Quote of the Day

“…while the local startup climate has definitely loosened up in that period, the technology entrepreneurs I talk to here still feel like members of an underground subculture, operating on the periphery of a business environment dominated by bigcos (e.g., Microsoft and Amazon). By contrast, starting a company seems like an obvious career move to many in the Bay Area, and a much larger chunk of the tech workforce there has cycled through one or more startups, even if their current gig is at a public company.”
