With an online platform this disruptive, we are confident that users will flock to us by the millions and will continue to engage with our brand through the entire summer of 2014.” With such an ambitiously long timeline laid out before it, Woo Woo is already in “private beta” and was recently awarded $13 million in seed funding that company officials confirmed will be carefully allocated to inflated executive salaries, break room foosball table maintenance, and a branding division devoted entirely to rhetorically veiling what exactly the company actually does.
