1Berkshire Entrepreneurial Meetup
Wednesday, April 8, 2015
Dottie’s Coffee Lounge, 444 North Street, Pittsfield Mass.
Join Scott Kirchner, founder of Mad Macs, for an informal conversation about his experience launching and growing a successful start-up in the Berkshires.
In 1998, Apple Computers had been in decline for almost ten solid years. Refusing to believe that these wonderful machines had seen the last of their glory days, Scott Kirchner jumped on board and began to row what others considered a sinking ship.
In a parallel universe some 3,000 miles away in Cupertino, California at about the same time Mad Macs was founded, the iMac was born. This kickstarted Apple into a design revolution that birthed the iPod, iPhone, and the iPad and ultimately catapulted the company to become one of the largest and most lucrative businesses in the world.

Why entrepreneurial meetups?
1Berkshire is facilitating a series of meetups which gather local entrepreneurs together to engage and network, as well as allow 1Berkshire to share resources with this important community. The first meetup on February 27 was a success, with 15-20 current or potential entrepreneurs arriving at The Marketplace Cafe in Pittsfield for low-key shop talk with Paul LeBlanc, owner and founder of Zogics.
The term ‘meetup’ entered the popular lexicon in 2002, when the social networking website meetup.com was launched. Today, meetups are held across the globe and bring people of like-interests together. Although 1Berkshire’s Entrepreneurial Meetups are not powered by meetup.com, these events will be organized in a similar way: as opportunities for entrepreneurs in the region to drop into a coffee shop or gather together at a bar after work to have casual, organic conversations about issues and ideas related to their businesses.
