Welcome to Investrish, a site about the language of equity financing which we call Investrish. Users of this site will learn Investrish in a couple of ways. We have a vocabulary list called Investor Words on the left of each page which gives definitions for typical industry jargon that is used inside the equity finance world. We also provide an extensive blog aggregation that provides the opportunity for full language immersion by seeing this language used by its native speakers. We also provide information about books, events and other opportunities to practice reading and speaking Investrish with actual investors.
 
The buttons above will bring you to the pages that organize the blogs that are written by various Investrish speakers. They are organized by speaker type, as you can see the categories are Angels, Venture Capitalists, Private Equity and Entrepreneurs. Each area will have its own variations in dialect but overall the language is pretty standardized. Each group is geographically dispersed widely throughout the world. However, it's important to remember that Venture Capitalists consider the San Francisco Bay area or Silicon Valley to be their epicenter, it's where the biggest firms are and the players with the most respect. If you can afford to live anywhere, why not live where the weather is great year-round and you can be surrounded by peers? On the other hand, Private Equity firms tend to be located on the east coast in Connecticut, Boston and New York. When you're dealing with money on that scale, you've got to be close to the action.
