That's it. I'm excited about it. I like the format. Many thanks to @brianball who first prompted me to sign up. And to @keni who ensured I did.

@basilesamel Hey baz, you in on SUS?

So, guys who's as excited as I am. 

I think we participants from 200WAD should have a Telegram or WhatsApp Group.

What do you think?

    @seunoyebode - This is a wealth of information for round 1 Seun.
    I am down for learning and brainstorming together.

    Create a whatsup groups called 200WAD_Mafia.
    Let whoever wants to join let us know.
    Thank you for sharing and recommending this idea.

      @keni Reason I didn't do this is that it seems we are just two.

    @seunoyebode hey no :) but I read PG a lot and I used to be part of a structure which is the equivalent of YC in Europe (thefamily.co). Thanks for sharing!
