It's no secret that we occasionally drink Makers Mark at our office -- we even have a monthly meeting of entrepreneurs called the "whiskey meeting". I've often thought that we are a walking advertisement for Maker's Mark and that I give them way too much word of mouth publicity for free. At the Whiskey meetings, the TechStars teams and I even joked that we should make a user generated commercial in the hopes of getting some sponsorship from Maker's Mark. Well that dream might become reality! Kayla Roark, my partner in crime at TechStars, just got a call from the diplomat for Maker's Mark in Seattle. She reached out to them proposing some fun ideas for collaboration and marketing -- and they're open to talking. I can already see the speak "easy" downstairs stocked with quality bourbons and whiskeys for all the tech entrepreneurs in Seattle. Alright maybe I'm getting ahead of myself....but you never know... Startups + whiskey...this could lead to some interesting things....stay tuned!
