I'm remembering a day I think it was back in early 2012. I got a text from Josh Baer saying lets meet I want to show you something. I'm supposed to go to the 16th floor of the Omni building which I'm pretty sure is completely vacant, but ok, its Josh, lets see what he's up to. I get there, and can't get to the floor, the guard at the ground floor says I need an escort. I explain, and he says ok, and scans his card to let me gain access to the 16th floor. I get there and its completely empty. So I start wandering around. Eventually I see Josh, but he's touring someone, and he'll be right with me. Eventually we connect, and he spins this tale, a tale about being the center of the Austin startup world, and the space filled with desks, and meetings every day in this big empty room, and company logos on the walls and floor. And I'm thinking man are you nuts, that's a pretty big vision. But no, he's already got investments lined up, and lots of interest. I'm thinking this is one of those deals where if I don't invest and things turn out like he says, I will be really upset. And I guess another part of me, really wanted to believe, and to throw in to support the potential for this thriving vision of an Austin startup community. Well you know what happened, it came to pass, and I think Capital Factory surpassed everyones expectations.
