We are looking for funding.


We don’t do pay to pitch conferences. I already know about a third of
your investors anyways and after 15 years in silicon valley I’m sure I
can network to the rest pretty easily.

If you want to give us a slot because we do a great pitch and your
conference is better with great pitches we’ll check our schedules and
see if we can be there.
