Good morning, All,
Our next Breakfast with an Investor will be Wednesday, February 18th and our guest investor will be Alicia Syrett, Founder and CEO of Pantegrion Capital, an angel investment firm that focuses on seed and early stage investments, and a member of several angel networks, including Golden Seeds and NY Angels. She’s a very active investor and startup advisor – and she’s currently looking for NYC-based early stage investments. For the record, because we keep the group small, every investor who has spoken at one of our breakfasts so far has made him or herself available to attendees afterwards, meaning private consultation. RSVP here and hope to see you there!
For the record, the first so-called New Economy forged by technology was during the Web 1.0 days, when companies raised money from investors and were suddenly ‘successful’ – on paper. Some had to learn the hard way that building a company meant building a business – one that had earnings, profits. That is a measure of success in any economy, not the OPM – Other People’s Money, aka, investor money.
