Entrepreneurs Everywhere :)

December 5, 2005

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.”
