The Post-post-Modern Startup (there should be a French term for this)
Ashil and I worked together, closely together, for four months before we met in person. Four! During that timespan
- my niece was born
- we renamed the company
- we designed and sold over 8000 watches
- I suffered two bulging discs (old man…)
- you probably watched some cool movies
Our first meeting involved my picking up Ashil and his wife Sejal at the airport and then going to In-and-Out (the west coast version of “McDonald’s”). They were in town for his big 3-0 (and went to see the 49ers play).
That, my friends, is modern entrepreneurship.
(by the way, it took a few more months before we had a proper face-to-face work meeting. Hijinx ensues)
