Requiring a download for Windows, Mac and Linux desktops, a street address can be searched, and the views can be zoomed down to the individual building all the way up to a satellite's view of the globe. .

About Speed Networking
The networking begins in groups of 10, with an assigned captain. Each table participant will give a brief description about themselves and pass out business cards. After ten minutes is up, we'll switch to another group of ten, lather, rinse and repeat.
We had an overflowing crowd last round, and we expect this event to be even bigger and better. So bring cards, bring your elevator pitch Elevator Pitch
A slang term referring to the 20-60 seconds an entrepreneur has to interest a venture capitalist (VC) in his or her business idea.
Entrepreneurs have about the same amount of time to pitch their idea to a VC as they would if they ran into the VC in , bring your ideas and bring your friends.
This might be one of our best events ever, so don't miss it.
