Angels Charging Startups

Jason Calacanis is waging a war against angel investor groups charging entrepreneurs to hear their business plans.  I agree with him that this is a very unsavory practice and support him in his crusade.  I am not aware of any angel investor groups in the Turkish market who charge startups to hear pitches, but please let me know if you are know of one.

UPDATE:  Fred's post reminds me of another variant:  The startup coach.  We have a few of these here in Turkey.  If you are thinking of spending your precious cash on one, be very careful in evaluating the merits of the coach you are about to hire.
