I thought I would start this morning’s broadcast with mention of the article “Angels to women: do you know Brigitte Baumann and Stephanie Hanbury Brown?” by Olivier Jerphagnon for greenfrog.typepad. I found it most interesting, informative, and on topic for Pump Up The Presence listeners, because it discusses international Women Angel investors. Brigitte Baumann is founder of Go Beyond based in Geneva, Switzerland. It “enables novice investors to GET GOING and experienced investors to GO BEYOND”. She is also President of the Board of EBAN, “the European Trade Association for Business Angels, Seed Funds, and other Early Stage Market Players”. And who is Stephanie Hanbury Brown? She has been Managing Director of Golden Seeds since its inception in NYC in 2004. To learn more about Brigitte Baumann and Stephanie Hanbury Brown, read the article by Olivier Jerphagnon entitled “Angels to women: do you know Brigitte Baumann and Stephanie Hanbury Brown?” for greenfrog.typepad.
Have you ever heard of newmeaccelerator.com?
“Its mission is to accelerate, educate, and inform underrepresented technology entrepreneurs around the world.”
And what is “NewMe” an abbreviation of? New Media Entrepreneurship. It was conceived in 2010 with the creation of a conference in Washington DC that included top minority startups, business leaders, venture capital stakeholders, and key government officials from the SBA (Small Business Administration), FCC (Federal Communication Commission), and NTIA (National Telecommunications and Information Administration). newmeaccelerator.com looks for technology product-focused companies dealing with the consumer internet and/or mobile space, as well as cloud computing. However, even though NewMe isn’t particularly interested in digital publishing (or at least that’s what they say), it wouldn’t hurt to apply, just in case if you just might catch their attention!

and read the article by Colleen Taylor entitled “Inside the NewMe Accelerator 2012 Startup House [TCTV]” for TechCrunch.
I also came across an interesting article entitled “Venture Deals: Understanding The Venture Capitalist Industry”, about a book by Jason Mendelson (a former lawyer) and Brad Feld, an entrepreneur entitled “Venture Deals: Be Smarter Than Your Lawyer and Venture Capitalist”. It’s great for the entrepreneur looking to raise money using VC firms for the first time. You can pick it up at your local library, or you can purchase it on Amazon! You can buy either the hardcover starting at $28.42, or the Kindle ebook (which is my choice) for $27.47, and it’s auto-delivered wirelessly to you!
I will be posting a text version of this broadcast with all related links to sources entitled “Pump Up The Presence Live Broadcast 52: Women to Angels, how to be a new you, and how to be smarter than your lawyer or venture capitalist” on the Inter-Global Media Network website.
