  • Who has an idea to pitch?\nWho wants to make/build something?\nWho wants to see if they’re cut out for Entrepreneurship?\nWho’s here to have fun?\n
  • Google and MS - you already know.\nKauffman support Entreprenership all over the world\nCloudmine - Back end for mobile apps\nSendGrid - Mass Email solutions\n.CO - domain names.\n

  • Who knows this quote from Apollo 13 movie?\nWell, it’s bullshit.\nNot only was it never said, it’s not true.\n
  • Light bulb - 21 inventors before Edision. 1802 - 1879 = iteration.\nMicrosoft Kinect - started as Israeli military tech for landmine detection.\n\nDon’t be afraid to try and fail. Keep going.\n
  • Normally, I tell SW teams to think big. Ideas for the world, or universe as Peter would say.\nKosovo *might* be an exception. \nFor example, an online payments system, could kick-ass.\n
