Probably Failed CBX, But Just Raised $3MM For Startup

Postby spartjdawg » Wed Sep 04, 2013 2:26 pm

I am the co-founder of a Y Combinator backed startup (SendHub) and while studying for the bar exam, I was in the process of raising a small Series A for the company of $3MM: http://techcrunch.com/2013/09/04/sendhub-secures-3-million-series-a-to-be-the-mobile-alternative-to-business-phone-systems/

As you can imagine, as the co-founder of a company, I could not take leave from the company. Going through fundraising made it all that much more difficult to study. As a result, very possible I failed the bar exam. Even though the company just raised some money, failing would still suck majorly.

If you don't know, then you should probably ask somebody. <-----ZINNNGGGGG

Just kidding, part selfless plug, part frustration with waiting for bar results, part frustration with not being able to study for the bar.

No you may not. Maybe if we raise lots more money, though.

Good luck, maybe you'll pass the bar and get rich off the company. If you get rich off the company and don't pass the bar, you'll probably not give two shits and still be ballin'.

Not much humility in this humble brag.
