Welcome to Business Black Belt!
My ongoing series on business development.

Each week I interview an angel or VC investor, an expert in business development or financing, or an entrepreneur who offers some keen insights into building your business as well as their experience working with investors.

Today, I'm talking with long-time investment banker Greg Writer, founder and CEO of the Angel Network. Greg has over 31 years experience in corporate finance, capital formation.

At 21, he was the youngest owner / operator of a full service investment banking firm in the history of the US -- directly involved in over $100 million in financings, IPO's and acquisitions for early stage companies.

Some ideas for our discussion:
  1. What are you seeing as the priorities for financing a business these days?
  2. What are the first 3 things you want to know about a business?
  3. What is it about the entrepreneur him/herself that is important?
  4. How do I grab your interest with my "elevator" pitch?
  5. What do you look for in a business plan?
  6. Biggest causes of failure and what to do about them.
  7. What are we missing success-wise, that we should be including?
  8. Where do most people's bubbles get burst and how to get beyond it
