The purpose of the Ice Breaker event was to melt the ice between introverted engineers, extraverted entrepreneurs, and everyone else in between. The usual introductions don’t work. How can you judge your compatibility with a person based on the handshake and a smile? This is why Startup Monthly team decided to turn the old formula of co-founder meetups upside down. The purpose of the Ice Breaker was to place people in a comfortable, fun and equalizing setting.
The format of this event was experimental and can be (and will be!) improved. And yet at the end of the day it go very loud with so many new teams forming. Many were reluctant to leave at the end: still talking, and discussing, and arguing, and agreeing – all to the full dismay of the security guard ready to lock up and go home.
