With the goal of informing business startups in West Virginia on how to obtain early-in funding for their ventures while also working to attract new capital for state businesses, TechConnect West Virginia will host “Pitching Angel Investors” – a seminar from 9am-1pm on Wednesday, September 19th at the Advanced Technology Center in South Charleston. The event is part of TechConnect’s NextUp program, made possible by funding from the U.S. EDA and The Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation.
Featuring presentations by Eric Dobson, CEO, and Scott Ewing, COO, of the Tennessee-based Angel Capital Group, the seminar will inform entrepreneurs on what to expect when pitching angel investors and how to prepare. Dobson and Ewing will present their workshop entitled “The Mind of the Investor.” The seminar is oriented to informing investors, entrepreneurs, economic development entities, and the media about how angel investors make investment decisions in companies with little history, but with a tremendous amount of potential.
The event is presented in partnership with Advantage Valley, Charleston Area Alliance, Putnam County Development Authority and the Huntington Area Development Council. For more information, or to register, contact Anne Barth at firstname.lastname@example.org. Registrations due by September 7th.
