Any entrepreneur can apply for a hearing to Maverick Angels or Keiretsu Forum, they said, and those who are chosen to move forward get weeks of free coaching and mentorship on their pitches before they’re asked to pay. Also, entrepreneurs don’t have to pay — they can drop out if they want.
Who said we need free coaching and mentorship? We're here for money AND smart people. I don't know any good startup that is looking ONLY for money. Heck, no! The successful investment is a combination of ENOUGH money taken from the RIGHT people who can CONTRIBUTE and who know their shit. Pardon my French.
