I'd personally like to see an Austin event (since I'm moving there in July). ;)
Tyson Ferguson@whattheferguson · Co-Founder, Chief Product Officer @ Clyp
@sethlouey Agreed! Would love to see this in Austin as well. There's a large, thriving tech community here that would definitely benefit by having On Deck around. Seth - what brings you to Austin?

@whattheferguson want a change of scenery and expand my network in the startup world. Been in Upstate NY for awhile. Plus, my fiancée loves warm weather. :)

@eriktorenberg @sethlouey @whattheferguson - i'd love to host Austin as well. I've upped my BBQ game substantially since moving here last August.

Hey Everyone, One of my favorite hobbies is bringing people together. I especially love bringing great entrepreneurs together who are about to start, join, or just explore their next "thing." Think of this like a Global EIR community. If this is you, fill out the form and let's jam! (100% Confidential :) Would love to hear feedback! Edit: YC, Slow, and Ludlow Ventures are our first "collaboration partners" signed up -- if you'd like to help host and/or sponsor email me at erik.torenberg@gmail.com. That would be VCs who meet great entrepreneurs before they start next co (if they opt-in), or great companies that want to meet top tech talent as they explore whether to start or join their next thing (if they opt-in :)

@eriktorenberg always had a feeling you were going to work on something like this :) –– often, it's the people you're around who influence what you end up working on (or whom you end up working on things with)

When people ask me how to break into the startup world, I tell them to get in a room and start talking and doing all they can to be helpful. Cheers to Erik for creating the room. We have all needed this for so long.

An On Deck brunch helped introduce me to the Valley. An On Deck dinner helped me connect the dots for my last move. The On Deck community makes up my personal advisory board. TL;DR - if you want to be inspired for your next idea and meet great people while doing it, you have to join On Deck.
