Adam & Leo on Startup Junkies – Season 2???

© 2008 iN DEMAND L.L.C.

Just walked out of an intro meeting with the producers of the show Startup Junkies which airs on MOJO TV – we’re exploring the possibility of starring in the show next season. How exciting! Initially, we contacted them after reading a post on John Cook’s blog about Screaming Flea Productions recruiting startups for their new season and thought we’d be a good fit.

I first came across the show while channel surfing one night (Comcast channel 664 for those of you in the Seattle area). It’s a good show to see the ups & downs a startup goes through and the atmosphere they work in, especially if you’re new to the industry. The current season features another Seattle based startup, Earth Class Mail, and documents the company’s struggles with product development, deployment & fundraising. Earth Class Mail is a well funded startup with a seasoned management team but the show is looking for some variety next season with a younger & less experienced crew (sounds like us). They have all their episodes on their website so feel free to tune in. We actually saw Ron Wiener (CEO of Earth Class Mail) at a MIT Venture Labs seminar last month but didn’t get a chance to talk to him.

Overall, the meeting went well and I think it’d be cool to get a chance to be on reality TV. As expected, we were asked about our marketing & fundraising plans as well as other potential checkpoints in the business where we can expect to see some drama. After all, this is reality TV and it’s no fun for the producers or the audience to see everyone holding hands and skipping along in a sunny garden with jolly smiles (then we’d be Teletubbies). It’s still early in the selection process so I’m not getting my hopes up too high and not quite sure what to expect out of the experience. On the plus side, we’ll get some great PR from the show and be able to leverage MOJO’s marketing engine – on the flipside, we’ve never had cameras in our lives so it would be “interesting” (for lack of a better word). Either way, I think it would be a fun experience if we end up doing it…

    Season one was great, loved following that. What’s the word on when Season 2 is out? What business did you pitch?
