About a month ago, I was invited by Eric Ries (also an investor at ToutApp), to speak at Ignite – Lean Startup.

I decided to talk a bit about the big irony in my life right now: how I spent nearly a year and a half working on a startup called Braintrust that was aiming to “kill Email” and then ended up doubling down on a different idea that is aiming to “evolve Email.”

The entire event was fantastic.

Special Thanks goes out to Sarah Milstein for doing an awesome job picking the speakers, planning the entire event and running it remotely!

Overall, this was a fantastic experience. Being up there was a huge rush and I met a ton of cool people at the event.

Next time though, I think I’ll try to speak a little bit slower.
