The Entrepreneur's Meeting

ABEST Members and Friends

If you, or someone you know, have had and innovative idea, that could have lead to a high growth company (10's or 100's of millions, or billions), and have been unable to get funding, I'd like you to reply to this email with name, phone and email. Also, I'll need a short description of the idea.

I've been working to pull together this series of meetings. They have only now come together..... at the last minute! At our next meeting, I want to share more detail about the initiative in hopes that it can benefit some of our membership.

Here is an overview:

I am participating in a series of meetings starting tomorrow and running through the week including a private equity conference here: http://oppupcon.com/

The goal of the initiative on which I am working is to assemble funding and support infrastructure for black entrepreneurs in the Atlanta metro. Our initiative is lead by InvestAtlanta, Startup Atlanta and Jumpstart America. A host of community leaders, technology leaders, and established entrepreneurs are also participating.

At our next meeting on 01/14/14, I'll share the results and gather input from the ABEST membership about what you perceive next steps to be.

For right now I need the following....Immediately....

If you, or someone you know, have had and innovative idea, that could have lead to a high growth company (10's or 100's of millions, or billions), and have been unable to get funding, I'd like you to reply to this email with name, phone and email. Also, I'll need a short description of your idea.

I've had people talk to me about ideas they've had while doing research for their Ph.D., or while working on a project for a client. I didn't keep a log of these discussions, but now I need to know. So please hit me back with the information before my meetings begin tomorrow.


Oh, by the way

Happy New Year!
