Old startups, even fake ones, never die … they just fade away. Woot!
Dear Mr. Burkett,
I am contacting you to request information about your company, Wifi Cat, and its progress since you presented at the past Atlanta 2009 Startup Riot. We would like to request information regarding the funding your company has raised, or whether your company has been acquired. All information provided will be kept confidential; it will only be shared in aggregate with all other presenters. Also we would like you to provide a testimonial about your experience at Startup Riot and how did the event help your company succeed?
Please let me know if you have any questions or concern. You can contact me at email@example.com – I look forward to hearing from you soon.
