Bridging the Gap

By Westley Amica III

Bridging the gap is not only making connections but making the right ones at the right time. Being here in San Francisco is a dream turned into reality for me. Four years ago, I would have never guessed that I would be here at an excellent conference, with an extraordinary group of people. It has made me realize a lot about making relationships, about myself, my philanthropic approach to business, and about life as a whole.

Official Day 1 at the Lean Startup Conference 2016 couldn’t have been better or more fulfilling. Our team was able to sit in on talks with successful entrepreneurs like Rand Fishkin, who expounded on the things that were still unknown to him, even though his business is worth 40M. We got to actually meet and talk to Eric Reis, who made a public comment about a team member who has a sock company (bambuzsocks.com). I personally had a great conversation with Eleanor Bell, a former head of IT at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

No one knows exactly where connections will take them in the future, but we are making the world a smaller place and more connected place, one person at a time.
