Some (Lite) Advice for Those Seeking Angel Money

The WSJ plays Q&A with former AOL salesman Knox Massey, who now runs Atlanta Technology Angels.  Nothing earth-shattering, but worth an 11-second review:

  • Tech angels don’t want to hear pitches from bagel entrepreneurs (know the investor)
  • You won’t get the money next Monday (process takes a few months)
  • Do more than a Google search (network)
  • You’re not getting a check, you’re getting married (long-term relationship)
  • Shut up and listen (Angels are usually former entrepreneurs who like to feel respected and important–just like you.  And they might even have something intelligent to say).

Let me guess: You’re going to build the world’s most awesomest social network.
