This is the copy of a speech I delivered at a crowdfunding conference in Austin this weekend. It’s similar to the content in the series I did a few months ago. I also did some slides with it, you can download them here if you want to see them:
“Parental love so much easier to give than romantic love; one spares kids that unfair expectation: that they should understand one.”
“The future is the only thing we can improve.”
“Questions draw us together. Answers push us apart.”
Last night, I found out that my friend Seth Roberts passed away.
You may not have known Seth, you may not even have known who he was, but he was a very important person to the lives of many people.
“Life is not transformed by the accumulation of knowledge, but rather the full-on application of specific knowledge.”
“Dance like no one is watching. Run like no one is watching. Eat like no one is watching. Welcome to being a human. No one cares about you.”
This is the fifth in the series of posts that outlines the companies I’ve invested in, and why I picked them. My goal is to reach 100 early stage investments by January 1, 2018.
