As we continue to evolve our efforts at StartupLounge.com, weâ€™re always trying to find new and innovative ways to foster early-stage entrepreneurship in the Southeast. In anticipation of our next StartupLounge.com Capital Connections event, we have decided to hold another quarterly event: Angel Lounge.
There are a lot of new angel investors out there, as well as many that lurk, but arenâ€™t quite sure where to begin. Well, weâ€™re here to help.
Kudos to Charlie Paparelli (of Paparelli Ventures) for suggesting this idea. Charlie is a very experienced angel investor, and the newest member of our StartupLounge.com steering committee. Sig Mosley of Imlay Investments has also graciously agreed to attend and lend his expertise to the room.
The Angel Lounge – Free Lunch!
Building the startup ecosystem in the Southeast (and in particular, Atlanta) is what the Startuplounge.com is all about. The Angel Lounge is an opportunity for our angel investor attendees to get to know each other and for us to get to know you. Our goal is to â€śhelp you help each otherâ€ť get to the right investment more efficiently. In this open, lounge-like, environment, angel investors will meet prior to the Capital Conference to:
- Meet fellow investors
- Gain an understanding of fellow investor interests
- Discuss the various methods of angel investing
- Learn about the various deal structures and what to expect
- Understand how to best evaluate opportunities while attending Capital Connections
- What to expect in the first meeting outside the conference
More importantly, youâ€™ll get to meet some very interesting people just like yourself. And it is literally a free lunch (compliments of one of our sponsors, Adams Capital). Who knows, maybe someday youâ€™ll do a deal together.
If you are an angel investor in the Southeast, and would like to attend, sign up for Capital Connections, and check the “interested in attending Angel Lounge” box. If you would like to participate in Angel Lounge, but won’t be able to make the Capital Connections event, let us know. The cost is free, but space is limited.
Angel Lounge will be held on Wednesday, January 30th at the offices of Adams Capital in Atlanta. The actual Capital Connections event will be held a week later, on Wednesday, February 6th.
