July 26, 2015: The past month I have continued to see my usual variety of deals. I attend some of the local pitch events, of which there are many choices, and I routinely respond to requests from UT students and faculty who have dreams to disclose.
I seem recently to have run into a rash of especially bad ideas. They are too small, have been tried hundreds of times, are aimed at spaces already well covered, or have no viable business model. I could pile on many more objections, but that’s a good start.
