I'm at SFO with just a few minutes to get this published before flying to Tokyo, Japan with my Startup Denver co-organizer Mike Kilcoyne. We're mostly visiting Tokyo for pleasure and it will be my first experience staying in a hostel for a few nights. We'll see the Cherry Blossoms with a 3rd friend who is in town, and then I'm quickly off to Philippines on April 11.
I'm publishing my itinerary in hopes of connecting with fellow entrepreneurs, marketers, investors, and virtual assistants. I'll be in Tokyo, Manila, and Cebu area throughout the month of April. If you have contacts in those cities, please share my Facebook with them.
Anyway here's the breakdown.
Manila (April 11)
-visit acceler8.ph coworking space
-Visit Mall of Asia
-Interview a couple of potential team members for Handshakin
(we're hiring for an SEO Manager and a Sales & Call Manager)
-Feed crocodiles chickens at the Manila Zoo (pretty sure this is a thing--pumped)
-Meeting with Phil Smithson and Alex Alabiso from the Startup Space / Founder Institute Accelerator
I'll be posting daily to Instagram primarily, so make sure to follow me (@handshakin) there for updates.
PS I stopped by Santa Fe, New Mexico, Austin and San Antonio Texas, and Los Angeles before I arrived here in San Francisco to depart to Tokyo. Contact me if you're in those cities and I'm sure I'll be back this year.
Cebu City (April ~14-24)
-Zipline across buildings in downtown (thanks for the advice Cassie Gallegos)
-Go view whalesharks, and then hike to a couple different falls.
-Interviews with potential full-time team members who live close to Cebu City.
-April 19 my assistant of two years flies into town and we'll get to meet for the first time!
-April 20 is the team's first working day together, then we'll go to dinner
-April 21 I'll take the team out on an excursion, which we're still planning hehe. Check Instagram for pics!
Small chance I may extend my trip if I like it--which I'll find out soon enough! Talk to you guys from Tokyo here in about 12 hours.
