I attended a recent FTN event and was disappointed (though not surprised due
to the current climate) to see only one potential VC. He looked around, saw
all the "seekers" and ran. Maybe there needs to be a change in the format
otherwise I can see all events ending up like this. In the past when dot.com
madness was rife it was more akin to a trading hall, but these days I think
it would be better if seeker attendees were better prepared with information
and VC's, Angels or whatever gave notice of their intention to attend. This
would save many seekers (who are often running with a tight budget) the cost
of attending an event from which they wouldn't gain and would make it
possible for VC's to get through project descriptions faster.

Cheers <|:o)

Actually, way back when, 'donations' were whatever you felt like dropping
into a bucket by the door...usually 5 or 10...And, the kinds of characters
that used to go there, like the eloquent Sajiid Mohammed (where the hell is
he?) and others that made it what it became...stopped going. Its
evolved...no question there...better for some...not so better for others. I
wanted to attend a recent function and was asked everything from a business
plan to the size of my waist...hmmmm. Not sure of I wanted to tell 'em
that.
