Yesterday I woke at 4-15 and headed to my partner Gary’s house in Del Mar to grab his Tesla and fake self drive with him to Los Angeles for a day of meetings with founders and limited partners.
I have been doing these trips from Coronado for years and each time I come home I am amazed at how much bigger and better the start-up and growth scene have become.
Venice, Santa Monica, Downtown and West Hollywood continue to boom.
We ended the night with a great meal at Katana sushi with Coinmine founder Farbood Nivi to catch up and talk start-ups and crypto.
By 8-30 we were back in the Tesla fake self-driving home.
I was in bed by 11-30.
Not an easy day, but no major traffic snafu’s and a fresh appreciation for LA and Southern California life as a seed investor.
