When I came to the Valley to raise funds for my first startup I called up Bubs connecting from a TechCrunch article he wrote . Not only did he spend time with me through calls from Hawaii, he introed me to others from YC who went on to have significant impact in influence, connections and capital for my startup.
Bubs taught me an important lesson. A lending hand to a fellow entrepreneur can take you a long way. I am sure all of us entrepreneurs can relate to this article very deeply.
