My love letter (and goodbye?) to Austin

You have what good founders do to bootstrap, network, and hustle as hell. I have a lot of admiration for the pursuit and persistence

Growth is the only color VCs see through rose-tinted glasses; without growth then everything else gets magnified and start to draw attention, consciously or not — be it the vertical, the TAM, the valuation or the color of your skin.

I have faith that you will find a path to success; it may not even be with Localeur. But I have confidence that any one who has gone through the rigors you have described will survive to stumble into an opportunity that has yet to reveal itself. You don’t fail until you stop, so keep surviving!

Austin or Otherwise,
