Interested in meeting and pitching to early-stage Angel Investors and Venture Capitalists in Orange County? Register for the FundingPost event on Tuesday, April 3rd, 2018.
ICOs raised a global record 1.1 billion dollars in December 2017 alone according to TokenMarket. That's HUGE, but what exactly does that mean? Can anyone do an ICO? Should everyone? and what exactly is an ICO anyway? FundingPost has hosted over 400 sold-out venture events in 22 cities over the past 18 years.
At our next event, the panel of investors will focus on ICOs & Early-Stage Venture Investing: How to meet investors, pitch them, and what it really takes to get them to write you a check! We will be discussing trends in Early-Stage Investing, hot sectors, sectors that these Angels and VCs look at, things that are most important to them when they are considering an Investment, the best and worst things an entrepreneur can do to get their attention, additional advice for entrepreneurs, and, of course, the best ways to reach these and other Investors. There will be plenty of time for networking with the Investor panelists, both before the panel & after the panel at the Cocktail Party!
We're excited to have the Eureka Building sponsor our event location! In 2013, Peter Polydor had his Eureka Moment: to offer Orange County’s entrepreneurs a centrally-located, all-inclusive, utilitarian space where creativity can flourish and business can thrive. Launched in January 2014, the Eureka Building is a 3-acre creative office, coworking and event campus in Irvine designed to offer Orange County’s startups a community, accelerate innovation and support local entrepreneurship.

I am looking forward to future events and future investments in Las Vegas entrepreneurs."- Don Sorensen, Las Vegas Angel Investor
