The Dr. Edwin Cottrell Entrepreneurial Leadership Center invites you to attend the Angel Venture Fair Workshop on Friday, Dec. 6 from 8-10:30 AM at West Chester University’s Graduate Business Center to learn how to successfully pitch to investors and prepare to attend the annual Angel Venture Fair (AVF) in May 2020.
The AVF is the largest gathering of angel investors and entrepreneurs in the mid-Atlantic region, having showcased more than 500 companies over the last 20 years.
AVF workshops have been a 20-year institution in Philadelphia, drawing crowds between 100-200 annually. Friday’s event is the third annual offering in Chester County and is targeted to local emerging companies, professional resource providers, and educators.
The workshop will feature two panels with recognized experts in the region providing critical legal, financial, and business strategies to consider when pitching their companies to investors.
“Raising capital is challenging for most emerging growth companies,” said WCU professor Dr. Monica Zimmerman, Executive Director of the Cottrell Center. “The Angel Venture Fair Workshop will provide a valuable opportunity for emerging growth companies to learn about raising capital, addressing legal issues, and other important matters that emerging growth companies face.”
Two startup founders seeking investment funding will provide presentations and receive feedback from the experts. Their presentations will help all entrepreneurs learn what investors are looking for when deciding to invest.
