On the tail of raising $750,000 through Japan’s first AngelList Syndicate led by Naval Ravikant, I’m heading to Silicon Valley for 2 weeks for several reasons:
- To meet many MakeLeaps investors for the first time. These people are special because they trusted us and invested, often after a short email exchange or just a phone call.
- There are many people that our friends, investors and advisors would like to introduce me to, and I’m excited to meet lots of new people experienced in B2B SaaS.
- To spread the word about the Japan startup scene. It’s still small compared to Silicon Valley, but every day we’re seeing more startups, incubators, investors and funds popping up. It’s an exciting time to be running a startup in Japan!
If there is anyone in San Francisco you think I should meet, please let me know. I’m available on firstname.lastname@example.org.
