Techstars London day 29: At full speed now

Special shout out today to two people: Dom for his encouraging tweets – thank you! Tak, because I truly forgot to mention in yesterday’s post how excited I am he’s back from Korea! And without further ado…

Today was one of those days that went by pretty quickly but at the same time it felt like it was never gonna end. Weird sensation. Must be the time-warping striking again.

Started the day with a little bit of coding. At 10am, we went onto a mini-MBA about dealing with board meetings. Very interesting and helpful, though I found out that CTOs are usually the first ones to drop from those meetings; at least when the company grows.

The rest of the day was spent coding some more, looking through CVs of potential developers and hunting down an annoying bug in Chrome beta with the Google Maps API. By the time I got some info that would help me fix the stupid bug I had to dash off for a hiring event where I got to talk to a bunch of lovely developers hungry for work. It was great to see their enthusiasm and interest with Headliner; so hopefully something good comes out of that – we all know how hard it is to hire good the best people!

And before you know it, we are down to 69 days to go. Since i had to rush I forgot to take a photo of the countdown, so I made this instead (still want to point out we’re down to the 60s now…):

Countdown to Demo day, countdown to party day!
Countdown to Demo day, countdown to party day!

Night night!

Summary of the day:

Time I went to sleep last night: 00:19
Total hours of sleep: 6.11
Mood: Positive, productive and motivated!
Soundtrack of the day: Running your own company sometimes feel crazier than the video for the soundtrack of the day (don’t judge!).
