What are some tips to make the physical move to Silicon Valley, to ensure you are able to connect with talent/influencers, and find opportunities?


I moved to SF from Michigan for my startup a few years back, best decision ever. Lots of events, lots of talent and very accessible vc's. Its all quite natural. Just get into the mix. there is literally events all day everyday somewhere in the San Francisco Bay area. Use some of the free ticket services to find good Events. Join an incubator like plug and play tech center. Network! make sure to do the Palo Alto scene as well as the San Francisco scene, very different.

This is a great question.

1. Acclimate: Walk around SF and Palo Alto. Get to know the streets, be able to talk like a local, and understand the flow of the city.

2. Attend events. I wrote a post on that here:

3. Be brave. This is a city that rewards fearlessness and strength. Move with confidence, have an open mind/heart, and go do what you're meant to do in this world.
