Hey Philipp — great analysis and right on the spot. It’s the reason why I moved to California in 1999 and started a very successful software company in Palo Alto. But it’s also the reason why I moved back to Europe, just a few weeks ago. We have an amazing startup scene in Berlin, Munich, Zürich, Stockholm, London… and they all deserve to get support in changing the game in Europe.
I moved San Francisco based Society3 to Lucerne, Switzerland and now try to help European startup do what they need most — live the spirit they admire so much in Silicon Valley.
Wish me luck to do that :)
I definitely wish you all the best in California — please pitch at our next event in San Francisco: http://www.meetup.com/gotostartups/
