There are 99 companies looking for funding for every investor. The best
postings are short ads that are really to the point. Four sentences that
are well-composed will beat four paragraphs every time. It should say:
"This is the industry we're serving. This is the problem we're solving.
And this is how we make money doing it."

A bad posting doesn't give any indication to the investor why they would
want to invest in that company.

Are Charity Fundraisers Spying on You?
May 18, 2010 | SmartMoney Magazine | by Anne Kadet. Donor
research isn’t new, of course. In a bygone era, fund-raising sleuths
spent days at the library and county clerk’s office, scribbling facts on
index cards. More recently, major charities have spent large sums on
donor data to prepare for capital campaigns. But now, for as little as
$3,000 a year, even smaller nonprofits—like the Cape Cod Commercial Hook
Fishermen’s Association—can use databases that estimate everything from
a donor’s net worth to the size of her mortgage. According to nonprofit
marketing-research firm Campbell Rinker, nearly half of all charities
now use these tools to research donors.

The big money comes in through the out door
July 20 2009 12:09 | Financial Times | By Jonathan Moules. A
recession is said to be the perfect time to start up a business. It is
also the moment to plan selling one. Coutts, the private bank, found
that 54 per cent of their owner-manager clients ponder the best way to
offload their business on a daily or weekly basis while 71 per cent
consider their exit at least once a month. The winter of recession is
the ideal time to start planning a sale. The average sale of a business
takes two years to organise properly, so anyone wishing to take
advantage of the next economic upturn should start preparing today.
