Introducing the Next Mark Zuckerberg | BostInno
Ottway Ducard stashed this in VC
Immediately after, Chae says he had received at least 40 inquiries from investors and highly regarded angel investors. Within their first few meetings, PostRocket had raised their initial $150,000. One week later, they hit $300,000, and the week after that, $500,000. Gus Weber — the first person Chae says he met in the Boston tech community — even offered the team free office space at Dogpatch Labs in Palo Alto, and soon Polaris Ventures was tossing in a quarter million dollars. When all was said and done, PostRocket ended with $610,000 in seed funding, and they’ve continued to hustle ever since.
Chae did admit he “wanted to build a business that sells,” which is why he chose to work with the Facebook platform. “All the money is being spent on Facebook,” Chae says. And if PostRocket can successfully analyze a business’s Facebook page and provide recommendations on when and what to post, they’ll pay money for it. As Chae puts it, “We’re able to automatically provide them with a digital consultant.”
WTF is with comparing this guy to Zuckerberg?
There's nothing about Chae or his company that is anything like Zuckerberg,
