Bye bye USA 🇺🇸
CoFounder Weekly #57: August 25, 2019
|Greg Kubin||Aug 25, 2019|
Don’t worry, this isn’t some doom and gloom issue of CoFounder Weekly.
We’ll let you come to your own conclusion about the direction of the country.
Rather, CoFounder Weekly is going global 🌎!
I’ll be spending the fall as a #nomad wandering around Bali, Israel, Berlin, and ??? with my wife Dana (this is Greg).
Wisam will be holding it down in NYC and I’ll be sharing my observations from abroad.
Say goodbye (or hello if we haven’t met) at our CFW breakfast this upcoming Tuesday!!
CoFounder Weekly is a newsletter about what’s 🔥 and 💩 in startupville.

In our conversation, we explore Twitter from all the angles:
How Twitter is a serendipity engine
The keys to bringing online community offline
