Well, We Failed.
We set out with ambitious plans but after a year of development, we’ve run out of cash and are shutting down Wattage.
What are you talking about? This wasn’t a matter of “oops, we screwed up”. We lost actual money, from friends & family. We put our own money into it. We lived off tiny salaries. We spent a year trying to do something and we failed. We fucked it up and it sucks. But I figured others might learn something from our mistakes. What part of this sounds like a celebration to you?
We’re working through what we’re going to do… but yes, that’s an option
No, we didn’t really get any feedback about the length, tho who knows what they thought but didn’t say.
We had a number of versions of the deck, but this was simply a version with all of the slides. I didn’t often send a deck quite this lengthy.
Indeed, the business plan did evolve, but not dramatically so… I changed things as we gained more perspective on our costs and how we’d operationalize things, but that’s it.
