can make it big. Usually, it takes big money to make bigger money. This gentlemen proves the theory that not all investments have to be large, to make millions. Congratulations.

Over 50,000 companies received angel investments last year, with the average total funding in an angel round being between $250,000 and $500,000. The angels and early stage funds that invested in Aaron Patzer and Mint did very well for themselves and the Mint team, and helped to create a breakthrough product that millions of people find extraordinarily useful. And the problem with that is…?

The re-birth of US dominance does not lie with quick gain hit-and-run investors but rather with those who are able to recognize, commit to, support, foster and invest in cutting edge technologies that can penetrate the world market. If ‘small is beautiful’, then either 5.8 foot super-investor or cutting edge nano technologies are all part of the bigger picture necessary to keep the US as the entrepreneurial giant of the 21st Century. Many economies can copy, perhaps more cheaply, and they do, but they are behind the curve when it comes to creativity and shaping the future.

Thats a seed investor. And not one other investment of his has paid back. His relationship was consultant. None of this makes the guy an angel. These guys are worse than Hollywood for baseless self promotion – theres no news here.
