Just read on sgEntrepreneurs that our friends over at Vickers Capital Group are involved with a cool new TV program called “The Angel’s Gate“. The premise is simple: Entrepreneurs are given a chance to pitch their dream to a group of Asia’s most successful investors.
Last time I was in the UK I saw a show with a similar premise running on the BBC called “Dragon’s Den“. What I like about the concept of these shows, beyond the fact that they promote innotivative thinkers and entrepreneurs, is that they make visible the somewhat mysterious world of VC and angel investment. Being witness to the pitch process, negotiation, deal closing and subsquent follow-up of a running business is highly informative and entertaining.
I’m looking forward to a spin on the idea with an Asia twist!
