The brain power involved is also my main reason to think that the current valuation is way below true value. Any venture capitalist worth his salt would throw much more money at such an awesome team of people working on such a game-changing projet.
I'm extremely new to the whole Bitcoin world. I first started hearing of it and learning about it two weeks ago, and bought my first Bitcoins two days ago. I'm completely absorbed with the whole idea and desperately want to see it succeed. That being read, where can I find Bitcoin startups and send some BTC
their way to help with their success?
Welcome! Yes "absorbed" is the word I'd use to describe how I felt when I first discovered this crazy thing in May of last year.
To find Bitcoin startups, you can see many in peoples' forum signatures, but all there is the big list of BTC accepting sites here: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Trade
Also look in the Marketplace subforum where many startup announcements are made.
