This hour long event will feature three investment ready companies pitching to a panel of four experienced angel investors including Rockies Venture Club Executive Director Peter Adams. The pitch will be 5 minutes long with 5 minutes for Q&A and 5 minutes of feedback from the angel investors. After the four companies pitch the audience will have a chance to vote for what they think is the most fundable company and will be able to compare their votes to those of the investors.
This will be a valuable event because it will show people what investors look for when investing in deals, what a quality 5 minute pitch looks like, and how companies begin the process of raising angel capital.

Presented by Peter Adams, co-author of Venture Capital for Dummies and Executive Director of Rockies Venture Club, this two hour workshop provides an overview of angel investing for those who are curious about how it all works.

We will cover the bases of how angels who do REALLY well with investments do it. Topics will include sourcing deals, due diligence, valuation of early stage companies, term sheets and negotiation and exit strategies, and finally the current trends in the capital market.This is a great place to get started with angel investing!
