  1. This should definitely be a tv show. I prefer a show with this kind of atmosphere than silicon valley. Nice reference to Gauss.

  2. Men! As a postgraduate with a few side projects for startups, I love this video to pieces. Cheers Joma we want to see your company grow.

  3. That chess game reminded me of Light vs L tennis game lol. This is how you do a live action anime adaptation. 🙂 😛

  4. so that john guy is what like Big Head from silicon valley? Don't worry, he will become a professor at Stanford instead of working at your B grade company notvine. 😛

    juz kiddin yo. whats poppin?

  5. dude, i started to record my videos yesterday,,, dunno why yt would recommend me on this channel… i think until now i got like 0 value (infowise) but i really like your vids. im kinda stuck here. (no ad – i'd never upload any vids on this acc anyways :D)

  6. listen man. I
    think this startup series of your's is funnier than HBO's silicon valley. and your acting skills are also amazing. keep on it man.

  7. fuck i thought this series was an actual vlog of a startup from day 1.. but the entire thing is a skit lmao

  8. Anyone else think this is a lot like HBO's Silicon Valley? Like almost down to the exact characters? Either way, this series is great

  9. Joma your shit is addictive! I was literally coding until I came across this and I have been watching your videos for like an hour. 😀
