Almost all entrepreneurs are seeking funding and want to get funded. However, most entrepreneurs have never taken an idea to market or raised private investment or run a startup or had a successful exit.

Our goal is to accelerate your progress, reduce your risk, and if all works out, share in the success.

This webinar sets the stage and gives you a strategic understanding of the successful startup business model as well as why most startups fail. This will help you understand the critical path and provides the foundation for successfully launching your startup. This webinar is also a great opportunity for entrepreneurs already looking for funding to get an investor view on why you may not be closing the deals.

By attending this webinar, you can begin your journey, get your questions answered, gajn insight from a veteran Silicon Valley investor and become part of a global ecosystem.

Organizer Idea to IPO

Organizer of How to Pitch to Investors and Get Funded/Angel Investor Gary Jinks

Entrepreneurship permeates the culture of the Digital Age.

The advent of the Digital Age has democratized innovation and entrepreneurship.

Never before has it been more possible for anyone from anywhere,  with  a great idea and a burning desire to succeed,  to make it big, and,  in the process, change the world in a relatively short period of time.

HP, Intel, Apple, Microsoft, Cisco, Oracle, Yahoo,  eBay, Amazon, Google, Facebook and many, many, many other iconic companies all started with just an idea.

Taking a startup from idea to IPO has taken on mythical proportions in Silicon Valley and beyond.  Many dream the dream, with hopes of launching the "next big thing".

We are a community of entrepreneurs, technologists, academics, financial professionals, corporate executives, attorneys, academics, bloggers, writers, content creators, and social activists.

One of the compelling features of our meetup group is our packed,  busy calendar full of  informative programs and practical activities designed to help our entrepreneurial members achieve their objectives and realize their aspirations.  Taking advantage of  this vast array of relevant content will make you a better entrepreneur.

We believe in working together.  We share resources, exchange ideas, and actively network with each other.  We  participate  in  on-line  as well as  off-line events.

Our events feature expert speakers, networking opportunities, collaboration, community, and fellowship.

Most of our events are free and open to all.
