TextingForward in San Fran

Just wanted to post some pics from our whirlwind of a week when we were in San Fran! We had a very productive week and lots of great contacts were made here in Silcone Valley! Above is a pic of me and Jerson at the Clicaktell offices in Redwood City - we are about to kick off a major partnership with them which is an exciting move for TextingForward!
The conference we did together was just the first step-- and it was a good test to see how both companies worked and to identify what we need to work on. Definitely a lot of work to do ahead of us.
We got to see Rog and Shay briefly- we went to an awesome Thai restaurant close to the Moscone Center where we were living for the last two days! It was so great to see them and enjoy some time with the outside world since every night, Jerson and I camp out in the business center at the bottom of our hotel working until the wee hours of the am.
Finally, we met with some Venture Capitalists for the first time and it was such a nerve racking yet educational experience! We know SO much more now after those two meetings and are actually poised to get our first deal soon. Although- we know its not going to meet our needs- to know that we have a company and platform that is going somewhere and that is what these VCs are looking for feels really, really good :) Stay tuned!
