are there to work. So let's all be respectful. :)
See you there!
Jelly #7 (7/21/11 7pm - 12am) @ The Beat Coffeehouse
It'll be business as usual at the 7th installment of VegasJelly. Bring yourself, and something work on, or just come have a $1 PBR and a sandwich at The Beat. Remember IgniteVegas is coming so don't forget to sign up or submit a talk. @crystalschang is putting it on so be sure to thank her for bring this awesome event to Vegas!
Jelly #6 (7/7/11 7pm - 12am) @ The Beat Coffeehouse
Well folks, Las Vegas Startup Weekend might be over for now, but the Jellies definitely are not! We'll be continuing as normal tonight. @makenai is going to be showing off the newly acquired space in The Beat for a Tech Library!
So bring yourself, a laptop, and something to work on.
See you there!
Jelly #5 (6/23/11 7pm - 12am) @ The Beat Coffeehouse
VegasJelly #5 is going to be a special one folks! It's the last Jelly before Las Vegas Startup Weekend! Get those pitches ready!
At that last Jelly we introduced something new called "Breakout Sessions". This week we're going to have two more breakouts, but these will be a little more community focused. The first one will be a session about having a hacker library downtown. @makenai will be starting the conversation. The second breakout session will also be tech community focused. @dylanbathurst will be discussing a coworking space downtown.
Jelly #4 (6/9/11 7pm - 12am) @ The Beat Coffeehouse
At Jelly #3 we had a huge turn out! We almost filled the beat! This is so awesome everyone. With only one more Jelly left before Las Vegas Startup Weekend, use this time to start preparing your ideas for the pitch session! If you're not attending startup weekend, don't worry, there will be many more to come in the future!
I've noticed that some of people that have met at the Jellies are starting to chat/collaborate/work together outside of the Jellies. This brings a proud tear to my eye. So don't be afraid to strike up a conversation with the person sitting next to you.
See you all Thursday night!
Photos from Jelly #3
@zappos_d took some really great photos from the Jelly the other night!
Some of the guys from the SYNshop group came to hang out and chat!
