How do you respond to an email from a frustrated entreprenuer like this one?
From my experience in today's climate:
- Unless your best friend in the world -- whom you happen to have embarrassing pictures of -- is a VC partner, please do not contact any VC. It makes no sense.
- Passion, experience, real-world results are not qualifiers for introduction to VCs. An MBA from some elite school with 20 board members who know Jack Welch personally, with an extremely complicated idea that has never been built, are preferred.
Jerry Colonna takes that on in his most recent Inc column and does a great job. If you are a frustrated entrepreneur, go read this.
