Remember how last summer the awesome readers of this blog generously contributed to my project so I could participate as a passenger on the Millennial Trains Project? We’ll this is one of the many good things that came out of the trip. I was thrilled to receive an email last week from two of the people I met on the train asking if I knew anyone that would be interested in hosting a screening of startupland in Pittsburgh. My reply – yes- of course, Pittsburgh would love to host a screening. A few emails later, TechShop kindly stepped up as the location for the screening.
Thank you to everyone who made my journey on the train trip possible. I am so pleased that my fellow train passengers continue to think of Pittsburgh. One of the mentors on the train, who joined our group for the last part of the trip from Pittsburgh to Washington, DC is Jonathon Perrelli who (in addition to offering me some sage advice) is also co-producer of startupland. If you are interested in startups be sure to follow @perrelli on Twitter.

This is absolutely worth the watch for anyone who even thinks of becoming an entrepreneur one day. A few years from now, whenever anyone who has a kernal of an idea and wants to launch a startup or join an accelerator and execute on their idea, they’ll ask for advice from established founders and everyone will say the same thing, “watch Startupland.” This is the first of its kind to provide budding entrepreneurs the groundwork of knowledge they’ll need to get their idea off the ground.
