  • Flip right through this one
  • Cooking is just the start; we intend to expand to sharing other activities
  • Everyone has a small equity share.
  • Creative, real life, conversational, community. Video chat app where people who love to cook, pros and amateurs alike, can cook together in real time.
  • Start up in similar space: Justin.tv, Bakespace.com… recipe sharing & static updates, not video conversation. Some sites, Like All Recipes, do have a paid or supporting member version with less ads and some premium benefits.
  • Founders not drawing salary .. Would not draw any pay during the 90-120 day period. Money go to web hosting, features build, and optimzing the application for /round 2. Stage 3: angel investment, build iOS application, add different activities
