just got some relevant news on my email:
the pitch I've done was basically talking about this very exact topic. how to solve the unhealthy social dynamics we're living in. people getting burnouts, more and more sabbaticals and no career. yes, it's very different wording, but it's precisely the same topic and I can see an easy solution for this, which I bet would be quite unique among the 200 participants there.
probably, like I couldn't convince the shark, I won't find anyone there willing to buy it though.
the point here is making another pitch to the sharks, but this pitch I've just created might have a much better chance in this event.
U$160 round trip tickets for 2 nights (as of right now). probably another U$ 100 ~ 200 for a bed, unless I can find some couch surfing. plus food, unless the couch comes with snacks.
oh, the irony... in my mind, here I am with a solution to "end poverty" in the long run but looks like I'm counting my own bucks on the short run. I once believed this was everything wrong with me, now I know it's actually mostly due to the falling society. quite arrogant thing to say, I know. even labeling this as "arrogant" is part of that "unhealthy social dynamics", though.
anyway, I hope I can make it!
