I’m a TechStars Graduate!!

In a few minutes I will place my keycard on David’s desk and walk out of the TechStars office for one last time.

This has been an incredible summer. I have learned more than I could have ever imagined. I know that the people I met here will be friends for life. We’re forever grateful to the TechStars mentors and the Boulder community for investing countless hours towards our success. The TechStars program exceeded my expectations in every way possible.

The cool thing is, we’re just getting started! We built our current product in three months. Just wait till you see what we have in a year!


Finally! RSS feeds for any website!

There is a beautiful venue in Denver called Red Rocks. The variety of shows offered there would tempt me – if only I knew about them in time. Now, if they had an RSS feed of their upcoming shows it would be different – but they don’t.

And Red Rocks are not alone. There are thousands of websites on the internet that have interesting content, but don’t provide a convenient way for me to consume it.

Thankfully a new service called feedity has come to my rescue. Their tool allows you to create an RSS feed for any website! So if you want an RSS feed for Red Rocks – no problem!

Update: Feedity also allows you to customize which content makes it into the RSS feed. For example, here’s an updated feed that includes the dates for each show at Red Rocks.


A missed connection at TechCrunch 9

Last night Arrington had a humorous post about a missed connection at the TechCrunch 9 party. Rob and I had the same thought the moment we saw it – “If only they had EventVue!”

Missed connections happen all the time. In fact, you usually do not even know about the opportunities you miss. Perhaps someone that represents a valuable opportunity for you is attending the same event. How would you ever know they were going to be there? The way we currently network at events is random, thin, and incomplete.

Think about the last conference you attended. When you arrived, you had no idea who else would be attending with you. You randomly wandered the conference floor, hoping to stumble into someone interesting to you. Afterwards, you have nothing but a huge stack of business cards and your memory to help you follow up.

Arrington’s right. There is a huge need for better networking tool around events. We can’t wait to show you EventVue.
