e15: Gabe Shepherd

I had the opportunity to hang out with Gabe at SXSW this year and it reinforced something I already knew; Gabe knows everybody. He’s a ridiculously nice guy who has started and sold a handful of companies and has helped several other startups on their path through the sometimes treacherous startup world.

Gabe and I chatted about:

  • Las Vegas is about to get a hockey team!
  • Traveling to SXSW to run in to local friends
  • How Gabe got on the advisory board for SXSW
  • What is SXSW V2V?
  • The NaySayers
  • The downtown vegas startup scene
  • What is LaunchKey
  • Local events
  • dontsweatthetech.com

You can reach out to Gabe on twitter at @gabeshep

And in completely unrelated news, I know some amazing folks who are doing some extremely generous and kind things for some foster children. If you can spare a few bucks, I kindly ask that check out their crowd funding campaign at tilt.com called Tilt the Attic.

    Life comes full circle man. Remember when I left my 1st comment on your blog? I don’t remember what it was about, but it would be amazing if you found it.

    Had a great time man, thanks for having me.
