What's your full name?

Alex Shapiro

Please introduce yourself. Tell us what you do and how it relates to tech startups. Also, please use a real profile photo. Thanks!

Founder of a dining club for designers and entrepreneurs

What are some things you've built on your own initiative? What motivated you to build them?

Fun projects I've built include a website called FriendsDomains, which lets you share all the random domains you bought and why you registered them.

Have you had an experience building something that did not work out? What do you wish you had known earlier?

Biggest lesson is that building a product that people buy is not enough, they also have to love using it and tell their friends about it.

Are you open to being a featured guest? If you're a technologist or founder working with an interesting product or company we'd love for you to come and share your story.

Yes, but I'd prefer to see others featured first
