The Start Conference


I recently had the pleasure of working with Messrs. Jeff Veen (Greg’s brother) and Bryan Mason on the launch of their latest enterprise: The Start Conference.

The conference is a great idea: learn how to start a company. And it’s one I wish had been around when Erika and I started Mule. Jeff writes about it rather eloquently on his “weblog”, which is usually devoted to steampunk fan fiction.

They were also a joy to work with. You know a client relationship is going well when they’re comfortable enough to send e-mails like this one:

Can we put the Let’s Start a Company tagline back?

Then Veen will quit punching me and I can buy you beer?

Thoughtful, Committed, and Few
