Does anyone know a good *licensed* and insured contractor that has worked in the outer boroughs? I'm looking at tearing a wall down in my kitchen and a bathroom upgrade and would like some recommendations.
I have three projects looking for leads.
All could become fulltime projects, depending on how far you want to take it. Basically, I'm looking for entrepreneurial self-starters who understand a bit about project management, and how customer needs turn into features. I'd really really like someone who has seen, firsthand, how a product has gotten built. Even if you oversaw the build of your own personal little workout app or a way to track your kid's homework--whatever.
The three are in the following areas:
- PR for early stage startups. If you understand how PR works, because you've worked at a firm, understand why that is broken or doesn't scale, or you've been awesome at hacking your own, and you might want to disrupt that industry, come talk to me.
- Advising companies and personal projects. This project will be an end to going to coffee with a bunch of random people to get advise, never knowing how to string it all together, and not having an idea go anywhere.
- "How to" startup media. Want to turn an event series into a media property? Have you managed content creation? Come up with editorial calendars, thought up cool podcast or speaker guests, etc?
Reply here if any of these sound relevant or interesting.
Are you an accredited investor looking for more dealflow? I have a list that I share deals with monthly called the VCBCC list. Reply here if you'd like to join. Right now, I'm working on deals in SMB purchasing, consumer credit for "thin file" millenials, and we're wrapping up a round for a cleantech play around organic waste.
Also, next Wednesday, I'm hosting an event on how to build an angel strategy. We have just a handful of seats left. This event intentionally, but not exclusively, aims to diversify its audience, so we want to emphasize the inclusiveness of this crowd. (Just in case you thought you'd be walking into a room full of old white dudes.)
Let me know if you're an investor interested in attending.
Are you a sales leader at your startup looking to hone best practices or a new sales rep wanting to learn from experienced pros? Our next Stackup Talks on 10/15 feature top salespeople from Invision and Namely--so encourage your sales teams to attend. We also have one more speaking slot availible--so if you're running a salesteam for a startup that has figured some things out and would like to share with your peers, e-mail email@example.com.
This Wednesday CUBE panel will bring legal, business, and data science experts together to explore the benefits of data collection and usage versus the privacy concerns. It will ask if Blockchain, or other emerging technologies somehow save us and our data from control by (un)trusted intermediaries while advancing the value of a data-driven world.

What does a great experience have in common with a great story? Everything. While many of us seek out the newest and shiniest processes to build more successful products, we often overlook one of the oldest and most effective methods available: a structurally sound story. In this talk, you'll learn how to use story as a foundation for your existing approach, be it Agile, Lean, or some other methodology, and transform complex concepts into simple narratives. (You'll also learn how this concept is different from Agile user story mapping.) Whether you are creating something from scratch, or updating an existing product, mapping the story will help you determine how to envision and develop something people not only love to use, but utilize and recommend often - and do so before committing to expensive pixels and code. We hope you can join us!

Hey Everyone, William Meyer, Novus veteran and early member of the steller Troops engineering team, is speaking at Canary! If you're like me and you've seen a billion Scala talks, then I think you'll really like this one since it's a nice refreshing break from the BigData and reactive themes that tend to dominate scala talks these days. We're excited for it, and we'll see you there! Abstract: How does scalac compile implicit classes? Where does the implicit class get de-sugared and how is the implicit method represented inside the compiler? How does scalac search for a matching implicit method? Learn about the machinery behind the language semantics - the phases: parser, namer, typer and the data structures: Compilation Unit, Context, Tree, Symbol, Scope - by jumping into the code.
