It’s been awhile since I’ve done an article of the week. This is mostly because I was off the grid 3 out of the 4 Fridays this month. That being said, here we go with Article Of The Week XI.
This week’s article is me actually making up for not including my good friend Sam Rosen (one of the reasons this blog actually exists- when we sat down for the first time in November 2010 he said “hey, you should start a blog” and then I did) and his startup, MakeSpace in my 5 companies that excite me list last week. I had no idea that Sam was publicly coming out that week with the product, and if I knew I would have included him (he wasn’t stealth but wasn’t going after press and trying to validate his business, which he did).
Here is a great article about MakeSpace written by Brad Svrluga from High Peaks Venture Partners titled The Circle of Life: Our New Investment in MakeSpace.
Have a great weekend!
Mark Suster wrote a great post welcoming Sam Rosen into the GRP Partners fold as their first EIR - entrepreneur in residence - since Mark joined the fund. It is a great article and Sam is an awesome dude (and the impetus behind me starting this blog, as he was the first to recommend putting my advice and learning in writing form).
Take heed from how Sam continued to have touch-points with Mark. He naturally kept the relationship warm and is reaping the benefits. I’m looking forward to seeing what Sam builds. One thing I do hope is that Sam catches Mark’s writing bug- the startup world would have another great entrepreneur-writer.
