Pricing and Multiplayer Mode
As we previously mentioned, some AI features are now in the $19/month Ember plan. Unfortunately running AI tools is not cheap, especially with the prompts we are using that are personalized based on your startup information.
We hope you see enough value in your personalized startup copilot and tools, that less than $1 a day is a reasonable ask.
If you don't think we are providing enough value, please reach out and let us know what we can do or add to FounderWay.
Coming this week, we are releasing connection codes! These codes will allow incubators and your mentors to follow your journey so they can provide advice and resources that you can use immediately. Stay tuned for a more in-depth email with how to use connection codes, and how to manage your connections.
Other updates and bug fixes
