Interview with the Founder of W1SD0M: Matchmaking for Entrepreneurs & Investors

SOCAP Global March 11, 2010

Startup enterprises face a great deal of difficulty not only obtaining the resources they need, but navigating their options to find the ideal investors, legal structures, and other resources. At the same time, investors and capital providers often struggle to find the entrepreneurs that fit their criteria and spend way too much time conducting due diligence. Fortunately, now there’s W1SD0M, an online matchmaking service for entrepreneurs and investors to connect with the people, capital, knowledge, and tools that best serve their needs. I chatted with Founder Greg Berry , one of our mentors and friends here in Boulder, Colorado, who shares a bit of his W1SD0M in this video.
