UK startups suss out Silicon Valley

Web Mission: UK startups come to Silicon Valley from JD Lasica on Vimeo.

JD LasicaOli Barrett, co-founder of Web Mission, talks about the group of 20 small startups from the United Kingdom that recently visited Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area, and what the participants took away from the trip.

The 7-minute interview was conducted on the top floor of Moscone West during the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco.

I’m looking forward to reconnecting with Oli when the Traveling Geeks visit London on July 4-11.

In the video, I really need to work on my white balance, since the HV-20 camcorder does a mediocre job at this, and apologies for the way the interview abruptly ends. Meantime, the battery on Oli’s Flip camcorder died when he was interviewing me. But Oli had lots of interesting things to say about the group’s takeaways from visits to the tech industry and VCs.
