Testify Software Solutions
Testify is an amazing ed-tech company I was fortunate enough to connect with early in 2016. The company, founded by juniors in high school, was about to launch when I considered becoming their first investor. We came tantalizingly close to making it happen when I realized these 16 year olds didn't need money but instead needed a mentor, they needed time to figure it out, they needed to realize money at that time was going to do them no good. They realized all this and I have stayed in touch with their leader, Femi Adebogun, ever sense. I plan to be there for them for a long time. These men are going places and I am lucky enough to help here and there. In the near future, expect to see them in a major spotlight.
Chuck Pettid has been asked to join Founders Space as an advisor/judge panelist for their upcoming May 2016 demo day. What a great honor. Don't be fooled; Founders Space does not take part in the Lotto Strategy and prides themselves on a well rounded group of mentors and advisors similar to Chuck's approach. He can't wait to attend!
