You have my respect. I mean it.
By turning down the offer from an investor with such great reputation, that’s considered a suicide for many people.
So far in my knowledge, you’re the only one that I heard out of the plethora tech/Silicon Valley/startup feeds that don’t play by the “rules” in the so-called business world. Not an easy decision.
Many would argue that such action is a suicide mission. Many would tolerate. Many would compromise. But you did it differently, and it was a great one! A very good example set in the current society. Glad to read about your inspiring story. I wish you very best in your venture.
