Saturday's RamenCamp was an amazing day of passionate speakers and entrepreneurs. Whether it was Seth Lieberman laying the smack down talking about "SteakCamp" and "square pegs & round holes" or David Hauser inspiring everyone with the story of Grasshopper and the importance of culture, every speaker shared important lessons and sage advice for really building a business.
It was truly inspiring to see so many people excited about not just starting a company, but letting go of the, "I need investment to do this" mantra. With all of this coming together yesterday and a Bolt Bus trip to NYC giving me time to reflect, I want to share my thoughts on building a company in this climate as I set out to start my next company.
