The power of networks is strong. I participated in a Startup Weekend event with a blockchain theme a little while ago. The week after, I was at the 10th annual Techstars FounderCon conference in Oakland, California.
Both of these events reminded me that the startup community and more specifically the Techstars network is alive, well and thriving.
Now is as good a time as any to be in the startup world. It’s not an easy road, and is an emotional rollercoaster to say the least.
However, seeing people come from all over the world (as far as South Africa) to pitch/participate in Startup Weekend and failed/successful company founders come together at FounderCon, is extremely motivating.
