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 and after the panel at the cocktail party!
