You Co-Work with other startups, why not Co-Party with them as well?

What sort of things (parties, white elephant exchanges, etc.) does your office do during the holidays? Why (or why don’t you) do them?

CoachUp organizes and participates in the Holiday Tech Co-Party every year. The premise is simple: when you start a company, you get to know a lot of other entrepreneurs and startups. But most startups are small and can’t afford large holiday parties. So instead of having a bunch of small holiday parties with just your company, CoachUp organizes an event in December where all startups in Boston are invited to come Co-Party. It results in everyone being able to have a larger party in a bigger venue with more people … and it’s way more fun!
