An Internet Entrepreneur
Bizak is the brainchild of serial Internet entrepreneur, Tom O'Keefe. His idea was to provide actual financial data to startups and investors, allowing both user groups to compare numbers against industry benchmarks, and of course, other startups. You can learn more about the Web site by watching our video interview with Tom, published through our podcast.
Bizak computes the valuation of internet startups, aggregates that data into comparative benchmarks, and connects entrepreneurs with investors.
During the month of September, Tom (along with each of the eight other finalists) will answer common venture capital-related questions, and present to a panel of expert judges. In addition, members of the VenCorps Web site (an online community of entrepreneurs, investors, and service providers) will vote to help decide which startup wins a $50,000 investment.
Best of luck, Tom!
