Entrepreneurs Everywhere :)

The guiding theme of my current vacation is to meet entrepreneurs from the world over. As my travels take me from New York to Paris, London or even Buenos Aires, I am meeting entrepreneurs to hear their stories, aspirations, dreams and be inspired by their passion.

Here is a sample of the companies whose founders I have met or am meeting:

  • Xanga – online blogging and social networking
  • The Ladders – job search with a twist – job seekers pay
  • Mobissimo – travel search engine
  • Brandalley – Overstock.com equivalent of Europe focusing on luxury goods
  • Meetic – largest online dating site in Europe, second largest in the world
  • Photoways – Shutterfly of Europe
  • Cityvox – Citysearch of France
  • 2xmoinscher – Half.com of France
  • MilleMercis – online marketing in France
  • Un77 – online marketing in France
  • Deremate – eBay of Latin America

In hearing so many inspiring stories, I cannot help but be reminded of one of my favorite quotes by Goethe: “Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”
