Often a lot more than one other person!

I am going to try to stay out of the paper for a few weeks... :)

I agree completely. My advice to entrepreneurs is to always find great partners, first.

LOL - why would I lie? The comment moderation system is running on Intense Debate. I am not doing ANY moderation. Which comment is missing?

It floors me they keep posting here.

Amen! Lots of VCs have blogs, twitter and facebook accounts - read them and engage. Guess what, actually engaging a VC in context is far more powerful than simply showing up at a 'pay-to-pitch' scheme (oh and it is free). :)

This is my blog, i.e. were I post my opinions. To be clear Koby, you reached out to me - my response is specifically about your 'pay-to-pitch' scheme. Additionally, you made your pitch to several employees at our company further calling my attention to your scheme. After reviewing the offer which didn't mention anything about a $4,500 fee I emailed you offering to attend. You explained the fee and I responded that I had a philosophical objection to similar schemes. You argued that I wasn't being objective.

Jason is against pay-to-pitch. He doesn't support angels who take money from entrepreneurs. I don't think he would be any more supportive of middle men like youngStartup taking the money instead. I may be wrong (I reached out to him for clarification).

I appreciate you commenting directly using your real name, but I think it is important for readers to realize that ALL of the posts in support of your program here are from your IP address. Comments from your IP address include: Chris, Carl and Pat. I guess it is possible that you have multiple folks in your office with the names Chris, Carl and Pat - but it seems more likely that you have been responding to comments using fake names. This is just strange. Why bother? What are you hiding?

Talk to Intense Debate - there is no moderation going on here. You know that we know you are using a fake name, right? Your IP address is the same address used by the co-founder of youngStartup in Israel - it would seem YOU are the scared one. I am happy to use my real name whenever I share my opinion. Why aren't you?
