They became a joke around the office - Send an LOI in early January and receive a postcard around Thanksgiving that your LOI did not meet the criteria for further funding. Thanks, we kind of figured that out.

A black box. It appears they want their name on things (since the name is all over LA). Is it true that the magic with them is apply 3 times, then you'll get funded? If so we have two more times to go.
Not accessible.
