I wish him continued success and positive growth.

Congratulations to @mark - probably one of the smartest guys I’ve spoken to! Fundraising is not something to praise but I think this is honestly encouraging and inspiring news for the “ecosystem” (it is to me anyway). Here’s to more growth :wine_glass:

Multiply by 10. That’s how much money he has to return to be considered a success. Plenty plenty money… Entrepreneurship is hard work … #dontpanic
