What is the most unreasonable funding request you have ever received as an angel investor?

I was doing a talk at a startup event in Kuala Lumpur.

This weird engineering type approached me after.

“Hi Sir, Alex. I want to copy Facebook”

“Ok. Like, what niche are you targeting?”

We were walking down a corridor, leaving the room. I was a little distracted.

“I want to copy Facebook”

“But, there is already a Facebook, so I don’t get what your business model is?”

I actually attempted to ask serious questions, taking this seriously, I just forget what exactly.

“I want to be like Mark Zuckerberg. I want to copy Facebook”

“Huh? I don’t see how that will work. What insight do you have I don’t get?”

“I want to copy Facebook”

“Best of luck with it!”

It was truly fecking bizarre. You can’t even make that shizzle up. I remember it clearly because it was just so weird and delusional.
