In Silicon Valley, Being Helpful and Persistent Opens Doors
Meet Yu-Kai Chou, the founder of RewardMe, a cool iPhone app for restaurant rewards. On Friday, Yu-Kai got to sit down with prominent investor Jeff Clavier for a one-hour lunch.
How did Yu-Kai separate himself from the countless aspiring entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley? By being persistent. First, he joined LetsLunch and started meeting other entrepreneurs over lunch, with no set agenda, just to network. By consistently being nice and helpful with everyone, he quickly emerged from the lot. That’s how you open doors in Silicon Valley: you never know if the next person you are chatting with may later make an introduction that will change your startup.
All the team at LetsLunch wish Yu-Kai the best.
