When you love the startup scene as much as I do, you want to breathe, eat, and sleep in that exciting universe. There are really only two things to do. First, you can launch a startup yourself. This I have done, and every time the experience has taught me about my own limits, stamina, and at times my ability to drink.
The second thing you can do is write about startups. You get to sample and taste all of the wonderful flavors at the buffet. I’ve been jealous of John and Todd in this specific regard for years. They get to experience an amazing cross-section of companies and entrepreneurs — identifying patterns, seeing what works (and what doesn’t), and reporting what they find.
6:00 - Networking and Food/Drink
7:00 - Fireside Chat
8:00 - Questions and More Networking
