Well, after some of the most intense weeks of my life TechStars is finally over. I have to admit that pretty much everything since our TechCrunch post has been a blur. Trying to keep up with everything has been a real challenge and brought out time management skills I haven’t had to use since finals week my senior year of undergrad (ok it wasn’t that long ago, but it sure feels like it’s been forever). And yet somehow I managed to survive…and thrive.
We made it through our investor’s day and wrapped up TechStars. It’s been quite an amazing experience that I wouldn’t trade for the world. The mentoring and connections have been priceless. Although stressful, this past week or so has only furthered my excitement for TechStars from all the random connections that have been sprouting up either directly or indirectly from this program. And although we’re wrapping up and TechStars is over it’s by no means an end. It’s a new phase of the company that I am really looking forward to.
I’ve spent a few days trying to settle in (and furnish) my new apartment, but for better or worse it’s time to get back to the crazy hours of work I kept up during TechStars. I’m way behind on emails, bugs, and pushing stuff out as a result of TechStars wrapping up, Investor Day, and moving, but it’s time to finally get caught up and move forward again. So to any of you reading this that are getting upset that I haven’t responded to your email, fixed the bug you found, or pushed out a feature you’ve requested I want to appologize and let you know that I am finally going to be able to get caught up on all of this.
In short, although I’m sad to see TechStars end it is really just the beginning of a new phase for us here at Intense Debate. A new phase that I’m am very excited about. We’ve got a lot of cool stuff in the works and hopefully you’ll be seeing some of it very soon.
