Hokies Funding Distant Hokies

Wuz gud, homies?

VT Investor Network has made their initial investment. Bully for them.

This is a group of “Hokies” (a Hokie is a thing or whatever, and the appellation is applied to students and alumni of the Virginia Polytechnic Institute) that have banded together to form an angel investment partnership with the avowed purpose of funding projects and start-ups founded by other Hokies.

An investment partnership invests money to make money, mmmkay? We all understand this. Bitches got to be on they grind. So it isn’t really fair to criticize these guys for making their first investment in the most promising venture they could find.

But I’m going to criticize them anyway: why couldn’t you all have made your first investment in a promising company that is headquartered at or near Virginia Tech? If you really want to help Hokies, invest in the community that supports current students and produces future alumni.

Please understand, I’m not hating on ThreatQuotient or your dumb investment group. All I’m saying is, you know what community isn’t hurting for start-up capital? Dulles.

…and that’s all I’m gonna say, mmmkay?

Go Hokies.
