What we're about

Seattle Angel is a group of angel investors and entrepreneurs working to bring more education and transparency to the early-stage capital process. Join us for educational and networking events designed for you to connect with, and learn, from angels and entrepreneurs in the community.

Joining our Seattle_Angel Meetup keeps you in the loop for our communications and allows you to register for workshops/events.

These education sessions sometimes are used to prepare for learning about or executing on a first angel investment -- either accepting one for your company or investing in one as an early investor.

We run a Learn-By-Doing entrepreneur/investor due-diligence program event that matches companies and investors and is called Seattle Angel Conference. More info about this at

www.seattleangelconference.com

We put recordings of the workshops at the YouTube Channel -

The Next Step: Pitching

Link visible for attendees

One of the barriers to fundraising for startup founders is that what the investors hear in a startup pitch are not what the founder thinks they were saying. What are the key components of the startup pitch for funding? And how do the investors need to think about what the companies are trying to present?

What are the things in your startup pitch that answer the tasks that the investor is trying to accomplish in the pitch? As an investor, it is likely that there are hundreds, if not thousands, of pitches that you will go through before you have built the high quality portfolio that you are seeking. What needs to be in a pitch for you to take the next meeting with this startup founder?

Luni Libes will speak to the task of engaging with a pitch for early startup founders and explore the key components.

Luni Libes is a 25+ year serial entrepreneur, founder of six startups; Entrepreneur in Residence and instructor at Presidio Graduate School; and Entrepreneur in Residence Emeritus at the University of Washington’s CoMotion, the center for impact and innovation.

Luni is the author of The Next Step, a series of book and classes guiding entrepreneurs from idea to reality; plus blogger and incessant answerer of entrepreneurs’ questions on Quora.

He teaches entrepreneurs through the Fledge accelerators, grows graduates through Africa Eats, teachs investors at theAngelAccelerator.com, makes it easy for philanthropists to be impact investors with Realize Impact, and publishes, blogs, podcasts, and shares thoughts on lunarmobiscuit.com.
