An organization’s values aren’t expressed in words on a page–they are expressed by the people they bring in and the actions they take every day. As an active member in building a sustainable future for our community, our values include acting decisively and boldly, integrity, solving problems when you see them, talking less and working more, helping each other, speaking up and acting when things going wrong, thinking deeply, and always appreciating a glass of wine with friends. We believe that success isn’t just defined by how high you climb yourself, but also by how many people you help bring with you.
Besides startups, we do BBQs in the rain, planting trees, hanging out and lots of other good stuff. We are dynamic. Each person who joins our community adds to our values and character. Their distinctiveness is added to our own. We are a gang of coders, under-cover writers, cat-people, dog people, wise guys, trekies, Meteor-evangelists, geeks, philosophers, ornithologists, party-guys, theoretical physicists, debators, piano-players, idealists, cynics, often sarcastic, anthropologists, out-doorsy, samurais, and more, who work hard to build an inclusive startup and investment community that brings value to all our citizens.
Sound good so far?
