INVESTOR NETWORK: Is your angel accredited?



Bookmark and Share
Welcome to Angel Capital Summit 2010. Rebuilding the Economy, One Success at a Time!

The Angel Capital Summit is a volunteer-driven ‘design/build’ event that helps entrepreneurs get their businesses to the next level. Started in 2007, run on the Business Catapult platform, it is now the largest entrepreneur investor fair in the US. Learn More: http://angelcapitalsummit.org/

Link to more on angel investors: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angel_investor

Angel Investors vs Accredited Investors

IMPORTANT: Try to find accredited investors at this and any event! A accredited investor is a registered investor that knows risk. When somebody says that the are an angel, I often remind them that angels are not of this world! Sometime your angel investor will turn into an “weeping angel” from Dr. Who ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blink_(Doctor_Who) ). You can find lots of accredited investors at events and lots of registered advisers that represent accredited investors! ALWAYS ask “Are you an accredited investor” as they are not angels, but they know risk and the know about getting good returns!

RANDOM MUSING: Big Mac a trend?



Bookmark and Share

“More inflation warnings on Wednesday in China, this time from a highly symbolic source. The price of a Big Mac has risen from Rmb14 to Rmb15 at the branch of McDonald’s around the corner from the FT’s Beijing bureau – part of an across-the-board price hike that the US fast food chain blamed on rising costs of ingredients – even if that is still less than two-thirds of the price of a Big Mac in the US.” Read more: http://www.economist.com/blogs/freeexchange/2010/11/exchange_rates
