  2. Hi Naval,

    Just came across AngelList on Twitter. My organization is working on angel investor organizing in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro, primarily in life sciences, but also IT (we are one of the largest centers of medical devices in the world and have a large enterprise software community for health care and retail).

    Would there be a way to partner with AngelList to build a group focused outside of IT and/or with a geographic brand? Or at least to have a discussion around the topic?

    Regards,
    Frank

  3. Naval,

    I read your post “Who has time for meetings?”. I loved it. I agree that you need something short and sweet to share with potential investors following the introduction. Are there samples that you can share that won your interest or examples that you know that sold other angels to have the follow up meeting?

    We’re looking for investors and I want to make sure we approach angels the right way from the start to win that second meeting in which we can go into more detail etc.

    Let me know as it would be much appreciated!

    Best,
    Greg

  6. Thank you Naval (and Ravi) for the refreshing insights you bring through Venture Hacks. I research and write the newsletter for the Inventors Society of South Florida (www.InventorsSociety.net) and I follow Venture Hacks because you are leading edge thinkers for the independent product developers (inventors) who seek financial success through their efforts. You inspire listeners (in my case, the independent product developers) to stay focused on the goal while they are mired in early deveopment issues. I appreciate the many ways you assert that each step in the process bespeaks the outcome.You are inspiration! Thank you!

  7. Wonderful post. I learn something tougher on different blogs day-to-day. It will always be stimulating to learn to read content from other writers and practice something from their store. I’d prefer to use some while using the content on my blog whether you don’t head. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
