    This was one of the best Startup Grind events yet. One of the best I've attended with any group in a while. Nothing fancy, no frills. Just an awesome interviewer and a super cool interviewee with stories, experience, and lessons learned to impart. THANK YOU Sam, Wade, for an awesome, informative evening!
