VentureApp Chat: MassChallenge’s free cash, SNAP’s crushing expectations & AMZN’s typo heard round the world

Well done SNAP, your big day in the market has just set you up for a brutal 12 months, where every day you try to live up to the crushing expectations. But you’re all rich, so it’s all good.

Chat of the Day
As a startup, every resource matters – cash, office space, mentors, time, etc. So when an offer comes around to give you free resources, especially cash, you take it.

MassChallenge has carved out a unique niche with a global reach. If you’re a startup, MC is a no brainer – they dish out non-dilutive capital – the best kind of capital. And if you’re a larger organization looking to network with startups, MC spits out 120 or so every year and grants you immediate access.

Lucky for you, MC Boston is about to kick off and our office hours today are all about getting you up to speed. Join us at 11am.

Also, quick thanks to everyone who reached out and connected their networks onto VA yesterday. For those that didn’t, we compiled a quick blog post to answer some of the most common q’s.

One more thing. AMZN needs to be held accountable for bringing the internet to a crawl earlier this week. And the internet needs more checks and balances. How can a single typo (which is what happened) cause a massive outage like that? Hundreds of millions of dollars were lost when these sites went down – 54 of the top 100 online retailers were crushed but not AMZN of course. Anyways…
