I just wanted to give you all a quick update on where we stand with Nerdies. In the next couple days we will be launching our crowd funding campaign through IndieGoGo and the anticipation is killing me. The amazingly talented people at BlkBoxLabs are putting the final touches on our pitch video and completing the redesign of our logo. Once that is finished up we will launch on IndieGoGo and we are off to the races for the next 45 days.
The more I tell people and discuss what we want to do at Nerdies the more I am convinced this is going to be an amazing adventure. I am so excited to get this off and running and start working with all our nerds out there who want to expand their interests and talents. The truth is that we are all nerds in something. If you can talk to me about something to a point that I get bored then you are probably a nerd in that area. Whether I am talking to a local musician, programmer, artist or gamer I love to see their eyes light up when they talk about what they love. The thought of having a business where I get to see that everyday really excites me.
I often think about what it will be like to see a young kid come into Nerdies over the years and see him or her really transform. They come in for a robotics class at first but realize they really enjoy programming. Then over the years they expand their talents and before you know it we might have the next Steve Jobs or Bill Gates. All the great innovators had a place or people in their childhood that encouraged and help them become incredible at what they do. That is my hope for Nerdies and I can’t wait for the future.
