Hi Sam, I am applying to the winter 2016 batch and I would like to ask you this:

- what is the exact purpose of the company description in the application, is it a mission statement?

- do you have examples of "something surprising or amusing that one of you has discovered"

- is it important for the evaluation process if another company has already succeeded in another market but with a similar approach as the one we propose? Should we talk about it in the application?

Thank you for your help
