    Yup just went to ssense and sorted pants by highest to lowest in price to try to figure out what pants made from doll hair look like. Went from 795 -> 650+ dollar pants looking at thumb nails and name to see if one seemed doll hair-ish.

    Then did a google site:ssense.com doll hair for good measure. Then I read your post again and actually got it. *getting it fail :(*

    I personally think that you have to be stupid and/or desperate to make a pitch on Shark Tank. It seems like a great way to not get funded and also get humiliated on nationally syndicated television. Also, it seems like a terribly unfair program. Nearly every good idea has a ton of holes, and the trick is figuring out if the core concept is sound, and whether the people have what it takes to make a go of it.

    Having gone through the whole process of seeking capital multiple times and still regularly do, I would say you have to have your shit locked down before even thinking about going to investors, these people get maybe 50 cases a week, so yours NEED to stand out.



    There are firms, who deal in raising capital and they only get paid, if they are successful, so you are sort guaranteed succes, if they go in, but most of them want somewhere in the 300k range.

    Is there something about English, not being one's first language, that leads to excessive use of commas? It seems most common, among Europeans.

    I've always wondered, why that is.

    Until this last season, the producer was given 5% equity or 2% royalty on operating profits just simply for being on the show. I imagine for some of companies, the exposure might have been worth that price, but it also screws over a lot as well. But that exposure could lead to better sales and/or different investors who may be willing to cut a check.

    Heheh. It's a pair of Kolor pants, just tried to buy both sizes and for some reason it declined. It's a sign to not buy at ssense's stupid markups

    Yes. There is. I discovered so when I started working in the US. We Europeans use long sentences. These sentences are structured with commas. Americans don't. They use short sentences. Few commas.

    I am 99.999999% sure that I would not think that it's worth it. There is a lot of potential and unknown downside, and the upside seems highly limited. I mean, I suppose that if they were regularly backing in the $5-$10M range for 5% equity, yeah, sure, I'd give it a shot, but given (certain) grief and offered $500K for 75% of the company seems like it's not worth the risk. That is angel investment money. Not even a half decent first round of funding. I think that going to San Francisco and going hat in hand to Y-Combinator, which has a good track record of successfully mentoring companies to maturity, would seem like a much better step.

    Strunk and White advocated for concise sentences devoid of redundancies. And thus, American English came to be.

    I've also learned that some languages include spaces before punctuation , which always looks weird to me .

    also

    You got Strunked!
