Seed-Stage Investor Elevator Pitch
September 12, 2011 | 6:00-8:30 PM | 425 Market Street 26th Floor | San Francisco
Event Sponsor: Hanson Bridgett LLP

The Seed Stage Angel Elevator Pitch is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs to network with Seed Stage Angels and other CXOs, present their company and ideas, and learn first-hand how to raise early-stage capital in today's market.

Seed Stage Angel investors generally invest $100,000-$200,000 per person in early stage technology companies as compared to traditional Angels who may invest $25,000 to $50,000 in a deal.

If you are an entrepreneur
in a startup who is currently seeking capital, and would like to present your best two minute elevator pitch to a panel of Seed Stage Angels, you must first send an email Request to Present in advance before you register to receive confirmation from the program manager space is available on the line up. The maximum number of presenters is limited to ten. Entrepreneurs not yet ready to present an angel pitch are encouraged to register and attend. By listening to the pitches, the Q&A, and the critiques you will learn key points to develop an effective pitch.

If you are an investor come and listen to entrepreneurs’ pitches. You never know where you’ll find your next deal. Find out how our panel of investors rate the entrepreneurs’ pitches; which Seed Stage Angels pass and for what reasons; and which entrepreneurs other Super Angels want to talk to ASAP.

During the evening, entrepreneurs on the list will present their pitches to the entire room. Our panel of Seed Stage Angels will ask questions and provide brief feedback. Please note that pitching time limits will be strictly enforced! After the two minute pitch, there will be four minutes of Q&A by the panel, followed by four minutes of non-rebuttal feedback from each panelist.

Our lively panel discussion and Q&A will also provide critical insight into what it takes to raise capital today.
