Re-definition alert: "Philanthropy"

Be aware that a self-inserted group of parasites which is the startup-funding-specialist subculture has re-defined "Philanthropist" to mean someone who raises money from private investors, as their full-time job/position. Theoretically arose from "ethical" intent/display, but no longer in practice.

So when you see it on business cards, you now know what it actually means rather than what the english word means.
