I'm really interested in the intersection between nonprofits and startups: the companies that have been rejected from other angels or VCs for not being "investment ready" meaning no product, no prototype, or merely having intentions. I made the same mistake myself a few years ago, starting a company that was better off as a nonprofit. My job therefore is to convince clients that tax exemption has a host of advantages that often (not always) make it a better option than the angel/VC route.
Companies that are already profitable.
