Userful: Penguin Friends

Hi everyone,

My pitch was for Userful Company, for a new proposal called Pengiun Friends. I apologize for it’s being so late, I was talking with the president of the company, Tim Griffin, about the proposal and Userful.


No one has to look at my proposal (for reviewing), but if you’d like to take a look and let me know what you think, it’s available here:

Bravo to ETEC522’s EVA Swarm

Or is it a hive?

As we begin to wind down, I just wanted to express my thanks to everyone for a very stimulating and worthwhile learning adventure.

I’d hoped to have your A3’s marked by now, but that’s an impressive and daunting set of work – I’ll need another few days.

As you venture forward please remember that the best opportunity to make any start-up work is to bounce it off lots of smart people first, so keep your connections with the swarm (and your humble instructors) active.  You all qualify as “sophisticated” investors now….

Warm regards,
