VCs I’ll be avoiding

Vcspam

I've been getting weekly emails from YoungStartup.com. The funny thing is, they're coming through on an account I only use for DNS registration purposes, and I certainly didn't sign up for them. I normally shrug off this kind of thing, but then I actually looked at the details of this one.

$175 to get in the door for entrepreneurs?! If your idea's any good and you have a little bit of hustle, you'll be able to get a meeting with any VC who might be interested. If neither of those are true, then VC meetings won't help you anyway. Whilst not nearly as bad as the ridiculous fees for presenting to some angel forums, I don't believe this is a sensible use of your precious startup funds and it definitely doesn't leave me with a good impression of the VCs involved.
