Jason CalacanisAll it takes is one great leader in the community to make things happen. Kirsten is very selfless about it. I met her, just a wonderful, delightful person who came to London to meet with us, hard working and just does it for the love of the startups and for the love of the community. This is why we do it, so she is sort of one of our people.
