The nice thing about doing angel investing on the side is that I can invest in fun, if not wacky, ideas from time to time. I put a little money into a friend’s (John Funk, wonderful serial entrepreneur) IP incubator called Evergreen IP. His partners come out of the CPG world and they have licensed an array of innovations/patents and are now bringing several to market. One of these is the Dog Pause Bowl (www.dogpausebowl.com) which is targeted at obese dogs or dogs that eat too quickly. Look out Weight Watchers… He describes this better than I in his post "We Have Liftoff!".
