I'm really looking forward to tomorrow's Startup2Startup dinner.
Paul is going to do Q&A with Dave McClure and I'm going to talk
briefly about some of the parallels I noticed between the stories
in Founders at Work and my experience working with founders at Y Combinator.

Startup2Startup is an unusual event because the audience is almost all startup founders.  I'm hoping it will feel a lot like Startup School. I love that type of audience because they're so engaged.

Dave McClure, who hosts the events, has been around the startup
world for a long time and knows what's what. The YC alumni who've attended in the past have said great things about Startup2Startup. This is the kind of event that makes Silicon Valley Silicon Valley.

This is the second S2S I've been invited to; I can confirm what other alumni have said in the past: S2S events are awesome.

Looking fwd to your talk; see you there.

I'm a long time fan of your work and love your book. Dave is one of our investors and is actually using our product as the online community for Startup2Startup. You should have received an invite from EventVue. I'd be honored if you would take a minute to fill out your profile and check out our product. If you have any suggestions for how we can make it better, we'd love to hear those too.

I unfortunately can't make it, but there is a lot of excitement all over the valley about tomorrow's S2S. Several people have mentioned it to me, and tickets sold out awfully fast.

Hope it goes well!

Sounds like a lot of fun.

Events like these are what make me wish Silicon Valley was a little closer to Boston. :)
