So it goes. Last night marked the last PandoMonthly event of 2012, ending a three-city extravaganza that put some of the most noteworthy investors and entrepreneurs from New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles in front of the Valley’s latest batch of hopeful startup founders and employees.
AngelList’s Naval Ravikant ended the year with a bang. He managed to redefine the term “humblebrag” while telling the story of how AngelList worked to get the JOBS act passed, told the audience (and the Valley in general) that it’s okay for some startups to be treated like the experiments that they are and, naturally, talked a bit about fundraising and the karma of cash. Oh, and he announced that incubators will soon be accepting applications through AngelList, a first for the company, and talked about the parallels between CraigsList and AngelList.
We’d like to thank Braintree for sponsoring last night’s event and all of the people, both the guests and the audience, who made these events special. We’ll be back next year, with NastyGal’s Sophia Amoruso joining us in Los Angeles, Etsy’s Chad Dickerson in New York, and Airbnb’s Brian Chesky in San Francisco.
The full video is below. See you in January.
