At the May 9th VVM meeting, 55 people came to mentor budding companies and learn what the startups had done since last month. Scott Foster conducted a talk on the recent crowdfunding amendment to the JOBS Act, discussing the implications for startups and taking questions. Dede Wilson of Bakepedia brought delicious treats and presented her business, an online encyclopedia for bakers, and the progress she has made on it since last month. Jessica Greene, founder of Seek Your Course, is planning a road trip across America to promote her site, as well as encourage creativity in adults. VVM Startup Cloud2Market and VVM alum Joya Bride made it into the 2nd round of MassChallenge.
This month, special breakout sessions were held for new VVM mentors and potential new companies entering the program. There were 4-6 teams interested in applying in the future. Afterwards, a subset of the group went down to Champions to relax and continue talking.
