Many people kindly met with me about AngelCatalyst over the past two weeks. My thanks to them all: Liz Slavkovsky, Scott Foster, DR Widder, Vin Cardillo, Bruce Warila, Mike Vann, and Ben Riseman.
The very big take-aways: Focus on the MENTOR/INVESTOR experience vs the ENTREPRENEUR experience. Make prediction markets & crowdsourcing a larger part of solution. Consider having entrepreneurs pay for access to key people, but that the $$ goes to charity, and give investors multiple levels of ways to give some of their credibility to a venture.
