Lost In Translation

Posted on April 21, 2010. Filed under: JumpPost, startups, venture capital | Tags: , , |

JumpPost is getting some nice love from the press.  Here’s a sample of our coverage.

WPIX Eveneing News: http://jumppo.st/c3CZbQ (VIDEO)

New York Times: http://jumppo.st/cJ7lSS

NY Post: http://jumppo.st/bNbCp3

Gothamist: http://jumppo.st/aktNeD

Curbed: http://jumppo.st/aKa9AU

Generally speaking, I think the press is doing a great job of communicating our value proposition and story.  We are supremely grateful for the attention and kind words.

One point of clarification: The NY Post said we are now raising $1 Million.  That’s not true.  I told Jennifer (who is awesome) that when we are ready to raise, we will likely shoot for north of $1 Million. We aren’t quite there yet.  The time element of our fundraising goals was lost in translation.  I only clarify because whenever I read in the press that a company is raising money, I interpret that to mean “the company has been in the market and is having a tough time raising money” (Foursquare type rounds excluded)

Not the case with JumpPost.  We have not pitched a single investor for outside capital in our 7 months of existence.  When we do, I probably won’t advertise it in the newspaper 🙂
