Since one of the topics we cover here is venture capital and financial matters, I thought i would let both potential investors and entrepreneurs know one aspect of raising money. I belong to an investment organization that meets once a month. It is attended by bankers, venture capitalists, angel investors, and a few angel managers. Typically one or two entrepreneurs presents each month. They have about 45 minutes to make their pitch. They make a presentation which really covers their business plan. I'd say about 1 in 10 appeals to me. In order to present, they must be invited by one of the members.
