A friend of mine - who's CEO of a pretty awesome cycling/3D-printing company - literally sprinted down the road to try and catch Chris Hoy the cyclist, to try and grab him as an Angel Investor 🏃🏻‍♂️

@cn__katie Unfortunately that one wasn't - but he did raise the money he needed a few weeks later, and he's still going strong! Perseverance works 😉😆

Building cool stuff on the internet
I once pitched 2 VCs without knowing I was pitching. I got on a call with them thinking they are interested in working on the project together or brainstorming. Neither did they clarify why they were on the call until the end when the deed was done.

@cn__katie No, the call ended up with them suggesting that I need a distribution strategy to acquire millions of users to be successful, but I had the strategy to only acquire first 100 users. This was before the product was built and was just an idea.
