Here is something I can cross off my bucket list: San Francisco. The two weeks in San Francisco went fast. It was over in a flash. Looking back, it was like being in a movie. If there is anything this city has shown me, it’s that you can always fit in more meetings. Who needs sleep anyway?

San Francisco city is a reflection of the famous rolling hills that pepper the landscape. It’s a city of wild contradictions. Eye watering wealth next to extreme poverty. Aging infrastructure next to world dominating rideshare companies. Killer street food next to restaurants serving food I’ve never heard of. And most importantly for start-ups travelling to SF, advice which leaves you thinking you’ll be the next unicorn followed by advice that leaves you curled up in a corner wishing you stayed in that cushy corporate gig.
