Late in the summer, I wrote about how I thought startups should be “Tricoastal.” What I meant was that you can benefit greatly from having a presence in Boston, New York City and Silicon Valley. I’ve made a number of visits to New York City in the past 6 months, but have yet to make a real visit to the Valley. It’s finally time to change that.
December 3rd through 8th I’m going to be visiting Silicon Valley.
In order to make the most of it, I plan to spend a little time in 3 of the major hubs: San Francisco, Palo Alto and Mountain View.
If you’re reading this, I’d love to meet up and/or hear your advice on things I can’t miss during this visit. I really want to get a feel for what it’s like out here, what makes the Valley tick and as many of the places that make the Valley special as possible. I’m also working on a lean product management tool, so if you know any product people I should meet, let me know!
I’ll be in San Francisco: Saturday evening, 12/3 to midday Monday 12/5
I’ll be in Palo Alto: midday Monday 12/5 to midday Wednesday 12/7
I’ll be in Mountain View: midday Wednesday 12/7 through Thursday 12/8
I have places to crash in Palo Alto and Mountain View, but I’m still looking for a place to crash in SF on Saturday and Sunday nights. If you’ve got a couch, please let me know!
