Bootup Labs Fiasco

Harrowing tale that is unraveling as a result of Bootup Labs in Vancouver cutting 4 of the 7 companies that they initially said they would finance.

I feel for the participants that were cut from the program and I feel for the management of Bootup Labs.  It is never easy running a company that is underfunded with cash flow dependent on successful past participants exit strategy or from investors.

The whole situation makes me feel a little sick on the inside.
