Oh, come on.... You had to see that coming from like a mile away.
Totally "Inside VC" but in the private equity world, when you work on deals, they're often given a code name, so it doesn't leak out what deal you're working on. We managed the round using a spreadsheet called "Project Walt" which I've tweeted about a few times.
Walt is the name of the Ample Hills cartoon cow.
So, you know, if it ever comes up in VC bar trivia, you're covered.
It feels great to work with great founders, co-investors, and to have been inspired by someone that was at the top of the retail investing field for such a long time.
You know what's also made in Brooklyn? These candles, which are crushing it on Kickstarter. They're the Warby of candles. :)

Want to know what it's like to design Spring for mobile first, to design packaging and a brand for Hungryroot food products, and to go from designing for the web to designing a physical retail space? Check out our extra special Design Stackup this Wednesday night. Also, we *maybe* could squeeze in one more presentation from a designer who works at a startup. It's about 10-15 minutes tops.
Do you live in Greenpoint and make for an awesome dinner guest. I think there's *one* seat open for our group tech/startup/creative dinner tomorrow night. It's $50/head.

Continuous Improvement has long been a tool used in manufacturing and software development to solve problems faster and to structure work around learning. But, when we only improve the development side, we end up creating efficient processes to develop products that never get used. In this talk, I'll introduce the Product Kata and how it can create products that achieve business goals and satisfy user needs, with a walk through of a real life example. We’ll explore how this way of working brings about a culture of collaboration, experimentation, and metric oriented results. Presenter Melissa Perri is a Product Management and UX coach, consultant, and worldwide speaker.

When you RSVP, please remember to purchase a ticket on our ticketing site: https://www.universe.com/nycenterprisesales. What do the first ever sales rep at OpenTable, the senior leader at Salesforce, and the head of Latin America sales at Bloomberg say is the most important factor in the success of a sales organization? It comes down to sales culture. You can have the best talent and the slickest process, but without a cohesive, competitive, and supportive sales culture, the results won't happen. Next month, we have the first ever sales rep hired at OpenTable who led them to epic success over a 12 year career before moving on to a few early stage startups. Our second guest was one of the earliest employees for Salesforce and currently runs their Salesforce for Startups group. Our third guest led sales for Bloomberg in Latin America and several other financial organizations, focused on helping those organizations instill a strong and positive sales culture. Join us for this conversation and learn how you can build a culture that drives high performance and gives sales reps and managers the incentive and room to succeed.

Autolifts takes advantage of Scala’s advanced type system to yield a set of abstractions for working with complex objects. We’ll introduce the concept of lifting and why you might want to incorporate this pattern in your code. Then we’ll show how the library takes that concept, mixes it with dependent types and implicit extensions to automatically lift in a type safe manner. Finally, we’ll show how using these extensions simplifies code, reducing boilerplate while making code more easily understood and maintained.

We present a talk by Filipe Ximenez about his work on Tapioca an API wrapper framework. Additional lightning talks are welcome on recent launches, useful packages, life hacks and other topics of interest. Title: Better API wrappers with Tapioca. Using a web API wrapper is often painful. Wrappers documentation are often poor requiring us to reach to the official API docs, there's absolutely no consensus on how to expose API endpoints neither how far should a wrapper go to help us making HTTP requests. And if using wrappers is hard, writing them requires too much effort and time. Although most of them support similar features, none of them share any code, so every wrapper developer has to design endpoint requests, auth, pagination, error handling and tons of other stuff. Tapioca (https://github.com/vintasoftware/tapioca-wrapper) is a API wrapper framework that solves all this problems and allows learning how to use a new service wrapper in no time and writing new ones in a few minutes. Speaker: Filipe is a Python/Django developer from Brazil and works at Vinta Software (www.vinta.com.br).

NYU Courant Institute 251 Mercer St., Room 109 - New York, NY
We are very pleased to host Professor Emanuel Derman, Columbia University. Abstract: You can try to understand the world using data, intuition, models and theories. Raw data has no voice. It takes models, theories and intuition to make use of data. Models are metaphors that explain the world we don’t understand, in terms of worlds we do. They tell you only what something is more or less like. Theories are descriptions that try to tell you what something really is. It takes great intuition to discover a correct theory. Emanuel is a professor at Columbia University, where he directs their program in financial engineering. He is the author of My Life As A Quant. His latest book is Models.Behaving.Badly: Why Confusing Illusion with Reality Can Lead to Disasters, On Wall Street and in Life. He was born in South Africa but has lived most of his professional life in Manhattan in New York City, where he has made contributions to several fields.
