Greetings from the Valley

Hi… i'm sitting in a Peet's Coffee in Belmont, CA waiting for my meeting with a female VC.  I'm totally exhausted, a little disappointed and exhilirated at the same time. 

I'm still sort-of on east coast time.  So, technically I went to bed at 3am, and woke up at 7:30am (4:30 here).  Couldn't sleep.

It's been a bit of a whirlwind.  Last night, I pitched Nexpense at Women 2.0's 4th annual pitch night, in front of about 300 people.  It was definitely my best pitch, yet.  I nailed it.  It was a 7 minute pitch followed by 7 minutes of questions from the judges.  We didn't win.  But, it was a GREAT experience.  I met lots of great women.

They had 3 “fireside” chats with some GREAT women founders. Lots of great advice.

I connected with the Founders of Women 2.0 and Lesa Mitchell from the Kauffman Foundation.  GREAT Connections for StartupChicks.

And I made one good connection with a VC. I'm learning… it's all about connections.

Gotta run…
