Get the Scoop on Angel Financing in 2013

Success Strategies for Raising Funds in Today's Investment Climate

What is the current climate for emerging business investment?  Is there a Series A crunch making it harder for new ventures to find funding?  Are we in the midst of an angel investment fueled bubble like the VC fueled bubble of the dot com boom and subsequent bust?  What do trends in angel investment mean for the Silicon Valley economy and entrepreneurs?

Veteran angel investor, Ron Weissman, recently featured in the Silicon Valley Business Journal’s article, Angel of the Apocalypse, will share his view as he tackles these questions and describes the latest funding techniques involving super angels, incubators, accelerators, and crowd funding.

Join the discussion with Ron to get the scoop on angel financing in 2013 and the answers you need to develop successful strategies for today’s investment climate.

    I know some of you planned to be at seminar on Wednesday, but weren't able to make it. The speaker sat down with me for an interview afterwards on The Founder's Pit Crew. It is only about about two minutes, and will give you the key high-level insights from his presentation:

    Dr. Weissman's presentation was excellent and will help me tremendously. I only wish the slides were available so I could study them. There was so much great information in the slides I couldn't get it all down.

    Ron Weissman gave an excellent talk on Angel funding and where we are. He helped us understand the big picture and how to "think like an angel".

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
