One of the things I love about the web/tech/venture business is the energy and spirit of people who work in it.

And there are certain people who take that energy and spirit to a new level, like Lucasz in Berlin last week. I spent a good part of yesterday with Saul Klein in London. I did a bunch of meetings at his office and then he hosted a dinner last night with a dozen (maybe more) entrepreneurs.

I love what Saul has done with Open Coffee and Seedcamp .

My month in europe is coming to a close soon but I can tell you that there is a great entrepreneurial scene over here. It’s like NYC was five years ago. It’s just waiting to bust out.

And when it does, it will be because certain people understood what it takes to build the infrastructure of entrepreneurship and they went and built it. Saul is certainly one of them and I was really jazzed to see what he is up to first hand and to meet a bunch of great entrepreneurs last night.


Love that VCs are getting the bug for Europe now. Better too late than never
