Distant Suns in Mongolia (huh?)

Posted by on November 21, 2011 in Education | 0 comments

On Saturday, we here at the Distant Suns World Headquarters, participated in a weekend conference on startups and entrepreneurs held in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

Yes, that Mongolia. In a two-way video link thanks to Skype, I covered what it takes to be an entrepreneur in Silicon Valley, and tips on getting successful apps out into the Market.

The group was surprisingly savvy, asking me about the Silicon Prairie, how to handle the financial hit to going full-time on app development and platforms other than iOS to develop for.

Several Mongolian app authors were in the audience and I hope to hear from them soon and perhaps to be a mentor to the group.
