Checking in with Dennis Crowley in Cannes

Checking in with Dennis Crowley in Cannes
If you are as passionate about Foursquare as we are, I’m sure you will be interested to know that last Saturday we met up with none other than Foursquare co-founder Dennis Crowley himself.
It was a great and quite spontaneous event pulled together in just a few days.

Once we knew Dennis was in Cannes to speak at the Cannes Lions Festival we contacted Foursquare and proposed to organize a meetup with the local 4sq community.

And to our surprise, despite his crazy schedule, Dennis accepted to meet us!

Of course, the main theme of the event was Foursquare’s incredible new milestone. For those unaware, last week Foursquare surpassed the 10 million user mark (see a “sweet visualization” on the above photo).

The meetup was held in a beach party format and everybody could exchange a few words with “the coolest CEO ever” and his girlfriend Chelsa.

Dennis answered people’s questions about a $50 million fundraising (the latest news announced just the day before the meetup), Foursquare’s plans for the future and lots of other curious things…

For instance, we learned that Dennis had made his first checkin in 2004 via his then geolocation service Dodgeball.

Thanks once again to all those who helped organize this awesome event and who came to say hi.
We hope this kind of meetups will become a good tradition and will help evangelize Foursquare in France!

You can find more photos on the Meetup page.
