funds
We have all heard stories of how hard companies are finding it to raise funds. It feels nice to hear a different story once in a while. I have always tried to maintain a positive outlook in life, and my fool’s optimism tells me that there was never a better time to start on a venture :-). History has it that many of the great institutions we look up to today started off during a downturn. And I for sure wouldn’t want to miss out on the one that’s going on right now.

I happened to be passing by Kevin’s Corner yesterday, and found his posts on fund raising refreshing for my tastes.

As the borders get blurry between F&Fs, Angels and VCs, Scott Shane tries to make some ground with his post which some what demystifies the angel math.

It also brings up the point that entrepreneurs look at angel investments for reasons more than the funds and contacts it brings in. Angels should ideally be less of businessmen and more of what the name means.
