There are 67 days left until Demo Day. That means 1608 hours, 96,480 minutes or 57,788,800 seconds.
After doing that math, we were shocked that there were less than 2000 hours left for the teams to crank out code, push product and get traction before the big day. We got to thinking, if that number made us stress, how it would make the teams feel…To begin the conversation we asked the teams how many hours they each work on average a week, then followed that up with the real numbers to get their thoughts on their looming deadline.
How many hours a week do you work?
“Well let’s see, we work 8am to 10pm, 6 days a week so I’d say between 80 and 90 hours?”
“Easily 100. I work 14 hour days, 7 days a week.”
“Let’s just say I’ve closed Notman House every night this week. At 2am. I’ve also opened it every day this week. At 8am”
“How many hours are there in a week? That’s how many I work.”
So how does it make you feel that there are about 1600 hours left before Demo Day?
“Off the record? Can I swear in the blog?”
“Excuse me while I go cry in the corner.”
“I need to stop wasting hours on sleep!”
“I think I need to go change my pants…”
“Excited! I can’t wait to see how our company evolves”
And now there’s only 1607 hours left…
