The Story The Dating Ring founders enter the turbulent world of fundraising and it’s nothing like they imagine. They get an offer on demo day, but one that forces them to make a difficult decision. The following weeks are full of exhilarating success, crushing rejection, and tough questions -- including ones they have to ask themselves. Emma writes about a bad experience with an investor. A new gossip app called Secret stirs up controversy. And Lauren gets some advice that leads her to a humbling realization about the company's future. And, in just a few weeks, we'll be launching a new show here at Gimlet Media. Check out the promo here!
