The Do More Faster Book Tour – Week 2

Comments (4)

Well, week 1 of the Do More Faster book tour was a blast, but I’ve contemplated renaming it the “Do More Faster And Then Sleep All Weekend to Recover Book Tour” based on the empirical data from my 24 hour sleep session from Saturday at noon to Sunday at noon.

The book tour is in Boulder on Monday and Tuesday, then Denver on Tuesday night, and then Boston on Thursday.  If you haven’t yet signed up and want to come, there are still some slots open as follows:

Monday Night – 10/18 – Two Guys and a Book – Beer with Brad and David.   We’ll be at the Dairy Center for the Arts (2590 Walnut Street) from 7pm to 9pm tonight handing out book, drinking beer, and having fun.

Tuesday – 10/19 – We have two events during the day at the TechStars Bunker.  If you are interested in TechStars, come to TechStars For An Hour from 2:30pm – 3:30pm. Then from 4pm – 5pm we’ll be having an event called Angels in the Architecture where we will discuss the local angel and VC landscape with co-panelists Howard Diamond, Brad Bernthal, Dave Carlson, Ray Crogan, Ari Newman, and Paul Berberian.  Howard, Brad, Ari, and Paul also contributed to the book so come and get them to sign your copy!  You need to register for each event - TechStars For An Hour or Angels in the Architecture.

Tuesday Night – 10/19 – We are having the big Boulder / Denver event at the Boulder Denver New Tech Meetup on Tuesday night.  As of now 425 people are coming so don’t miss out.  We have a bunch of the contributors from the book attending – maybe I’ll make them read their chapters.

Finally, on Thursday, I’ll be in Boston.  We are doing an Angels in the Architecture event from 2:30pm – 3:30pm and then heading over to the MASS Challenge from 5pm – 9pm.

    Keep it up Brad. Just got done reading the book today…learned quite a few things:

    1. I liked this example: Real estate = location, location, location. Techstars = people, people, people.
    2. The importance of having cofounders that have complementing experiences.
    3. Your yoda quote: DO things….dont try things.
    4. There is a techstar mentor right here in Boise, ID!

    Lots of lessons from people who have done it. Great book! Thank you for writing this and passing off these experiences.

    Is there a way we can get you to extend way up to Montréal, somewhere in the next few months? We are having a StartupCamp in January, if that could work for you…

      We will make it up to Montreal some time in Q1.
