Last year we got connected to some guys from Hollywood who talked to us (I can’t decide if we pitched them or they pitched us) on doing a “TechStars Reality Show.” The whole thing seemed seriously sketchy to me, but I knew it was a no-op when they made us a proposal for us to do all the work, come up with all the money, and they would get all the revenue. Clearly I don’t understand how things work in Hollywood. So we punted.
But the idea remained. We’ve been doing plenty of TechStars related video (all up on TechStars.tv) and just kept coming back to the idea of a weekly web series. A few weeks ago, David and I decided “screw it – let’s just give it a shot.” Five minutes a segment, one a week.
The first two segments are up. Week 1 is “The Selected Few”
Week 2 is “Orientation”
Tell me what you think.
