As many of you know, I'm busy trying to cultivate the start up scene in Seattle! Thus, my endeavors -- Founder's Co-op, RevenueLoan, and TechStars. I am deeply passionate about helping entrepreneurs and early stage companies get capital to grow!
About a year ago, I became aware of an initiative run by Jason Calacanis called Open Angel Forum (OAF). The program tries to marry high quality angels with high quality angel investment opportunities at NO cost to the entrepreneur. This kind of event resonated with me a lot - I attended OAF in Boulder and thought it was great! I've known Jason since the 90's and I recently agreed to host Open Angel Forum the night before TechStars DemoDay in an effort to attract more angels to the Seattle event.
So it's my pleasure to announce -- two exciting angel events for investment opportunities in Seattle – ever! Hosted back-to-back on purpose, this is going to be a two days of angel and entrepreneur events in Seattle! These events are invite only so follow instructions below!
I) November 10th – Open Angel Forum, 7pm.
Join Jason Calacanis, myself and many other angel investors for the first meeting of the Seattle chapter of the Open Angel Forum! We'll have food and drinks while hearing 5 minute pitches from 6 start up companies. We're planning for plenty of fun and time for networking - even a poker game after! Register online here: Angels, Entrepreneurs, Service Providers.
II) November 11th – TechStars Investor Day, 9am.
Ten exciting new companies from the TechStars class of 2010 in Seattle will give short eight minute presentations highlighting the business and investment opportunity. The style is fun and entertaining, it's a different kind of pitch event that includes amazing opportunities for networking as well. This event is invitation only and registration is required.
