I've been reaching out to many of the people who supported Airbnb in our earliest days to say thanks. While there are a number of people who believed in us, without Ron Conway, Airbnb wouldn't be what it is today.
@bchesky Why limit it to YC? If it is truly about economic empowerment, maybe loose that qualification. Thanks for doing this regardless, it will leave the world better 🙏
@bchesky That is beautiful... and I recall that speech at the Crunchies :)
@bchesky Thanks for sharing Brian. Some people have greatness thrust on them — and come out shining. All the best!!
@bchesky Brian - thanks for sharing. Truly inspiring - I can think of no higher honor as an investor. @RonConway has long set the bar for humility, partnership, and impact. If you want to upsize the award, count me in. All of us who live / benefit from SV owe a debt to Ron.
