Everything starts somewhere. I think the old adage is the 2 people in a garage at the beginning working on a tech company.
In Asia there is a lack of garages for the most part but the rest of the issues and desires remain the same.
Some people are in a coffee shop, co-working space or their apartment or maybe their parent’s apartment.
Have computer will build startup seems to be the mantra.
Once that is settled you need some compute power, some tech/strategy help and if everything goes okay – you will need some capital.
Enter Project Alpha :: http://alpha.seedplus.com
Compute, help and capital all in on spot.
First off you can join the city events we will have – there will be four cities covered. Sorry if we are not coming to your city.

We found that six weeks before his resignation this former employee, Anthony Levandowski, downloaded over 14,000 highly confidential and proprietary design files for Waymo’s various hardware systems, including designs of Waymo’s LiDAR and circuit board. To gain access to Waymo’s design server, Mr. Levandowski searched for and installed specialized software onto his company-issued laptop. Once inside, he downloaded 9.7 GB of Waymo’s highly confidential files and trade secrets, including blueprints, design files and testing documentation. Then he connected an external drive to the laptop. Mr. Levandowski then wiped and reformatted the laptop in an attempt to erase forensic fingerprints.
Wow. Not even a professional hijacking. Just straight up stealing and trying to cover it up.
Guessing Alphabet has plenty of cash and an axe to grind. Seems to me it’s time for the CEO to step down and let an adult run the company before it is too late.
