Whoa! Last week, OpenStudy’s entire team took a trip to San Francisco to meet future business partners, advisors, investors, potential hires, and enjoy the sights of the city; we can say all of those were accomplished and there are pictures to prove it.
Our headquarters for the week was on a very steep block. We frequently joked if one of us tripped outside our place, tumbling down the rest of the block would likely ensue. Below is an image from the top of the block; our flat was on the right side.
The agenda going into the week was ambitious. Multiple meetings everyday spanned from San Francisco coffee shops to Facebook’s HQ. Below are a few pictures of the team and our meeting places of choice.
Lunch at the legendary Xerox Parc was insightful — the mouse originated here. Above is a picture of the entire team only a few hallways down from the office of OpenStudy co-Founder, Ashwin Ram.
Computer science pioneer and OpenStudy advisor, David Pollak shared an afternoon co-working with us at his local coffee shop.
Touring the Facebook headquarters was inspirational. Here is a picture of the team on the Facebook Wall.
We met with current students attending Stanford and received feedback about our latest iteration of the site.
Our trip wasn’t all business meetings and late night coding. The images above are just a few of the places we visited — there were many more but we’ll keep it to the highlights! Alright, back to work in our missed home of Atlanta, Ga.
