They are now cash stable! - contracting for bright futures, enough members. slight bleed in last two months but doing well. Have about 27 stable members, 4 or 5 occasional
There are even new members not everyone knows!
They bought business that had been housing them - super exciting!
Educational programs going super well. Backyard Brains growing super fast, as is Bright Futures. Doing projects with their school district, science museum, etc.
Marketing is a sticking point. met with a bunch of people from business school, didn't even know about it. Don't know how to reach out to students. Putting out fires, more events on campus. Participating in TEDX at U of M. Special Startup Weekend with AHA. M-Powered, Kauffman.
Lots and lots of classes. We have one class 4 out of 7 nights of the week.
Debate on SF recently. Slow to get ahold of James. Thinking of founding our 501c3, or going through i3. Wonderful idea, but not being actualized
