I’ve just returned from a busy week in Silicon Valley. Like a kid in a candy store, I found myself wildly overbooked and dashing from meeting to meeting.
No doubt the highlight was Wednesday evening, when Seth “slumlord millionaire” Goldstein hosted the Dog Patch Labsters and all the other Pier 38 startups to a Spring Fling Show n Tell over beer n barbecue. The energy around Pier 38 these days is awesome.
But beyond that, the thing that struck me on my flight home is the amount and quality of entrepreneurial activity I saw this week. While the rest of the world is slogging through the worst recession of our lifetime, the very early stage scene in Silicon Valley is buzzing with activity. Which is great news for all of us.
