I'm Stefan, founder and CEO of Datameer, a data analytics startup in Sillicon Valley.
Building a start-up is like an ultra triathlon. Whenever you feel you've had the hardest swim of your life, you have to bike 112 miles. Whenever you feel you've had the hardest bike ride, you have to run a marathon after that. And in-between, you have to deal with the ups and downs of life.
But all of this is nothing compared to what our families, friends and colleagues go through when battling cancer. They never give up and its their passion for life that inspires me. I'm sick of feeling helpless so on September 22nd I will stand up to cancer. My first goal is to raise money for Stand Up To Cancer, make it through an intense training program, and get to the starting line. Beyond that, it would be wonderful but only a little likely to make it through one of the hardest Ironman races out there within 17 hours.
Please help me Stand Up to Cancer by donating now and / or join the race support team.
