Just like dating, investing is a lot about the relationship. Investors have to be comfortable with the management team that they invest in. That’s because investors have numerous values to offer, well beyond financial capital. Investors can offer sage advice and important connections. Connections to other investors, talent, resources and customers. And, they determine how they can most effectively assist a company by the pitch. That’s why the Dating Game works!
