Hey Micah, I’m a TS Seattle 2015 alum. Great article. Wished I read this article before I had to opportunity to pitch at Techcrunch Disrupt shortly after a pivot. It was a distraction. I thought it would be but made lots of excuses that ‘despite the distraction’ it’d be worth it.
Great post. I was happy to see the startup community make noise to have the NDP add a little more clarity to this issue. I’m sure you saw the letter to Tobi and Ryan: https://www.dropbox.com/s/86ptxs608he78wn/2015–09–24%20letter%20-%20mulcair-tech%20sector%20startups-en%201.pdf?dl=0
