    Accelerator 2.0

    September 05, 2012 Share
    Over the past year I have been a mentor at an accelerator called Haxlr8r. Haxlr8r, based just north of me in Shenzhen, China, is a unique accelerator since it is the only accelerator to focus exclusively on hardware startups. The targeted hyper-focus of the cohort paid dividends as everyone is in the same space and learned from each other and shared their experiences. That got me thinking, why not do the same for software!?!? Over the past few months,  I’ve been helping organize the first ever early-stage startup accelerator in Hong Kong. This accelerator is not like any of its kind. It is the only accelerator to...

    10x10 Shanghai Recap

    August 30, 2012 Share
    Last week I traveled up to Shanghai, China to speak at the 10x10 event: bringing in 10 tech “pioneers” to speak for 10 minutes each to a crowd of entrepreneurs. I put pioneers in quotes, since there were 9 pioneers plus me speaking. It was a great way to connect with the startup scene in China. The event was sponsored by Chinaccelerator, an early stage startup accelerator that has 10 companies in a cohort right now. I met with most of the 10 companies and was very impressed; most, but not all, were doing mobile or social media startups. People in the West understand that Facebook and...

    Google Rocking the London Startup Scene

    August 17, 2012 Share
    While I was in London last week, Telerk’s UK Country Manager and I took some time to visit the Google Campus, a massive co-working and startup incubation space. There are six floors of co-working space where you can apply to be a resident if you are a startup based in London and an awesome cafeteria/coffee shop where anyone can come in for the day. On the top floor is Google’s offices. Even though Telerik has a London office, we registered online and spent a day working at the co-work space, mostly to get a feel for the co-work space and check out the scene. (Also, Telerik’s KendoIU was...
