Cultural attache for Founders in the Bay – Singapore

One of my favorite roles is “cultural attache” to visiting tech founder from aboard. I truly enjoy sharing the uniqueness of the Silicon Valley Bay Area especially San Francisco’s culture and tech scene. It’s always a buzz with startup and tech meetups and activities. This is why the Silicon Valley remains the tech Mecca of the world. I love the events, demos, pitches, hackathons, meetups, happy hours, conferences and so many more.

Tomorrow starts my escapades with the Singaporeans visiting for Founders in the Bay. They are a select group of future tech entrepreneurs here for the 11th Founder’s Showcase with Kevin Rose, Aaron Levie & Hilten Shah.
