1am. The lights went out at SUPHQ….not ideal….Am I tired? yeah but I don’t feel like I am working. I feel more like when I stayed up late as a kid to play an addictive strategy game like Civilisation…time is flying…I don’t wanna go to bed…wanna complete a few more levels 🙂

Late night at SupHQ

Late night at SupHQ

Tomorrow we are going to Google and then 500 Startups. We will pitch our product to them. Excited? ehmmm does the bear shit in the woods?

We are close to finishing the MVP. It needs to be ready by the end of the weekend. Not just ready but tested for bugs and stability. We are planning for 500 users to join in the second half of Feb with the help of a partnership with Geek Fantasy Camp, a hackathon in Chile. Applicants to GFC will be asked provide a Fundacity profile page URL with their application. Marcelo, our investor is the man behind this plan. It is a great kickstart. I am super excited to hear from and directly contacting our first users. Early feedback  is the most important thing in developing a product. It keeps you from developing a product no one wants. Lean Startup Methodology rocks!
