pg: thank you

what makes it overdesigned?

thanks for the link

I'm a BBA undergrad that started a limited liability corporation. We were given the extraordinary opportunity to present our budget to the Executive Committee of University's Board of Trustees. But trying to find a quarter of a million dollars from my own alma matter isn't easy.

I'm not sure how this is relevant to my parent comment.

Also, some unsolicited feedback:

* The product page keeps jumping between campusbubble.com and universitycollaboration.com

* The "Try Demo" asks the user to click on the contact us link that takes you to the contact page. The "Beta Test" page also links to the contact page. Essentially there is no way of "trying out" what the product does for something that has been in development since 2011.

* The left column on the "Try Demo" page has two deadlinks instead of previews.

* And as a (recent) former student, I am not sure the value the product provides to students over much simpler solutions (such as: facebook groups, r/mycollege, group texting apps for study groups, pizzza.com, etc). Good luck regardless.

Israeli firms and startups don't have special trouble raising capital.

Buffet made his first investment outside the US by buying Iscar which is based in the far north of Israel where rockets from Hezbollah are aimed. Sequia Capital makes a ton of investments in Israel. The nation's economy is stable and rapidly growing. Politically controversial decisions are made precisely to preserve that stability.

edit: Israel isn't home to many global consumer brands. Even Dead Sea Works is mostly B2B.

cool concept. Next step is drag and drop.
