Chase Adam, Founder, Watsi
Informational vs. Motivational

This is one advantage of being small nonprofit, take risk, do what you want
Decided to be transparent
100% donation
Minima fundraising
No founders or cofounders titles
Hackernews post starts media wave
What they got out of YC: focus, focus on one metric, a network, stamp of approval
Fund raise for three months
Watsi is selling a vision
Find something you work on that you care about more than yourself.
