New York City, NY
Every since I started responding to some of the questions posted here on StartupNation.com, I noticed that one of the most discussed subjects is how to identify and connect with investors. Unfortunately, it is hard to ignore that this subject is also surrounded by many myths, misconceptions, and ill-conceived offerings from professionals willing to “help”.
The private equity arm of our firm will start raising about $10 million for two new funds as of next month and we thought about chronicling our foray into the capital markets in a detailed and frequently updated blog. The idea is a workshop-type set up where we make the entire process completely transparent, share our strategies, feedback, and experiences in order to dispel some of the myths and misconceptions that exist in this field.
We are thinking about a subscription based format where subscribers pay a nominal monthly subscription fee to help us cover the cost for the project. In return, we would provide:
· transparent accounts of the entire process, which will be updated daily,
· share our strategies, resources, and experiences,
· discuss what works and what doesn’t and why,
· open up our conference room and internal meetings via video feeds; and
· interact with subscribers in a designated forum.
Think of it as riding shotgun during the entire process.
We haven’t decided to pull the trigger on this, so your comments, ideas, and feedback would be greatly appreciated. Also, please feel free to let us know what you would expect to see in a blog like this and we could make this worth your while.
