Pitching Startups In Articles

from the I-wonder-who-he-knows...? dept

While this article about a new startup is interesting, it basically reads like a pitch for funding from MyCornerDeli.com. This makes me wonder who the CEO of that company knows at WiredNews. Besides, once you finish reading through the article, you’ll probably realize that this guy really doesn’t need venture capital, but some well placed angel and strategic investors. I’m just wondering what it takes to get other startups pitched like this via WiredNews. Maybe there’s a business model for them somewhere… They write up a really nice review of it and send it out to the world in exchange for a percentage.
