Add to this the piercing stare of the saleslady who made him feel like a filthy pervert just for being there…

The experience was truly appalling.

However, it was this horrible experience that sparked a wonderful idea in Raymond’s mind…

After finding out that his male friends felt the same way when shopping for lingerie, he saw an opportunity to establish a market where basically none existed.

Seed round, pre-revenue, pre-product, no patents, no team… doesn’t matter.

So much so, that recent years have everyone saying “we’re in another bubble”…

“This can’t be sustained much longer”…”It’s looking like the dot com crash 2.0″…

Still VC money flows like Niagara Falls….
