Pro tip: It's actually really easy to maintain your post revenue status as a startup. Just ask one customer to send their payment via mail every month. You've now indefinitely checked that post revenue box for investors.

Will do. As a proud younger brother, will also add a suggestion for HYBT once it's back: You should talk to . Fun story (which involves lobsters) and a great product that helps families stay connected through photos by mail. Especially important these days

Decided to leave that part out because I didn't want to fail the challenge from the get go. BTW - When is How You Built That coming back? Been missing them at the end of new episodes, but obviously understand the circumstances too. Figured I'd ask while we're here 🤡

I tried to do this for Seth Tibbott and Tofurkey, but I honestly couldn’t make it sound boring... Man lives in a tree, cooks beans in a fridge, takes over a school, and eventually makes a turkey from tofu.

The solution to get people to wear masks is simple. Free MAGA face masks that are comfortable and approved by Trump.

Mentioned them because a big portion of their team creates content, even the non marketers. Not sure on specific tactical sharing like that though.

Never one, found the answer on the thread: 1) Simpler b/c it’s video only and 2) 100% web based

I think does video now too. Would be curious how this is different. Perhaps simpler to learn. Will ask over on PH.

I talked to a founder in Boston that's raised ~$50M a few years ago who gave me similar advice, paraphrased to: "Keep your equity and your option to sell for a reasonable but life changing exit. After that, it'll be easier to go for broke because if you fail you won't be broke."

Unfortunately, I’m 99.2% confident that answer is Generation AA. We’ve gone through all the other letters. We have to wrap back around the alphabet now, Excel style.

Interesting and thanks for the data point. During my first startup (circa 2010), it seemed rare for founders to send regular updates to angels. Now it seems more regular, which is good IMO.

I send up an update every month, but we don't have investors with board seats either. That's why I added "seed stage" to the question. In hindsight, Seed is the new Series A, so therefore there's likely a board.

Founders: How often do (or did) you update your investors during the seed stage?

Good points. FWIW I'm not opposed to letting the system play itself out. Schools have almost no checks-and-balances on providing a good ROI for students because all students loans in the US are unforgivable and government backed. Something's gotta give.

UMass will be fine b/c it's a government-backed state. It's unlikely small liberal arts colleges are going to fair well through this.
