Meet the Techgoondus: March 10th

February 27th, 2009 | by Chan Chi-Loong

Interested in free publicity? Techgoondu is organizing a “Meet the Techgoondus” session next month on March 10th (Tuesday) for tech startups in Singapore.

The reason we’re doing this is because start-ups make for great stories but often they don’t get enough notice. Also, it’s a fun way to build a bottom up grassroots tech community in Singapore.

First, a group picture of who we are. Wanted to find a way to tag individuals, like in Facebook, so I used Phlook. For those that have not heard of them, Phlook is a pretty cool Singapore-based social platform start up that allows you to manipulate and share photos.

Use the “notes” function in the sidebar to see the tagging.

A photo of the Techgoondu folks in our last meetup where this idea was hatched. Unfortunately, both Roland and Stephanie are missing.

Interested in getting free publicity for your Singapore technology start-up?

Meet the Techgoondus! Techgoondu ( is a tech blog run by a bunch of ex and current journalists and we’d like to meet you! You might get featured in social media AND traditional media if your stories are interesting!

All you need to do is to show up. No dress code. No cover charge. Just a mingle with folks who have a love of technology and all things Singaporean.

It’s best if you can demo something, so bring your laptop or mobile and show off your stuff!

Please send me a request if you’d like to come via Facebook or email. We’d like to keep the session small and informal, with a group size of about 20. Target audience will primarily be Singapore tech start-ups, or PR agencies and tech vendors who have an interest in this space.

And finally, a big thanks to the Geek Terminal folks for letting us use the place!
