This is Monroe Hall. It's easy to find.

Interested in "The Startup Life?"

You're Invited Don't want a "real job?" Interested in entrepreneurship and doing your own thing? Want to learn what it takes to start a successful startup? Come this Monday to hear the story of two UVa grads who pulled it off, founding reddit.com.

Background

Steve graduated from the UVa Engineering school in 2005, Alexis graduated from the Comm School in the same year. After completing the YC program, and raising less than $100,000 in VC capital, Reddit was recently acquired by Conde Nast (publishers of Wired Magazine) for an "undisclosed sum."

Today, Reddit receives 160,000 unique visits daily, and is ranked one of the 250 most frequently visited US websites (according to alexa). Press about the site is here.

Getting There

If you're not local, your best chance is to drive. Click here for the Google maps link, which you can use to get directions. You can also click here for the map of UVa central grounds. Monroe Hall is building #26.

Since the talk will be held at 5PM, a lot of parking will open up that wouldn't normally be available. Here are some of the best places to park:

  • In the parking garage below the UVa Bookstore. This costs ~$1 / hr, but is easy to find. Building #37 on this map
  • On Newcomb road, by Alderman Library. Alderman is #1 on this map
    • This is free, and I think it opens up around 5PM or 5:30PM
  • On McCormic road, by Alderman. Same as above.
  • On Unversity Ave, by Nameless field (#28 on this map)

Other transportation options include the free Trolly, Blue Route, and Orange Route. For any of these routes, you'll want to get off on the stop directly in front of Monroe Hall / the Amphitheater / The Chapel.
