Hubert and I didn’t make it through to the third round of the Google EYE program. This is really annoying for a few reasons:
1. We have amazing traction and growth.
2. Phoney Messenger is totally unique.
3. We can actually deliver
4. We spent at least one hundred hours on our application and our presentation.
5. They didn’t give us any feedback.
In direct response I don’t want to do any more of this stuff. No more pitching contests, no more accelerator programs. I just want to work on the product, get people using it and get more sales. Fuck everything else.
Google EYE stands for Empowering Young Entrepreneurs, but I don’t feel empowered, the program made me feel like shit.
