Though 2017 was sluggish for venture capital deals, 2018 is a fresh start for toasty term sheets.
Angel Venture Fair Education Day, happening Feb. 8 at Quorum, is hoping to connect founders with the basics to raising funds from investors.
The morning will kick off with a panel on the legal intricacies of venture capital (which, believe me, there are plenty of). A trio of entrepreneurs will then make their pitches before the crowd, followed by a panel conversation with a few local investors:
- Gail Ball, managing partner at Chestnut Street Ventures
- Steve Barsh, partner, Dreamit Ventures
- Eamon Gallagher, Program Director for ic@3401
- Jon Gosier, Angel Investor and Venture Capitalist, Southbox
- Vered Nohi, Executive Director, Philadelphia Israel Chamber of Commerce, representing the BIRD Foundation
- Brett Topche, partner, Red & Blue Ventures
Per organizer Marc Kramer, executive director of the Private Investors Forum, attendees will get to hear about industries investors are (and aren’t) interested in, profiles of the type of entrepreneurs investors are seeking to back and the value investors can provide beyond capital.-30-
