July in Alaska helps (although this summer has a fun, European twist). It’s Sunday morning. Take a deep breath. It’s summer time. Go for a walk. Or a run. Play with your family. Take a nap this afternoon. Read a book. Go to a movie. Chill. Last week, I had two close friends tell me some version of “I’m too busy.&# One insightfully said “I have no time these days. I’m doing too much.&#

Introducing FG Press

I remember sitting at my kitchen table in Homer, Alaska in July 2010 at 2am almost crying with frustration. Every year or so my partners and I at Foundry Group create a new company, or start a new project, that we believe had the potential to change the way something works in our world, while simultaneously helping the entrepreneurs we work with, and the entrepreneurs we aspire to work with. For example, in 2006, we co-founded Techstars.
