I caught an article in the Special Financial Report of INC. last month and there was a nice bit of detial on the VC community and a special highlight for the Atlanta Angel / VC market – always nice to see the South East’s Silicon Valley is still getting good press! As I am actively involved these days in start-ups and fundraising, I am always on the prowl for tools to make my efforts more successful. In the article there was mention of Ron Weiner’s post on how to get funding. A minor bit of Googling took me to his home site here.
Overall I thought he had good tips. I felt that they were a bit to high level and generic, but definitely great primers to give people something to think about when going through the process. I personally was looking for my tactical tips – i.e., “when giving a presentation have 10 PPT slides covering XYZ“, or other such specifics. Having been in the hot seat a number of times I can vouch that passion and the moment can take over and without strict bumpers (think bowling bumpers) one can easily stray and damage their ability to communicate.
Nonetheless – check it out, absorb it, and keep innovating. Thoughts? Great additional resources?
