Personally, I thought they were very entertaining. I wouldn't have lent
them money for a bag of crisps.

But on a more serious note, I found it quite disappointing in that the
journalist was determined to be on a real downer on the whole industry.
That slow motion shattering screen kept re-appearing as if to forecast a
grim warning to us all. Yes - some of the valuations and sums involved are
seemingly ridiculous, but he was so incredulous that the VC had already made
a million. And he kept harping on and on about profit - pah! He know

Also WHY was the guy from Click Mango so reticent about admitting that
Joanna Lumley's role was "to bring people into the tent". Of course that's
why she is onboard, she didn't seem bothered about this and it's something
I'm sure she's very good at - why was he so adamant that she wasn't there
for this purpose? He just made me very suspicious..

Anyone think he was related to Lord Rothschild? Uncanny resemblance I
thought... ;o)

What did we all think of the programme then?

I particularly liked the 3 chaps who were looking for 0.5m funding for a
mainstream, b2c & b2b renting & selling property web service, who stated in
a presentation to a VC that the 0.5m seed financing would fund all the
online and offline marketing / development.

I also enjoyed their exit route strategy which they discussed to the VC,
which was to go to IPO by the end of the year and then all get out of the
company at this point as they believed the bubble would burst by or near
this point. They didn't get funding from this VC.

I wonder how many of the startups out there share this purely short-term
gold rush view and how many are actually putting real thought into their
business plan after 2001?

The media love it. It's not surprising.

Be interested in other peoples thoughts on the programme.
