I looked around and decided that what the world really needed was …. another blog about startups.
Startups are my life and passion. I’ve been fortunate to get to participate in almost every role: founder, hacker, manager, employee, investor, advisor.
I studied CS at Harvard but dropped out the year after Mark Zuckerberg because life is too short to not feel like you are having the most impact you can at every moment. I co-founded Scribd, one of the first Y Combinator companies and grew it to 100 people. Now I work as a partner at Y Combinator.
I strongly believe that silicon valley is building the future. Living in this world is like living in a time bubble that’s stuck 5 years ahead of the rest of the world. Decades from now we will look back on this time and place as the most productive and innovative in history. I consider myself incredibly lucky to be a part of it.
