Hi Dote Shoppers—
Because we’re both doing our summer internship with Dote remotely (Tasha from LA and Gretchen from New York), this past weekend we flew into San Francisco for a special week at Dote HQ!

We visited Lightspeed Venture Partners, the VC firm that invested $5 million in Dote on Planet of the Apps. We met with Nikki Quinn and learned all about what investors look at when evaluating an early stage product and team.
We also hung out with Josh Constine, Editor-at-Large of Techcrunch and learned all about what it’s like to have front row access to the latest developments in Silicon Valley. We heard about he created his own masters in cyber-sociology and were inspired to think about integrating our own abilities in YouTube content creation into our coursework when we go back to school in the Fall.

We love you! Stay just the way you are.
