This is a joint event between our two ongoing series!

The Empire Angels Young Investors Series seeks to provide education and training to young angel investors in the New York area. How do I tell good deals from bad? What are the most important terms to negotiate for? How to I add value to my portfolio companies? Through a curated series of evening workshops, panels and discussion events, the Young Investors Series aims to empower highly successful Millennial professionals with the key skills required to find, execute and support early stage, private investments.

The Empire Angels Young Founders Series seeks to provide education and training to young and first time entrepreneurs in the New York area. Starting a company is hard work, and founders with a strong vision but limited operating experience encounter unique challenges. How can I be an effective 20 or 30-something executive? Should I hire this person or that one? What does branding even mean? How do I build a company culture? How do I convince people twice my age to invest in my company? Through a curated series of evening workshops, panels and discussion events, the Young Founder Series aims to empower Millennial entrepreneurs with the key skills required to compete and succeed.

Empire Angels is a member-led, New York based angel group of young professionals which seek to invest in early stage technology ventures with a focus on supporting young entrepreneurs.
