Funding Stories

This months topic is based on requests from our last meetup after hearing some brief but tantalizing snippets! 

We want to hear your experiences (both good and bad) so if you've taken funding (or decided to stay bootstrapped) and you would like to share the benefit of your experience let me know and I'll arrange a panel.

    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

    Read worthwhile for wormhole!

    Sorry I couldn't make this session. Seems really wormhole and relevant to the process we're currently going through. Looking forward to the next meet up.

    I mentioned yesterday a group who every month get startups in front of potential investors for a pitch. You can actually just rock up and watch to see if this fits for you. Details at http://www.theideasfactory.com/event-26/.

    Incredible, I got a real insight into what getting funding actually involves from people who've actually been there and done it. Though I think others like myself totally bootstrapped and took out bank loans but that was 2004, when there was a lot of pessimism about the web.

    Great insight and presentation. Would have been great to also hear from others about their experience, though this may have not allowed enough time for such a detailed and useful presentation from Matthew.

    Sorry not to make this one - I'm back on Tara gymnastics duties. Have a good one and hope to see you next time!

    Sadly will be missing this one, particularly as I asked to hear about it last time. If anyone fancies sharing the highlights that'd be great :)

    Just about to embark on a crowd funding cycle with a new service called sharein.com. I also will be interested in what people think of the middlemen that I keep coming across or investment agents, are they genuine or are they just a scam? How do you tell the difference?
