I had an incredible time hosting LA’s Women in Tech Night out! From the CEO of LA Film School to the Senior Partner of Ogilvy & Mathers, we had amazing women in attendance. The event was completely sold out and an absolute success. Here’s more on the event: http://www.begreat.co/events/37/la-women-in-tech-night-out-by-nanxi-liu
Enplug won the Consumer Electronics Show’s LaunchFest Startup Pitch Competition! Thank you Angel Launch for hosting this fun event. We competed against 8 other great startups ranging from a kickstarter for films to a carsharing company. I really enjoyed meeting the founders of these companies, who came from all parts of the US.
I had such a fun time speaking on this panel. My recommendations (not that I am qualified to give any advice) to anyone that wants to start their own company:
1. Team is everything. You can make a great company with a bad idea and a great team, but you can’t make a great company with a good idea and a bad team.
2. Make sacrifices. You need to be willing to make less money, sleep less, and have less free time.
3. You must love and be proud of what you’re building.
It was very nice to visit Berkeley again and see old friends!
