Description

TEC Innovation District presents: Gaining the trust of angel investors

Is your company seeking angel investment? You might think that your product is the sole tipping factor for an angel investor considering an investment in your company. In reality, however, it's not that simple. Angel investors are investing in you.

Before an investment can happen, angel investors will gauge if they can trust you. Specifically, they'll want to know about your team's combined experience, commitment to the company and current growth strategies.

Want to make the right impression?

Bring your coffee and head to the TEC Innovation District on December 5 to find out what angel investors are looking for.

Schedule:

8:15 a.m. - 8:25 a.m. Presentation
8:25 a.m. - 9:15 a.m. Angel Q+A session
