Smart$ program informs, inspires, educates, and prepares business angels and venture capitalists for future investments in IT startups.
By Pemo Theodore (Founder, Ezebis)
Join us at the StartupMonthly Smart$ (SmartMoney) (November 12-15, 2012 in Silicon Valley). I am very excited to be asked to coordinate this program and it is shaping up to be an exciting line up of venture capitalists and angel investors who are significant in the startup ecosystem.
The program includes a visit to Steve Blank’s ranch and an intimate fireside chat with him, with a number of well-known female venture capitalists and angel investors to ensure that you get a balanced conversation and viewpoint of the industry. We also will have such stars as Robert Scoble, Vivek Wadhwa, Chris Yeh and Jeff Pulver.
The program informs, inspires, educates, and prepares business angels and venture capitalists for their future investments in IT startups. During the program, you will learn about angel and VC investments, deal-structure, market trends, and the Silicon Valley ecosystem. You will get connected to leading investors in Silicon Valley, visit successful startups, and get acquainted with accelerator programs. You will become part of a StartupMonthly Global network and join StartupMonthly Angels Club.
I look forward to meeting you and learning along with you from some of the best investment professionals in the industry.
