+Robert Scoble in da Blackbox House! check it out!
 
Check out this Silicon Valley pressure cooker: A mansion full of entrepreneurs

It's called the Blackbox Mansion. What is it? A dozen entrepreneurs come to Silicon Valley from all over the world and they stay in a mansion in Atherton to get their companies to the next levels.

http://blackbox.vc/

The day I was there Tim Draper, famous VC, dropped by, and here we drop in on an evening party they were holding to raise money for Hacker Dojo.

On this video you'll meet most of the companies, get a sense of what it's like to be in the mansion.

Some of these companies are really stunning. It's a smart concept that's getting lots of attention as a model for helping new entrepreneurs really get their companies ready to take to investors.

Please vote for Yoomoot (it takes less than 1 minute!). Please ask your friends to vote as well. Many other startups got a lot of money (£1mln investment) and £10,000 won't make much difference to them. £10,000 make a huge difference to us! Vote please: http://www.smarta.com/smarta100/2011-winners/yoomoot
