Founder Insight 1/11/12

TheFunded.com Open Letter

Posted by Gopal Kamath on 2012-01-26

PUBLIC:

Founder Insight is a weekly newsletter that provides global insights from the people building great startups. Each week we’ll send you an exclusive training video from inside the Founder Institute, as well as other helpful resources from startup communities around the globe. Click here to subscribe

Editor's Note: At the Founder Showcase next Thursday, we will for the first time host TheFunded.com's Annual Entrepreneur Investor Awards, to celebrate the best startup investors of 2011. These are not your average 'popularity contest'-awards. In fact, the main criteria are the ratings and reviews the investors receive from the Founder and CEO members of TheFunded.com. Yesterday we announced the finalists here. Take a moment to recognize these highly-rated, and entrepreneur-friendly investors.

And, if you'd like to join us, use our best 25% discount for newsletter subscribers at http://foundershowcase.com/tickets with the code 'insightful'. Mark Suster, Mike Maples, Jr., and Dave McClure are speaking, and we'll have over 150 investors and press in attendance.
