Bright teams do amazing things

Bright Pixel tussled and did it again!

There are moments to be proud of what we are able to accomplish…

This year I did not manage to help a lot in the team effort to prepare another edition of Pixels Camp! One week has passed and I am still amazed of how managed to pull it off…

We had our biggest and best Pixels Camp ever and still managed to help host the first SONAE IM Investors Day on the first day and a great INSERT COIN LIVE on the second day of the main event, that closed with a bang with the traditional but always exciting hackaton pitching session!

I think it’s all about team effort and specially a true joy and commitment of all involved in making and sharing with the tech community the greatest event possible in three 24/7 packed days of fun and hard work.

Only with really great bright and passionate people can we make this type of event happen with so little resources and time to do so!

It’s the anti-fyre event! 😉

Where genuine breadth, content and work surpasses any type of hype and social media frenzy to make some noise…

This is also only possible because ALL the sponsors and partners are truly involved in the process of making the event a great experience for who comes by…

Now, we are thinking about guaranteeing that Pixels Camp and all the relevant side events that we promoted, namely Insert Coin, have a way of maintaining the momentum going during the whole year, until it’s time for another great edition of Pixels Camp! (if you want to contribute in any way of fashion, send us ideas!)

Bright & Proud!

 

 

 

Impressive Lyft!

It’s perhaps a good day to say that there are some things in the world that sometimes just Lyft off and defy gravity, for no good nor sound reason at all!

Lyft, the winner in the ridehailing race to the public markets, has debuted on the NASDAQ in the year’s biggest listing so far.  The company has priced its shares at $72 apiece, valuing its IPO at roughly $20.6 billion—a significant jump from the $15.1 billion valuation it reached in its latest funding round last year.

The company’s latest S-1 filing notes that Lyft’s co-founders, Logan Green and John Zimmer, will hold all of the company’s class B shares, which carry 20x the regular voting power. With nearly 49% of Lyft’s voting shares between the two, Green and Zimmer could reportedly hold respective stakes in the company worth $569 million and $393 million with a top-end pricing.

Beta Future

A great post from an inspiring builder studio that I had the privilege to visit some years back. before co-founding Bright Pixel.

John Borthwick, betaworks founder and CEO, just shared recent a post that I am still processing… I’ve read and re-read it a couple of times now… It’s truly worthwhile…
