What are people saying about these events?
"I would like to recommend the Monday Motivation evenings with James Shoemark, the CEO of the Start Race. His experience in business and startups is invaluable in understanding how you can easily develop your idea, avoid common mistakes and it will enable you to make progress more quickly than other entrepreneurs. You will develop your entrepreneurial skills starting with the mindset required to raise investment. The confidential discussions with other entrepreneurs also enables you to develop and execute a plan with real success weekly. I recommend that everyone who has an entrepreneurial spirit and aspires to be their own Boss should come along to James's Monday Motivation evenings." Luis Acevedo, CTO at SpectCell Ltd
"It was really great going to Monday Motivation this week. James helped us discuss our entrepreneurial personality types and we brainstormed ideas for progress and came up with concrete actions. It was very energizing to meet and talk to others in similar situations and to be reminded how to move things forward." Stu Meikle

About League of Entrepreneurs
The League of Entrepreneurs (LoE) is a virtual, global network of technology entrepreneurs that shares and communicates on the Slack platform. We believe in data, metrics, lean methodologies, and scientific, disciplined approach to building new global technology ventures rapidly. Amongst other offerings, we host monthly "Ask Me Anything" sessions with Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and venture capitalists on our Slack channel. We also are building local chapters for face-to-face intervention. Our local chapter in Edinburgh was born from CofoundersLab Scotland, founded and organized by Michael Clouser and James Schoemark. We continue same themes as envisioned by CoFoundersLab for its once-international network of local chapters, including creating a positive, motivating environment where entrepreneurs can find cofounders, in the midst of interactive meetings where entrepreneurs are encouraged to "get up and pitch" and tell us about what they are looking for not only in terms of cofounders, but also in terms of mentors, advisors, investors, and interns. We used a combination of straight presentations and Fireside Chats to engage with our guest entrepreneurs, which have included Rob Jones (formerly of Fanduel), Mike Ramsay (founder of Tivo and Silicon Valley venture capitalist with NEA), and local serial and social impact entrepreneur, Daniel Winterstein. We hold monthly meetings in Edinburgh, and are strong supporters of Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW), hosting and supporting numerous events in Edinburgh and Glasgow during the month of November. We also throw the annual Startups Christmas party for startup professionals, friends and family in Edinburgh, and invite those from all over Scotland to attend. We are currently growing our global network virtually, as well as seeking partners for local chapters around the world.
