Welcome to A Berg's Eye View! My name is Erik Berg and this is my personal blog. I am very excited to get started on this project and it is my sincere hope that you enjoy your time here.
A little bit about myself. I am from Denver, Colorado and now live with my beautiful wife in Bethesda, Maryland. We met at the College of William & Mary where I majored in Finance and Public Policy and concentrated in Entrepreneurship. I love to read fantasy novels, play tabletop games, and watch my favorite soccer team, Arsenal F.C., play (and despite their best efforts, occasionally win).
I have three goals for this blog:
To create thoughtful and compelling content centered around the world of technology, startups, and entrepreneurship. I am absolutely fascinated by "startupland" and will be writing about the companies and market trends that I find intriguing and innovative. I have no background in this world but hope to someday make a career there and I am learning as much as I can about it in the meantime.
To hone my personal writing. I believe that anytime you take your thoughts and transform them into a reasoned and developed argument or thesis you create an opportunity for growth. Through this medium, I hope to cultivate my personal writing style and strengthen my ability to explain concepts in a direct and easy to understand manner.
To entertain my readers and have fun with every post!
If at any time I am not moving towards these goals, we will be closing up shop. Until then, you can expect regular posts about the latest startups, technologies, and trends.
