“Better to swim with the sharks, vs. dream” – JD Morris for our Beta Blog!

Our Senior Executive Advisors make great make great advisors, but go to TechCrunch’s Disrupt to see 1st hand what it is all about!


From TechCrunch:  “If you’re serious about startups, we’re still keeping it as real as ever. At Disrupt, everyone is a startupper – no matter if you’re a founder, investor, hacker or tech leader. So much more than just on-stage interviews, Disrupt is where you’ll find the renowned Startup Battlefield competition, a virtual Hackathon, hundreds of startups in Startup Alley, Workshops and legendary networking at our After Parties… and we’re in San Francisco, right where startup dreams began.”
