This interactive seminar will focus on best practices when pitching to angel  investors (both specialists and non-specialists). We will discuss the interests of angel investors and what attracts them to invest in a company. You may be surprised by their perspective on opportunities and how it may be different than the way founders and scientists look at their technologies.  Questions will be welcomed throughout and at  the end of the seminar.

Event is FREE and open to the public. (Register below)

Lunch will be provided.
