This year I had the honor of attending “Startup School“. It was an awakening, seeing the truth behind building a great company. I come from the east cost, I think we have great support like NextNY, the New York Tech Meetup, great incubators, and great advisors but the West Coast has some true gems. Support coming from Y Combinator and the startup schoool is amazing. Paul Graham gives great direction. It is eye opening.
I listened to founders talk, like Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook and Reid Hoffman of LinkedIn, it was worth the trip to CA. I recommend if you ever have the chance to go, take it.
To hear some great info from the startup school, watch this video from 2009.
