Please do not raise the requirements for an accredited investor. At a time when the economy needs all of the investment capital it can use, it is a terrible time to reduce the pool available. I have been investing since the 1980's and do not see any reason to raise the limits.

If you would like to contact me please use email at [email redacted] or phone [redacted]. If you would like to know more about me or my fund:

Thank you for your consideration.
