Why I joined Boomtrain

Back in October I wrote about my spontaneous move to San Francisco. I had two months to find a startup with great founders, an interesting product, and a strong team. Now, after spending the holidays with my family and friends back in Lithuania, I’m happy to announce that things have worked out to my advantage.

In January 2015 I’m going back to San Francisco. I decided to spend some of the best years of my life working for a killer startup.

What startup? Glad you asked..

Why I Came to San Francisco

Why I Came to San Francisco business development for startups

San Francisco by www.rantlifestyle.com

I came to San Francisco yesterday morning.

This is probably the riskiest and the most spontaneous thing I’ve ever done (except for jumping out of a helicopter in Australia and out of a metal cabin hanging in 134m height in New Zealand).

Why did I do it? 

Throughout the day I met a guy who was getting ready for his second interview with LinkedIn, a guy who was finishing his internship with a giant graphic design company,  a guy who just had an interview with a new fast-growing startup in Palo Alto,  a guy who built a social events app, a guy who left his team in Brazil to enter the US market and is now closing a $200k investment round, a guy who turned a warehouse into a Startup House (and my temporary home),  a girl that is a personal career coach with thousands of YouTube followers, a guy who won $35k for a third place in a Hackathon a day before, a guy who won $50k in the same Hackathon, a guy who built his business in Hawaii, a guy who is a Brazilian Jujitsu pro, and a bunch of others.

And I haven’t even been to any meetups or parties yet. 

I came to San Francisco because I love tech startups and this is the #1 place in the world to be in.

I came because I’m hungry. I want to help startups grow and grow with startups.

And the biggest growth is happening here.

I have no expectations but I’m open for opportunities.

If you think we should meet or want to intro me to someone, reach out via Julius@nark.us or +1 415 960-8759 and let’s do coffee. Just check out my LinkedIn first.

Oh and yeah. The city is pretty cool, too 😉

6 reasons why I love AirBnB and you should too (with $25 travel credit)

AirBnB is the world’s largest community driven hospitality company. Its mission, according to the company, is to make people belong anywhere they go all around the world. Whether it’s an apartment for a night, a castle for a week or a villa for a month, AirBnB has something for you at any price point in over 190 countries…

But enough of this marketing speech. Regulators around the world continue fighting with AirBnB hosts, horror stories from the past are not yet forgotten and even the company’s home city San Francisco took 6 years to legalise it earlier this week.

Despite these few issues, I learnt 6 things about AirBnB that made me fall in love with it. AirBnB is the primary example of Sharing Economy illustrating how technology can change our lives for the better. Don’t believe me? See for yourself.
