Happy 2014 Silicon Valley!

Happy 2014 Silicon Valley and the Bay Area! No Scarlet Plague has stricken the Bay Area in 2013 and no dot com crash has hit as of yet. But some of the signs of a bubbly dot com bubble are appearing. From a frothy, unsustainable real estate market that has pushed rent costs higher and higher, to increased traffic of Tesla Model S 4 door sedans piloted by GoogleGlassHole drivers running up and down the 101. It’s here. The Tech Bubble. When will it pop? No one knows. Yet. Though some of the high flyers of the Tech World in this bubble are different from the era of the past. Some of these booming tech companies in SiliconCali are actually profitable and are minting money as I type.

Venture Lab Survey for Team RingCrowd

The free online Technology Entrepreneurship class through Stanford University is basically an online version of Y Combinator. Startup Teams form around a central business idea and develop that idea using Lean Startup techniques. Team RingCrowd developed this survey in order to understand the biggest limitations an entrepreneur faces when forming a startup company and would really appreciate your feedback by filling out the following:


We will never SPAM you. We believe that the marketing model of SPAM-until-you-buy is outdated and doesn’t work. By checking the box you are guaranteed to receive a follow up email from us (and one only) and can opt-in on a per email basis if you would like to continue receiving updates (instead of opting-out). If we are going to send something out we want for it to be helpful for the recipient.

Thank you so very much for your time and we really hope everyone is having fun with the class assignments.
