Our Ultimate Commencement Speech

Graduation: there are so many things about that big event that you should be excited for, like celebrating with all of your friends, or basking in the relief of being done with the gargantuan task you’ve undertaken for the past however-many years. But there’s one part of graduation day that, admittedly, can get a bit overrated: the commencement speech. FYI: we’re huge fans of storytelling, and we’d never write off...

When people think of "startups," many minds travel straight to Silicon Valley—either the city itself, or the equally amazing TV show. But as access to tech education and capital spreads, the barrier to entry for startups across the country has been lowered, and as a result, there's been explosive growth in areas that aren't San Francisco, CA.

13 Truly Spooky Stories (for Grown-ups!)

Once you become an adult, most of the traditionally “scary” Halloween figures lose a lot of their clout: “monster” is a word we casually throw around to describe coworkers who don’t take out the trash when it’s full, ghosts are just jerks who never text you back (even after what you thought was a really nice date!), and “boo” is an adorable thing that Aziz Ansari says.
