Investors Dilemma


The case shows an ethical dilemma with Angel investor Arthur Vandelay. His Angel fund has the choice to invest in two different businesses. One was started by a Stanford MBA who may have obtained the idea for the business unethically. The other is run by a hardworking man from Pittsburgh who needs this money to keep his business alive and provide for his family. The Stanford MBA clearly has the better business and Vandelay is the deciding vote. He faces a dilemma on whether to invest with his head or go with his heart.
