We are well into our 2nd week at the December 2014 Startup Bootcamp. Our teams have heard from investors, developer relations experts, growth hackers and other entrepreneurs who have been in their shoes. Some of the teams have focused their pitches, upgraded their products, implemented new ideas or even pivoted to more specific problems to solve. Everyone has been having a great time and learning plenty (can you say “Drinking from a fire hose”?).
As we talk to the teams and collect their feedback, here are some of the best things that we have overheard about the program, our mentors and the experience here in San Francisco:
“Overall, I enjoyed the honest, straightforward nature of the talk. It gave a really good impression of both how to interact with VCs, and the level of expertise and preparedness that is expected in this field.”
“The book recommendations were great – I plan on reading all of them.”
“I appreciate the honest 1 on 1 advice that he gave.” “Everything she said in that short ten minutes of 1-on-1 time was the best thing I have learned so far.”
“The in-depth guide of how PayPal can be integrated into offline transactions was very eye opening.”
“The tour through the Autodesk Gallery was fun, and and inspiring!”
