Thanks! From what I’ve heard via backchannels in the past few days, the VCs wanted Munchery to close down last October — that’s three to four additional months of salary that James Beriker continued to draw knowing his company wasn’t going to be able to pay its vendors for goods already delivered. He then had the nerve to tell me on the phone that the shut down was “completely unanticipated.”
Oh man, this is terrible, and unfortunately there are so many people in situations similar to yours. We’ve received many, many emails. If you’d like to message me privately I can put you in touch with a journalist working on this topic so that you can at least get the story out there. Good luck!
Wow — when was this? Who did you reach out to at Salesforce to try to collect? Benioff has a reputation as one of the more community-friendly tech CEOs so I bet you can still get paid for this if you find the right person to talk to. I’m sure you have better things to do than chase down money, but I’m wondering if you may still be able to get paid…
