    vain, incredibly vain. when was it so that software became as boring as Hillary Clinton. I’m no tech guy but I have an idea for this app, go out and start it for me will you?

    PTPD: An app called put the phone down. and begin to create something with your hands. as this gives true pride in your work. because you have created it. Ask God to reveal himself, humbly, go out into the city and make a new friend who enjoys creating the same things you do. begin to do good works, it feels good, trust me. Pick up a trade. learn an instrument. become extremely fit and seek a wife who you can be yourself with. that is fun and foolish. travel the world. start a family. get closer to God. if not, continue wasting your life, up to 5+ hours a day on instagram, and watching Netflix

    I have a start-up called, “More Than One Mic”. It’s a new business model where we supply events like this more than one microphone. Total investment needed is about 80 bucks.

    For the Croissant guy, when he was asked about building a community via shared spaces, he shouldn’t have agreed and given an example of how his idea failed to meet that market. Instead, he should have said that he’s looking at a completely different audience. These are independent nomads going from coffee shop to coffee shop, trying to find a place to work. Unfortunately, New York is crowded and busy, so they’re wasting time trying to find an open seat and outlet. They’re not interested in connecting with other people. They just want a place to work. By using the Croissant app, they can see available spaces that can be reserved. The reservations are day to day, so they can go somewhere else if they feel like it. The only connections they’re looking for is wifi and power.

    The most stupid judges and worst pitches I’ve ever seen! People see entrepreneurship and app making as something cool; it is cool but what is your definition and more importantly why are you doing this! If it’s for money which for all of them is, then you’ll never get there. Passion comes first as they say ” do it every day as it’s money doesn’t matter to you” and in fact you will eventually make the most money out of it because you’re intention wasn’t only based on money.

    that second presentation just listed all these competitors and I’m like hmm yea I know zillow and craigslist. Everybody is on there already so why go through another website with no users.

    The girl was simply advertising craigslist more than her own company …

    All these pitches fell into the same trap: complicated for nothing.

    The coffee idea, what value have they added? How is it different from other​ big brands? Why will people buy their products? How can they remain competent?
    If they are offering fresher​ coffee than global brands that means they have better supply chain networks than global brands and lesser lead times. Fresh coffee means they are not storing the coffee for a long time at their company warehouses. Less inventory. If less inventory, what is the manufacturing capacity? Is it really the case?? If so how are they managing it?
    These are the fucking questions the judges should have asked.

    some thought for find roomates…. if you could use some info from face book, you have idea of their life style, and you could do some follow ups, after the contrast is about to end, you recommend another…. some CRM things, i guess
