  • I am your facilitator. That means I help set the pace of Startup Camp. If you have any questions about how this works or would like to share your experience, come to me.
    I just flew in today from another startup weekend event at a corporation in Kansas City. I’m to share with you what I shared with them.

    It’s easy to get used to something and getting really good at it and stop doing new things. I want to congratulate you all for just being here and trying something new. But showing up is not enough.

    I have one ask of each of you. Push yourselves out of that comfort zone; push yourselves harder than you ever have before and when you experience something new DO it with all you got. I promise you that what you build together will be wonderful.
