    Peter, Is there any chance we can organize a meet-up with entrepreneurs and/or inventors with accredited investors and Private Equity Funds to judge how we rate? No VC funds (you need to already have millions in revenue for them), No Service Providers and nobody else who is not either an entrepreneur looking for funding or an Accredited Angel Investor or an Equity Fund. We have to hear directly from the "Angels" of Equity Funds and not just "from other entrepreneurs who made it". Thank you, Stella

      As the plan gets organized, I will put a summary together and run it by Ms. Young before any implementation is done.

      Correction: I will run it by Ms. Young and Peter.

      Sorry I missed it it sounds like it was a great success. Is there anyway you would have another meetup on the art of the pitch?

      Since I had a 50% No-Show rate on this one, probably not.
