DEAR EDITOR: I am 48 years old.
Some of my little friends say there are no Angel Investors.
Please tell me the truth; is there an Angel Investor?
115 WEST NINETY-FIFTH STREET.
Not believe in Angel Investors! You might as well not believe in CEOs! You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas Eve to catch an Angel Investor, but even if they did not see one coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Angel Investors, but that is no sign that there are none. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see venture capitalists dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that’s no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world.
You may tear apart the baby’s rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, VIRGINIA, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding.
No Angel Investor! Thank God! he lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay, ten times ten thousand years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of entrepreneurs.
