In this episode of Dalton & Michael, we discuss the hot button issue of… living in the Bay Area! If you’re starting a company, does it need to be in San Francisco?
One rare aspect of this episode: it’s one where Michael and I disagree.
In this episode, we talk about:
Michael lives right in the middle of San Francisco. I live about 30 minutes outside of SF. While we disagree on exactly where we each want to live, we agree on this: if you want to maximize your odds of success as a founder — and why wouldn’t you want that? — you should live in the Bay Area.
Dalton is Managing Director, Architect and Group Partner at YC. He was the cofounder and CEO of imeem (acquired by MySpace in 2009), and the cofounder and CEO of App.net.
