It’s that time of year again. Bob Chaworth-Musters, principal of the Angel Forum, will be hosting a one-day session where up to 34 pre-screened technology, service and manufacturing companies seeking equity funding of up to $1 million, will present to 70+ pre-screened private equity investors (80 investors registered in April). Private equity investor preferences (detailed criteria on homepage) are for both tech and non-tech companies at the “starting sales” stage or “established sales” stage with some investor demand for “in-development” stage.

Entrepreneurs:

Poor preparation and presentation is the #2 reason why investors reject companies. If you are an entrepreneur who has not raised money from strangers before, look at the Investor Ready 101 seminars on Monday Sept 26 in Vancouver or Thursday Sept 29 on Vancouver Island. Registration ends Sept 22 for these sessions.

Then get your company registered for the main event by the close date of October 3rd, 2005.  The actual Angel Forum event itself will take place on October 25th.
