This past week I had the opportunity to spend an entire day in New York meeting with entrepreneurs who were not actively seeking funding and others who have dedicated their efforts to supporting the entrepreneurial community in New York through organizing conferences or focusing their legal expertise on corporate formation, IP and negotiating founder friendly initial investment structures. I was invigorated by the opportunity to brainstorm with them, suggest resources for them and absorb their energy and enthusiasm for what they are working on.
My motivation to spend a day this way came from reading Charlie’s post on the NYC ecosystem here and he was one of the people who made time to hang out. We had a really positive conversation and I am going to try to be in the city once a week to follow through on much of what we discussed. I will be at the Entrepreneurs Round Table and Digital Dumbo Dinks this week. If you think I can add value to your business based on my background and want to get together in the city, let me know.
