Today was a big day as we announced the acquisition of Tech.Co to MVF. This was by no means an easy journey to get to this day, it took 8+ years full time (11+ years from start to finish). Over the last six months it included a trip to London and countless hours on conference and video calls, until we finally signed the deal. Thanks to all our employees, readers, supporters, startups, investors, fans, family members, and pets for all the support as we built this business. Thank you to our officemates for witnessing (Nima that’s you) and celebrating with us (Amy & Steve that’s you) when we finally wrapped it. You can read more about it on my personal site, linked in my bio.
This past weekly #CES2018 was a blur! We kicked things off with 1800+ attendees at our 5th annual CES Startup Night where 15 startups competed for a fast track spot in the 2018 Startup of the Year program. Then came the rain and lots of it. Followed by lots of robots, self driving vehicles, VR, health and wellness, smart cities, and AI voice products among a sea of 120k or attendees. I met CES Startup Night champ Lishtot and also got to catch up with our reining Startup of the Year, Oska Wellness. Finally, I met with lots of friends both new and old. I am wiped out. Thank goodness it’s a holiday weekend, I’ll need it to properly recover.
Random plate? Or is the universe reflecting my recent trip to Maine back to me while visiting my favorite Las Vegas coffee spot?
