The entrepreneurial "dating game" show will match entrepreneurs with venture capitalists, giving two startups the spotlight each week and viewers at home a glimpse of what a finance meeting looks like. The show had a tryout season in Connecticut this year, inspired by MoneyHunt Properties' popular World Wide Web site (www.moneyhunter.com), with its venture-community contacts, online advice, and a 40-page, downloadable business-plan template.EDITED BY I.
