    Hey guys,

    I'm an entrepreneur based in Canada that recently moved to Silicon Valley. My company is venture backed and very popular amongst college students. It grew to a point where I had to step down to leave room for more experienced people - I also desired to seek other opportunities that were really exciting. In startup land liquidation takes a very long time (unless you've been acquired or raised a shit tonne of money to take off the table).

    I've been a forum lurker for a while now. But recently bee convinced of the benefit of being an active member. Awesome community and I'm looking forward to contributing.

    Welcome. I would also love to hear more about your story. I started my own biz at during the end of my college years. I just can't accept that others will do a better job then me running a business (part of my own competitive nature, and I can't step down).
