Startup School Reception Dinner

by indy

We walked into a room with a giant orange Y on the wall. With nice chill music playing in the background we were greeted by a robot that shook our hands. Within a few minutes, all three of us were in conversations with some amazing people with great new ideas for making people’s lives easier. It was mind blowing.

Tonight was the reception dinner for the people attending Y-Combinator’s “Startup School”. Without going into detail, Y-Combinator is a company that starts startups. They accept a few companies each year for an incubator style program.  Startup School is an event on Stanford campus tomorrow, which will be a whirlwind tour of the challenges involved in starting a company.

We had a great time at the dinner tonight and are really pleased with the reaction we got to our idea from everyone we met. It was really rewarding to hear people eager to try out all of the things we are doing with mobile phones. There are a couple of interesting companies that we could possibly partner with and we are looking forward to meeting them and everyone else tomorrow morning at the Startup School.

On finishing note we’d like to say hi to all of the new friends we made tonight. See you guys tomorrow!
