Last night, I was able to finally meet up with Dinesh, one of my friends from undergrad, to catch up and have dinner. Because he lives in Culver City, we decided to try a Japanese restaurant, Minori Sushi on Pico and Robertson, near his house. Typically, I head across the city to Little Tokyo for good sashimi, cutlets, and ramen, but this little spot was amazing! The service was friendly and attentive, and the prices were the best I’ve seen in years. For a ‘Bento Box Dinner’, I had 9 pieces of sashimi, grilled salmon, a California role, rice, salad, and a miso soup for only $17!! This is still pretty pricey for dinner, but for sushi, this is incredible.
Because Dinesh founded his own company, Stasis Labs, while we were still in school, we spent a lot of time talking about the current start-up landscape, strategy, and available resources at USC. Talking things through with him helped a lot with my future plans with FlexSpecs. Although Stephanie and I have attended many workshops about intellectual property, equity split, and business model planning, we still had a lot of specific questions about our own project. Hanging out with Dinesh definitely clarified some of my thoughts and ideas. I’m so glad to know a friend who has gone through these competitions before!
