Event description

Description

Join us for an event with distinguished HBS Professor Lynda Applegate as we discuss angel investing, the capital lifecycle, and entrepreneurship in Michigan. This is a must-attend event for people interested in angel investing now or some point further along in their careers.

The event will start off with a case study led by Professor Applegate. All event attendees will receive an advanced copy of the HBS "CommonAngels Ventures" case, along with some questions to frame the discussion. After the case discussion, we'll transition to panel of HBS early stage investors to learn from their experiences in investing in Michigan. The event will conclude with a short discussion about HBS Alumni Angels, and whether there is interest in forming a local Detroit chapter.

Following the event, attendees are invited to proceed from Grand Circus downstairs to the Broderick Grill for informal networking and a Happy Hour (cash bar).

Attendance is open to HBS graduates, Harvard graduates, and guests.

For those driving, please see available parking options near Grand Circus.
