And a great one at that.

The only thing I dislike about TheFunded, is that they hadn't launched  
2 years sooner.

It was completely fucking sobering when they started, and I signed up  
to start sharing pros/cons of meetings with people.

Across the board everyone had the same experiences as me:

	- meeting with specific investors that "didnt go so well", but you  
respected them because it was a bad fit, or they tore major holes in  
your plan
	- meeting with specific investors that demanded such insane terms,  
that it wasn't worth taking any money
	- meeting with specific investors that showered you with praise and  
excitement... only to suddenly change their mind... then develop,  
incubate and launch their own direct competitors/clones 1 year later.

It's the best resource out there.
