As it has since it was launched by Scott Heiferman in 2004, the July event will feature a flurry of presentations by internet startups hoping to catch the eye of investors.
Among the companies scheduled to present at tomorrow’s meetup: StuffBuff, a more organized, bluer-hued eBay-esque auction site; Betterfly, a site that connects people to personal services that will help users feel, presumably, better; and Eventros, a social networking mobile site that allows (bored?) attendees of professional events to connect with each other – during the event.
And there are other presentations, too, including one by NYU professor Clay Shirky, who’s become a web demigod.
The meetups are cyber-startup whirlwinds: six developers each month have five minutes to present their ideas on a stage. Past Meetup winners include the founders of Drop.io, one of Time Magazine’s 50 Best Websites in 2009, which demoed their file-sharing site at the November meetup in 2007, as well as Facebook, Tumblr, Vimeo and Google, which have presented ideas at past events.
