Featured Member – Anil Kumar, RXHomeTest – August 2018

It is refreshing to hear the voice of someone newer to the startup world and it brings back so many memories, both good and bad, of what it was like to found a company for [...]

A common thread in the founders at this event was long-distance relationships. It turned out [...]

Event Recap: San Francisco, July 2018

We had a wonderful time at 500 Startups! Thanks to our Sponsors, we had another great event! The game was founders vs. investors vs. sponsors - all dueling it out for the winning prizes! It was a tense battle with winner across all 3 groups! I have to say though - the River card will always give you a surprise! Looking forward to our next event, until [...]

Event Recap: San Diego, July 2018

It’s the final table and it’s down to the final 3. “How many hands are left to go, is this my one?” you think to yourself. You decide to play, not a great hand but winnable, you don’t have many chips left, should I go all in this hand? The Flop leaves you with a pair (high card) so you bet, the chip leader decides [...]

Event Recap: Los Angeles, June 2018

The June event was a great time. Many continued thanks to Startup Haven member, Amanda Szabo, for generously continuing to host us at the offices of ResortPast. It's a great space and, with the patio door wide open, the coastal breeze drifting through is fantastic. Most of the attendees were first timers and several Mucker companies were among them. That's a big deal for a [...]

Event Recap: San Diego, June 2018

This month we were back at the Vine! They moved to UTC and are located equally inconveniently for both North County and Downtown founders, however, it’s worth it. The Vine has a tremendous space for founders both for poker or to work out of! We were lucky to have one of the top accelerators in the country in attendance. We almost didn’t make it out [...]

Event Recap: San Francisco, May 2018

Once again, we had an incredible time as 500 Startups hosted us in their amazing San Francisco office. Additionally, without WSGR and Colliers continued support of startup founders, we wouldn’t be able to do this without them! Thank you everyone for your support! Our sponsors ran the tables this evening while everyone watched the Warriors play the Rockets for the NBA Western Conference Finals. With [...]
