If there are any other $5k creds you have, you can stack them up to $100k. If you use Mercury, they offer $5k in perks, check out F6S as well & have you applied for AWS Activate directly? I got $1k directly from Activate and another $5k from Mercury.
See? For our app, we just shared the perspective of the user & what they could do on it, no call to action or anything because our call to action was built in our app. If they want it, they know how to find it.
In the restaurant industry, a lot of places have their branding on their plates, and it's not by accident - when someone posts a picture of their food, guess who gets free advertising?

What made you start a startup?
I grew up watching self help/motivational videos. I eventually became immune to them.
My guess would be you've had a similar experience, how else would you know this?
I respectfully disagree that you will always end up at square one. I didn't and my guess is that you didn't either.
What I speak about is inspiration mixed with action. Not just inspiration.
That's a bold statement implying that I'm not myself - and not an okay one either.
Let's end this here, have a good day.
