Hi Chris! I believe someone reached out to you to move things forward. Thanks for reaching out!

I feel your pain, but only in the context of building a media company. My team has a highly profitable model, but we are leveraging video assets that have a huge pay out for content owners. In other words, their content just keeps paying them (we are software enabling our customers to maximize the return on video investments).
If I were you, I'd focus on real-time video aggregation and circle back with higher quality content for stories that stick.

Hello and thanks for the question! I think it would help to have more context regarding your specific goals. What kind of flyers are you creating?

@FredLight Fred...you have had an account on WellcomeMat2 all along - it just happens to be one of a bunch of accounts you have with us : ) We'll email the username to you now!

@mattlagle @MatthewBooneLagle Matt, I am going to hit you up via email if that's ok. I want to make sure we understand your goals entirely. Thanks!

For the record, Vivek Wadwa did a study, and article, about age and commercial success. Success in tech was far and away in favor of older entrepreneurs. I understand the premise of your post--which is that there is some form of prejudice against older people in the Valley right now--but wanted to support your arguments, especially because I am 7 years into a startup that I founded when I was 29 : )

@WhitSuber Thank you Whit! I believe we are getting that demo info out very soon if you haven't received it yet.

@CharlesMackenzieHill Thank you Charles! We do have very stiff competition (in regards to video technology companies) but are feeling great about the value of WellcomeMat's platform. As some wise person may have said, "focus always wins." We love real estate and this initial roll out is just the foundation of what we plan to roll out. More to come on this front....
Thank you Charles!
@MatthewBooneLagle Thanks for the questions Matthew! One of the things we were aiming for with WM2 is to remove as many layers (think of the amount of clicks necessary to reach a place of value within WellcomeMat) as possible. That theory is well enough in play where we removed the need for a dashboard dropdown tab because, through the global navigation of the site, you can quickly get to exactly the right spots in the system. The HD popup link: we are currently building out our "Individual Video Landing Pages" and those pages will display videos very largely. There will be a version of these pages for our MLS compliant video links (for people to post "unbranded" tours in their MLS without getting fines). Can you explain exactly how you are using the HD popup links? We are trying to figure out if there is an oversight in our roadmap with this particular tool OR if we can accommodate your use of these links through the individual video landing pages.
Thanks again Matthew! We truly appreciate the effort in getting your questions over to us!
@drewmeyers @DouglasCrets 100% agree Drew.

The only redeeming portion of your post is as follows:
"And once you play a critical role in a venture-backed startup, it will get easier and easier to get the next job, identify the good companies, earn promotions through merit (as opposed to corporate haggling), truly add value to those companies, and know how to maximize the equity you get."
The rest of it reminds me of a company that I played a roll in that bootstrapped its way to $125MM per year in revenue > took VC money > attracted the complete idiots you describe > flatlined. It's heart, soul and a team that loves each other that gets companies into the big leagues. The way this post reads (the tone) is that playing a short term role in many startups is a business unto itself. A bit whore-ish. Two things to end with: 1) congratulations on your success with the Bleacher Report, and 2) I agree that the opportunity for wealth does not exist with "name brand" tech companies.

Great post Sarah. Perhaps the largest divide between my partner and I (and not large enough of a divide to divide us) is my disdain for consumer tech, for exactly the reason you mention: winner takes all. In the general paid software space, companies-and sometimes many of them in one category-can reach break even, cash flow positive and gain more general leverage over their future(s). I'd take break even or profitable over famous (on the nipple) any day.
7 months, 1 week ago on Software has long been the lifeblood of the Valley. So why are VCs just now remembering this?
My favorite parts of this video are the transitions from one space into the next--from inside to the outside, from one room into another, hallway navigations etc. Very well done!
One thing to be really careful of is using Vimeo for real estate videos. They have done some really bad things in the past to users that post videos that have a commercial purpose. Things might have changed since then, with their new product roll outs etc, but I recall (like yesterday) them booting close to a hundred agents at once (no questions asked and without any heads up) from their platform.
