So you want to be an Angel Investor
Limited Capacity seats available

Angel investors are individuals who invest in entrepreneurial firms. Unlike venture capitalists who invest “other people’s money”, angel investors invest their own money, typically in amounts ranging from $10,000 to $250,000. Although it has been around for decades, angel investing as a source of funding for entrepreneurial startups has gained more prominence in recent years. This session will attempt to de-mystify the process of angel investing for aspiring and novice angel investors. It will explain the major steps and financial terms associated with funding a startup company in user-friendly terms and provide a real-world case that illustrates the challenges and opportunities faced by angel investors. As we seek to drive diversity in entrepreneurship, one way to do that is to bring more underrepresented groups to the funding side.  Women and minorities are especially encouraged to attend!
