  1. Dave,
    Wanted to say THANKS for a great session here in Tampa tonite. You provided sound ideas and guidance that’ll really help me and my team as we continue to launch our new web venture.



  2. Dave,
    Thanks for traveling to Tampa for the TBTF Tuesday evening. Sorry you missed your son’s ball game.
    I was to be a member of the Founders class in Tampa. Your friend Mike has been an incredible mentor for me. He is a gem.
    I just wanted to share what I found most profound about your presentation: “I never sign an NDA. It’s not the idea, it’s the execution.” Thank you, lesson learned.
    I am revising my dinosaur business plan to an executive summary, creating my financials on a spreadsheet (instead of a chart) and make the very best, tightest ten slides of my life. Thanks.

    Mobile Pay App? also Social App too competing with Facebook

    Seed-money $ 10 Million,
    exchange equity-stake

    1. Hey Alex, thanks for the note. Give a look to Crunchbase. The average seed round is likely $500k-1.5. A $10m round will be later stage and would require $1.2-2m in revenue.

  4. Dave, thanks for the article on the pitch deck. Very informative and helpful. Hadn’t known about you before but will definitely be following now.
