    Hoping to wade through my swamp of work and make it to this event! But if I drown on the way, and don't make it this time, feel free to connect with me online.

    I write sharp, persuasive, creative copy (website content, blogging, slogans, branding, press releases etc).

    So if your company needs GOOD WORDS, give me a shout :)

    Cheers

    Hi All,
    I'm a Start-Up Entrepreneur and Angel investor in Start Up Businesses. Having launched my own Start Up fund in January 2014 I'm looking to support at least two new start ups a week. If anyone knows of any good start-ups that need investment I would be happy to take a look.
    So far I'm closing on about 11 businesses and need to get my average up to hit my 2014 target.
    You can find out more at http://www.rajdhonota.com/#letmehelp
