This Week in Crazy

Had a great afternoon with my cofounder Zao Yang yesterday on This Week In Venture Capital. Mark Jeffrey invited us over and we’ll post the video once it’s ready. Until then, just wanted to make a comment on deal sourcing. For some reason linkedin has become the refuge of crazy – While folks like Angel List have an awesome curated list of deals for angel investors, how has Linked In became the calling of insane investors and nutty founders.

As an example, I give you one of my most recent messages from linkedin:

“I am privileged to contact you of my intent to invest a huge fund in your country, with interest in the following sectors: Banking, Real Estate, Stock Speculation, Mining, Transportation, Oil & Gas and Tobacco. If you think you have a solid background and idea of making good profit in any of the mentioned business sectors in your country and you are interested, l will need your email address for the detail of the investment or you can contact me through this email sim0000031@yahoo.com, . I look forward to hearing from you.
Regards,
Michael Simone”

Sorry Michael, my schedule is full for the next ohhh decade or two…
