We reached out to startup founders around the US who had recently raised money from angel investors. We were delighted to get a response from KJ Dhaliwal, the Founder and CEO of Dil Mil. Based in San Francisco, Dil Mil has raised money from an all star group of angel investors who you can read more about on their Angel List profile.

But that's not even the best part! The best part is that when KJ set out to start his company, he actually met his co-founders by attending a Startup Weekend! Which just goes to show, that anything is possible at Startup Weekend. Here's a snapshot of KJ's team (taken on July 1st, 2015 from their Angel List profile page):
