Gaurav Oberoi is a family friend. I dropped him off at Stanford today where his company BillMonk was one of the exhibitors at E27 Summit. Gaurav was excited about the event. It is nice to read about these small companies and their ideas. I know that Gaurav and Chuck quit Amazon a few months ago to start their company and they already have a product and active users. Amazing. This is a very different startup climate, where products and users come before powerpoints and funding.
Robert Scoble talks about it in Small Ideas and Big Companies. Michael Arrington of TechCrunch covers it in his Nine Startups in E27 Summit. Glad to see that these small companies are getting a good break in terms of exposure. Thanks to Michael and Robert for paying attention to small companies and others like them.
