The 4 coolest people I’ve met in the last 24 hours

One of the things that is really cool about TechStars is the number of amazing people we’re continually surrounded by. Here are a few people I’ve met within the past day that have really impressed me:

Todd and Eric from myBlogLog (now a part of Yahoo)

Todd and Eric win my “most-encouraging people of the week” award. From the moment we started talking about EventVue, they were excited about what we are doing. They dove right in – drawing on the white board, sharing ideas and asking deep questions that forced us to think about what we are doing. These guys are natural marketing masterminds. I look forward to learning more from them.

Casey Schorr from Printfection

I liked Casey from the minute I met him. Casey is only 23, but already he’s the president of his own profitable company in Denver. Printfection provides on-demand printing over the internet for a fraction of the cost of traditional screen printing. Their industry is changing rapidly, and Casey’s company is in the best position to take advantage of these new opportunities. Check them out for yourself. Get a custom designed t-shirt for only $2!

Noah Kagan from Facebook and now Mint

Noah is a genius with a hyperactive mind. He spent the morning talking to us about what he learned from his time at Facebook and how we can build better products. He gave us some great insight on how to get people on board with what we are doing. Apparantly, this comes under the new buzz word called “onboarding”. Yep, I learned something new today! Noah’s passion is contagious and I’m looking forward to getting to know him better.

Todd, Eric, Casey and Noah, you guys blow me away. Thanks for taking the time to hang out with us. I want to be as cool as you when I grow up.
