Stack Ranking and New Connections in Silicon Valley - Paubox

I continue to believe that at its core, Silicon Valley is about people. The hyper density of smart, driven folks working on tech is simply overwhelming and it’s one of the things I love most about being here.

Last night I extended my network a bit more thanks to an invite from Matt Kamp. Matt and I met at a Founders Pledge dinner earlier this year and we’ve stayed in touch since.

He was in town for a Venture Beat conference and wisely made the best of his trip by organizing a small pau hana get together at The Cavalier.

The attendees were:

Turns out John Cowgill was at our Demo Day for Batch 18 of 500 Startups last year and remembered my presentation. That’s pretty cool.

Amir Hosseini really likes what we’re doing at Paubox. I returned the compliment by showing him my Uber Eats purchase history and how prominently Curry Up Now shows up =) He also recommended I check out the Worldz conference, which I will do.

I learned about stack ranking via email questionnaires from Spencer Padway. I’d like to try that for Paubox and trends to look out for in 2018.

I didn’t get a chance to talk to Skot much, as we were at far ends of the table.

Matt Kamp is SVP at Influence & Co, a content marketing agency that specializes in creating engaging content that fuels companies’ content marketing efforts and positions their key employees as influencers in their industries. I’d like to see if we can work together next year.
