#founder conference summary with @mint @dropbox @thefunded @davemcclure #daily notes

Agenda backwards:
#incubator panel
Is it worth to give up 5-10% of the company to incubators like ycom
techstars or foundersinstitute?
Answer of startups: yes and more
#pitches - sales list: looks for cofounder
#PR panel
Traditional media guys try to sell us trasitional media like radio and
newspaper. WTF?
- anyway, they explained how to get their attention.
simple answer: discover a single person, pitch him on an event and
follow up again and again. its like a hard sales job!
Forget press releases!
lean startup: (measure, iterate, listen users, simplify)
AARRR: acquisition, activation, retention, referral, revenue
stop developing features and start scale if u found meaning
#dropbox @DrewHouston
