|Hey everyone! We spent the major part of the year preparing an idea we had for the YC application. At last minute, we decided not to go through with YC.|
I mean, we've had our fair shares of failed startups and this was one of those make it or break it scenarios. We took everything we've ever learned and strived to make an app that we were proud of. We spent so much effort into making this app that we couldn't bear stopping short and applying to Y Combinator. (Mind you, there's nothing wrong with YC.) We didn't want to apply to Y Combinator at the last minute because if we had really gone that far and really poured our souls into this time, we might as well go all the way and instead ask for funding from Kickstarter. This the app that we've always dreamed of making and we're finally getting close. We've spent inch by bloody, paintstaking inch working on it and it seriously feels good to finally let if off our chestslana del rey by showing off what we learned during our time as entrepreneurs. Thank you for your time!
