Out of the blue, an "angel" investor out of London showed interest in me and my ideas. He liked both the passion-projects I had on deck but essentially forced me to choose which one I wanted to run with.
UpStar is unofficially born!
The investor turned out to be a wannabee-shark in angel's clothing. Good learning experience though.
I invested enough time mapping out the whole idea, technologies, pitch etc, I decided to green-light it and pursue full-time.
Currently self-funding until bootstrapping can take over.
At this alone for now.
This year's YC Startup School should prove useful!
