Event Details

Join us on January 22nd at Galvanize in Seattle for Preparing for Angel Investors, Meet the Cash. Entrepreneur and Startup Community, MIT Enterprise Forum Northwest, wants to help support your vision. You have your idea, perfected your pitch and now you're ready for angel investors. But have you prepared yourself for Due Diligence?  Just having a good idea and validating a marketplace is not enough. Just as important is your team and your personal situation as Angels decide whether you are creditworthy for an investment.

Topics Covered:

  • What Angels will review in their due diligence
  • The three parts of a successful startup: Idea, The Team, and Your Personal Situation
  • What are the common deal killers
  • Finding the right Angels for you
  • The importance of approaching advisors
     

After the expert presentation, five companies have been invited to give pitches to a panel of investors.  This gives everyone a chance to see all of the elements in real-time and be able to improve their own pitches.  A social hour follows allowing audience members a chance to introduce themselves to the investors and meet Roy Hsu.
