The connection is "We are creating an online marketplace for short term work in Germany" and I wanted to congratulate them on getting 3 mil Eur revenue in 2016. To be honest I wanted to hear from them how raising funding has been and made an assumption (which they haven't responded to.) I can't overemphasize what huge genuine revenue numbers those are, for a startup, on the model he has described. If they're not getting investors tripping over themselves to invest at a $10M valuation (and they're almost certainly not) then it really frustrates me. Everything they described was great! I hope this makes the reason for my comment a bit clearer.

I would also love to hear from paskster (the OP I replied to) with what their experience has been like building this kind of game-changing startup, specifically as regards venture capital funding.
