Thanks Jason. Next phase of the course is to flesh out the teams and define roles and select our project for the rest of the course. We'll have our first face to face meeting tomorrow.+Rob Gordon
I'm sorry to hear about your team headaches. We have about 6 of us active in varying degrees with most of the talent weighted on the tech side. There are still a couple of people we haven't ejected yet who have barely engaged at all. A total of 1 or 2 posts in Trello and not much else. One looks like he has mean audio skills so it would be great if we can get him on board.
So our team is still around 8 people from the original group. We'll find out this week how it will pan out for the rest of the project. I think one of the main problems is that everyone is busy and is doing this part time. Plus the course was free so you got a lot of not so engaged people saying why not and then bailing when they saw it would involve actual work.
Are you going to reach out to find another team or has the experience soured you enough that you want to just audit the rest of the course now? There's a spreadsheet of people and a LinkedIn group where people are posting interests and networking to form their own teams if you haven't seen those. Don't give up! The world needs your entrepreneurial passion. The VBT is a great idea and fills a real need no matter how hard it may seem to keep the engagement up. The course has some issues with organization but if nothing else you can cherry pick the best concepts and processes for the VBT.
