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

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.
