Policy for Submitting Blog Articles to Venture Connectors

We welcome blog submissions by individuals who wish to express their viewpoints and encourage discussion regarding start-up companies, angel investing, venture capital, entrepreneurship, and topics of interest to the Venture Connectors community.

Blogs may be submitted to: contact@ventureconnectors.org. If you haven’t done a lot of writing for the Internet, there are many resources on the Internet for effective blog writing you might want to visit to learn how users read like this one: www.useit.com/alertbox/9710a.html before you get started writing your article.

Screening and selection of blog submissions will be based, in part, on the following criteria: a) support for the Venture Connectors and its mission; b) content clarity and readability to engage readers; c) accuracy of information and facts; d) professionalism and the exercise of good judgment; and e) respect for diverse views and perspectives.

Venture Connectors reserves the right to edit written blog submissions for formatting, spelling, grammar, or as needed. Blog authors will be notified via e-mail before an article is accepted for posting. Any and all blog content is published at the sole discretion of the Venture Connectors.
