Just a quick blog tonight again - would like to get some sleep :). Earlier today Dan and I pitched Tasteplug to the Innovation Fund at Penn. It was a 10 minutes powerpoint with a 10 minute Q&A and we rocked it. We presented pretty well and had really solid questions to answers. We felt really good about it after we left, but we just heard from a little birdie that we have $1000 now! We can finally scale and build out our SMS infrastructure... Things are going good...now to continue to brainstorm for our Y Combinator Interview.
Alright so I believe I have finished my final assignment/exam just now before Spring Break (woohoo!). I'm pretty excited. Not because I'm going to Spain or Brazil or somewhere awesome for break to have lots of college-y fun, but because it's time to become a better entrepreneur! I'm going to be spending my time doing a few things:
- Learning Ruby on Rails (a side project a friend presented me requires rails, and also its a great language that many companies are now using to get scale, fast).
- Throwing together Bottleable (basically a "message in the bottle" thing for the internet)
- Prototyping a new direction for Tasteplug.
- Spending lots of time loving my beautiful girlfriend (guys with girlfriends, never skimp on this)
