Finding the right angel investor could help you get your start-up off the ground. Angel-investor networks are a good place to start looking for funding. These national and local groups of angels meet — formally or informally — to discuss deals and learn about the best new business opportunities. Each network works in a slightly different way: Some may charge fees for making presentations and some may charge a fee to apply for consideration. Some even require an official introduction to the group by an angel member while others solicit ideas via the group’s Web site.” – INC.COM Website

Thought this sort of information some people might have looked at and some might not have.

Hope it would be useful for 1 at least.

US BailOut – Executive Bonuses November 21, 2008

“Outrage at what the government is doing to bail out floundering companies, financial and otherwise, is at such a high level that people can’t even take a joke about it.” – ClusterStock Save the Economy – Raise Economy Bonuses

WallStreetfighter has run a paradoy on it, and must read the comments by users in there..

By investing a large portion of the government bailout in executive bonuses we are, in turn, investing in the infrastructure of the American economy. Suppose you are CEO of a major financial institution like me and you’ve just been given a multi-million dollar check for your loyal service over the last year. Now, what will you do with that money? You’ll buy Manhattan real estate, that’s what. So now you own a very nice 3BR, 3 1/2 Bath condo in TriBeCa with a private terrace and brand new Viking range and you’ve paid top dollar for it. The surrounding property values will rise as a result of your purchase and attract new buyers to the neighborhood. The mortgages issued to pay for these condos will help support needy banks and the stores in the neighborhood will have a new customer base. Maybe one of those stores does so well that the owners open a second location uptown or in Boston? I suppose they’ll need to hire a staff to run the place, don’t you? Job creation. And maybe one of those employees in that store in Boston eventually saves up enough money to make a small investment. What then? Then he can come talk to my friends and I, the ones whose selfless actions led directly to his prosperous position.

Friday – thought would add something on a lighter note…

For the budding Entrepreneurs,

I would start this series with few interesting content and articles I have read.

First in line would be “Art of the Start” by Guy Kawasaki. A front line speaker and venture capitalist.

“Art of the Start” deals with key elements an entrepreneur needs to know and learn while approaching and managing his/her startups.

Here’s his video while he is really jacked up doing this presentation. Really inspiring for budding ones.

Guy Kawasaki – Art of the Start

I would welcome others to write few in these lines, if possible.
