Former President of the Unites States of America, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, may have been the first to bring relevance to the fireside chat, but Buddytruk CEO Brian Foley has taken it to another level, speaking to a packed house at General Assembly on Monday evening.
Although Buddytruk has existed for little over a year, Brian and the Buddytruk team are now rugged veterans of the startup world, as he shared his experiences on all things startups, entrepreneurs, tech, and Silicon Beach.
It was an awesome experience for the whole team, including Director of Business Development Russell Tuchman, Creative Director Tim Kolenut, and Content Director Adam Jacobs (Hey! That’s me!).
Even though Buddytruk launched only a few months back on August 1, 2014 in Los Angeles, we’ve been able to traverse the difficult waters of getting a startup off the ground and have helped hundreds of truck-less folks with their moving and hauling needs via our nifty iPhone app.
It wasn’t all that long ago that we were just a bunch of guys with an idea, so we’re thrilled to be able to help guide a potential new entrepreneur with the next billion dollar idea.
Quite possibly the biggest takeaway from the fireside chat, and as harsh as it sounds, was this quote from Brian: “You’re idea? It’s worthless. Execution is where the real value exists.” Truth. So find yourselves some likeminded fellas and get that idea off the ground!
The evening was an awesome success, and we can’t wait to see you at our next fireside chat!
Tech In Motion at Cross Campus
Rounding out the week, the Buddytruk team spent Wednesday evening at Cross Campus in Santa Monica for the Tech In Motion event. The team was able to meet some awesome new startups, like Gather and Burner.
A great office space, a great vibe (with free cheese and crackers!), and some awesome startups on the rise – Tech in Motion showcased some of the best of Silicon Beach. Plus, did we mention there was free cheese and crackers?
Stay tuned for more Buddytruk news, and remember, we’d be happy to help bring your Christmas tree home for the holidays!
