Angel Investing: Keynote Panel

Angel Investing – The Inside Scoop


Angel investments are as old as the world yet not often the first in mind when it comes to finding the funds to start your business. Angels - the word kind of says it all - can be a match made in heaven. They often are Entrepreneurs themselves, having had some/considerable success - and they now want to pay it forward and assist business startups just like yours. Funding studies sponsored by Harvard Business School provide evidence that angel-funded companies have historically been less likely to fail and there is a good reason why...


We are going to share exactly why it can be great to have an Angel Investor in your business. And share all there is know about angel investments. We’ve invited a panel of key Angel Investors to help educate you on how to approach them, what they look for and how to get them to consider funding your venture. Before you launch your business idea, you must attend EFactor’s presentation on Angel Investing in Chicago.

Recap

“This EFactor event was one of the best I’ve attended. The Angel Investment panel discussion was the highlight. The insights, wisdom and candid dialog from the top-flight investor groups was extremely valuable.”

“Tonight’s EFactor event was fantastic, from start to finish. The presentations by Greg and Seyi were wonderful and informative. What an impressive and illustrious panel of angel investors (Karin, Larry, Ron, Gale and Craig) you assembled together. I greatly appreciated how generously and openly they shared their insight, experience, expectations and process for funding. As a woman business owner, I especially appreciated having two women angel investors on the panel too. I knew everyone attending (and the room was packed), learned a lot, ate and drank great food, and enjoyed the networking opportunity. THANKS!!!”

  • It is better to have revenue when approaching professional angel investors
  • It is important to get a warm introduction to an investor
  • It can be a full-time job raising capital
