2018 resolutions - crowdsourcing, voice control, and "no" to venture funding

After attending the final round of a startup competition by Telenor in 2017 November, I realized that the startup scene is just not for me or Proofread Bot. I am disinterested in promising anyone an x times return for their money, and sending them weekly reports on how their return is progressing, especially when Proofread Bot is starting to compete against big boys like Microsoft. On the other hand, I am interested in making Proofread Bot the best grammar and style assistant, and I can achieve this goal for the tool without external resources. How?
