How did you two guys get together?

YS: Ed was managing my brother at Groupon.  He mentioned that Ed was looking for a co-founder to work on some cool projects, and the two of us should meet.  So we met in a coffeeshop and talked for 3 hours one night.

How did you come up with the idea of your guide? 

EL: We were working on a project just before this, and while we were brainstorming on what we needed to do next. I had all my bookmarks and notes out, and I realized that it’d be great if there was a guide that had all the best information organized in a way that startups could just follow and get the best results.

Where do you see yourselves in 2 years from now? 

EL: Doing startup education and helping startups succeed. Making a bunch of money while I’m at it.

YS: Running the technical arm a profitable enterprise.

What do you do in your free time? 

EL: Watch movies, play computer games, read novels, and work.

YS: I play basketball and video games when I’m by myself.  I also like to cook with my wife.
