I just wanted to give my brief viewpoint on the people I’ve met during the summer..
You’re an awesome designer and most importantly an artist. You’re incredibly creative, able to throw stuff together in no time, and still make it look very professional. You have also a very cool view on life for a guy a little older than myself, which I think is a great thing.
Very bright guy that got an eye out for almost anything in the space. I didn’t get too meet you that much, but from the little I saw I can tell that you’re capable of great things, as well as being able to move quickly. Which is needed. All in all I think you have a great perspective on life, that I’m not sure I fully grasp or comply with, but that I respect to its full extent.
What can I say.. Duude. (Maybe a brother?)
I really haven’t been able to talk much to the TechStars granddad. I just know, from what I’ve seen and experienced, that you’re onto something big. I feel like even though we’re very different in age, I can still understand your personality and way of life. I feel like I know you, without actually being sure of anything. I like you for being open-minded about just about anything. I like you for your experience and knowledge in the market. I’m just hoping that we can take it to the next level in the next couple of years.
I’m very impressed by you as a person. I like your way of connecting with people, and being able to talk to just about anyone without problems. I like how you give everyone a chance, even if they’re different (from Sweden) or don’t know really know how to handle the situation they’re in. You’re sort of the guy with the flashlight that IS ABLE to lead people to enlightment. Enlightment being making people aware of themselves, and who they are in the context of, say, TechStars. I also envy your skills (*twinkle*).
When you are close to a guy like Brian, you can’t help but feel special. He’s doing his own thing, giving us a show, but in my mind this play he’s pulling off is a reflection of something very pure and unique to him as a person. Brian has alot of benefits, but also, like everyone else some weaknesses. Giving a show covers those parts in a good way, and adds alot to his personality. It also, sometimes feel like a mask he’s putting up, to distract us from the other parts of him. This is not a bad thing, not at all, it’s just different. Brian is very gifted, and kind of modest about it. I really like Brian for his honesty in everything, and for the special show that he pulls off – every second of the day.
Is a very focused guy that is also somewhat sensitive to his surroundings. Ben can both be the guy randomly starting to talk to people as and he who stands in the corner waiting to be approached. The latter rarely happens, and connecting with people seems very natural to him, but he has a komplex personality, and just wants one part to shine through at the same time. I feel like I didn’t get to know all of you, just some parts. Perhaps the TechStars parts? Or maybe you’re just that focused.
The rest, sadly, I didn’t get to know that well. I really wish to do so in the future though. And please don’t cap me if I didn’t spell your names right, I didn’t look them up so I hope they’re right… Cheers mates, we’ll all keep in touch.
