There’s a table behind me full of beautiful 20 something modelesque, tall, gorgeous women dressed in Prada and Gucci. In front of me there’s a table packed with 5 young business men from Europe somewhere. They look like they too could be models.
A few minutes in, I realize the table in front of me is a delegation of businessmen from Spain. They are here to work with the WTF or World Tae Kwon Do. But their conversation is the same one you’d hear at any table.
Behind me, the gorgeous girls as saying, “Uhn ni, soh gae ting hae joh!”
They are asking each other to introduce them to European men.
Neither groups even realize they are looking for each other.
This is exactly what it’s like in the Venture Capital and Angel funding world. You might have a startup that needs one missing link.
