Pitches & Beers

Where: SURF Incubator, 999 Third Avenue, Seattle, 7th Floor
The Idea Behind the Event: Connecting Angels and Companies
The idea behind the event is this: companies seeking funding spend a lot of time trying to meet angels. Similarly, angels spend a lot of time meeting with companies, shepherding deals to other angels, etc. The whole process is fraught with in efficiency, and is very time consuming.
At this event, we will try help me connect the dots. We hope to have a good crowd of active angel investors. We also hope to have a bunch companies seeking angel funds in attendance. We will do a triage. Companies that want to pitch can pitch. The pitches will be short--10 minutes or less! If angels want more info, there will be a chance to share an Executive Summary or Pitch Deck and continue the conversation at a later time.
This should be fun event. Please tell folks about it. I hope to see you there!
