What we're about
This is specialized Meetup for entrepreneurs who are in the process of raising capital from angel investors and venture capitalists. The primary focus is on education, training, and coaching for start-ups. It’s open to all venture entrepreneurs and high-tech start-ups, venture investors, coaches, teachers and advisors or mentors of entrepreneurs. (It’s NOT appropriate for real estate investors.)
The initial purpose of this Meetup is to help entrepreneurs master the investor presentation, and features regular coaching sessions and workshops given by Steve Bowman, the “Pitch Doctor.” As membership grows, we’ll add programs led by other subject-matter experts to guide entrepreneurs through the entire fund-raising process.
All sessions with Steve Bowman are FREE, sponsored by the Philadelphia office of the global law firm DLA Piper.
Goals of Entrepreneurs Seeking Venture Investors are:
To take the mystery out of raising capital from angels and VCs.
To help startups avoid the mistakes that prevent them from getting funding.
To support the local venture and innovation community.
To see to it that more Philadelphia-area start-ups secure the investment they need to grow their companies.
