Awesome Journey

Used when a startup has failed. Intend to give a positive spin on what is a gut wrenching moment.

While our startup has failed, it has been an awesome journey.

Waterloo

A mythical University in Canada where many good Engineers and Computer Scientists come from.

Sam: "Where are all these Canadians from?"
Matthew: "We hired 10 interns and 20 full-times from Waterloo. They get shit done because if we don't hire them, they'll have to work for Blackberry."

    @SingleCommaClub It's similar to what you see from immigrants to a new country like US or Canada

    It's like a parallel universe of Silicon Valley where people speak American English...

    @SingleCommaClub That's not true at all. Pretty much everyone I know from my graduating class got offers from US companies. A significant proportion of students choose to stay because the region is booming right now, and also the quality of life in Canada is pretty high.

    Have worked with a lot of engineers from Waterloo through internships and full time. Can honestly say they are very talented, but there is a bias because all the ones that make it to US companies are generally top notch.

    Fuck With Me You Know I Got It Money

    Newly made money from an entrepreneur usually after the sale of a company or a large payday of some kind, that is flaunted about amoungst one's personal network as an open invitation to query them for investment pitches or start to start new companies of some kind with their backing and financial support.

    Reemus is starting an incubator in his house and is inviting all his friends to live in it now that he has 'fuck with me you know I got it' money.

      Incubator Hopping

      Hopping from incubator to incubator living off the small amount of money they give to your company, just to say you live the startup life style. This is alot like barhopping except your at each location for 3-6 months, not a couple hours.

      Ryan has been incubator hopping with the company he started for a couple years now. The money is good enough for him to live off and he loves bringing women to startup parties that very few people have access to.
