Brilliant! I met them all. You forgot a few new ones:

- Incubator partner/recruiter -> Like a vampire, only the blood of virgin startups attracts these folks.

- Tech event organizer -> Recruits the same 5-6 VC and angels for 3-4 events every month. Lives off naive startups who pay to 'demo' at these events

- Burned out bee -> Worked at 3 hot startups, he called them stupid and ridiculous despite each of them going Public. Keeps missing the big paydays for being unable to keep quiet.

Those are awesome. Spot on, mate! Although I admit I have "recycled" some VC speakers for events I've put on in the past :)
