writer’s block

Very soon, the semester shall be over, Every day in San Francisco has been wonderful. Never have I used so many business buzzwords in my life; Turnkey solutions, SaaS, IoT, ML, AI, VR, AR, blockchain, crypto, RNN, MVP, IPR.

Happy Friday everyone! I trust you are all well and enjoying the countless tasty memes of Zuckerberg making the rounds on the internetz over the past few days.

Chasing paper and counting commas

Welcome back friends! I hope the summer is treating you well – I went for my first Red Sox game against the Yankees last week and boy do I feel that much closer to getting my green card. Next up on the to-do list: visit Yellowstone, annihilate 50 McNuggets in one sitting and raise $100…

A brief semantic interlude

Welcome back! I hope everyone has been well so far – here at MassChallenge we just wrapped up 2017’s startup showcase, an event with over 100 startups and some 1600 attendees. There was good food, great people and ingenious ideas; a potent combination that resulted in an electrical atmosphere of entrepreneurial energy. This heady cocktail…
