Hi Alexandra, I am doing research into support for failed entrepreneurs and wonder if you would know what support, if any, Invenfin offers it failed Investors. I have developed a draft Five-step plan "Fast-track Recovery for Failed Entrepreneurs" as a point of discussion.

When so much is invested encouraging start-ups it is disconcerting that there is so little attention paid to supporting the failures through their crises.
