I have a contract agreement that tech wildcatters has broken. They will not pay me and they keep making up excuses and fake policies that change. Molly Cain flat out lied to my face so many times I have lost count.  Besides verbal promises about access to investors, introductions, mentoring and corporate perks she also lied in writing.  I have emails, presentations, and my contract and still, Tech Wildcatters is playing games with me.

I basically left the program to focus on growing my business, and then I heard Molly was fired.  Then I heard everyone was fired. So I met with Gabriella Zielke. the only person left. Gabriella is worse than Molly.  She was nice at first, and made even more promises than Molly.  Completely lied to me about getting more and better quality mentors once I leveled up and how my startup would get more benefits and services from sponsors.  Nothing ever happened. The few people she did introduce us to (just email) did not think much of her. One guy who she said was a VC that supports tech wildcatters told me that he does not invest in her companies or anything she is involved in. Those are terrible introductions.

Even after Molly was fired, she contacted me trying to get me to work with her new company Sumo Ventures. I asked her to help me with the agreement at tech wildcatters and she told me not to trust gabriella and that gabriella was the biggest crook in town.  She told me gabriella is using the company money for her own side deals and to pay for her traveling and shopping habit.  Molly said gabriella made her lie to us and that tech wildcatters could never deliver on those promises.  Later I find out Molly was running a scam at Sumo Ventures doing the same thing as tech wildcatters.  Ripping off startups and not paying. 

Then Molly started another company called and told me she got all of this investment and success, but that company is just a web site for her to put her blogs and selfies. After reading some of her blogs, she is clearly a disturbed scammer with very sexist views. She is one of those people that "empower you" but really all she is doing is spreading hate, lies, and ignorant views.  

I think Molly is somehow still involved with tech wildcatters and probably owns part of the company. Her scams are too similar for her not to be.

I have done my part and met all of the requirements in the contract and even the ones they made up. And I am still not leveled up and I have not gotten my check.

I am not the only one. There are a bunch of startups in the same situation. And yes some have gotten bounced checks, kicked out of the program, and gotten IOUs in emails.  

I tried talking to John Reed (supposed to be the co-founder but you can tell he doesn't really want to be there) and Ricky Tejapaibul (mentor who is now CEO but really does what ever gabriella says).  They play dumb and avoid any type of problem or conflict.

I think tech wildcatters uses the startups to get publicity and to make them look reputable to investors. Then they take the investors money instead of letting the investors put their money directly in to the startups.  Then they keep the money and give little to none of it to the startups.  Even the sponsor perks are used by the employees like the free air travel, free food, and events...the startups are promised those things but don't get them (or we have to pay for them).  Its a freaking scam. 

I plan on suing them if I don't get my money and starting a web site that lets the world know their scam.
