At Dreamforce last October, a few colleagues and I were sitting at a hotel bar when a gentleman took an empty seat next to us. After a few minutes, he turned to me and asked, “Are you Trish Bertuzzi from the internet?” I replied that I was.
We started to chat and he shared that he had founded a tech company in San Francisco. My first thought was "yup, you and about a million other people." But the more he shared his vision, the more interested I became.
