In cooperation with Microsoft, China Entrepreneurs is organizing an angel investor pitch day for 20 start-ups on April 17th as part of their BizSpark-MEGA Angel Investment Forum 2012.
With many VC’s crowding around in the series A funding rounds, competition to invest in start-ups is pushing them downstream to more early stage companies. This is a good sign for start-ups looking for angel investment and should encourage more innovative ideas.
If you are interested in attending, the event will be a full day from 9-5pm and includes a keynote presentation about “The State of Entrepreneurship in China” as well as a panel discussion about “Finding the Right Angel Investors: Not Just Cash But Also Strategic Value”, “Constant Innovation”, and an “Introduction to the latest technology”. Lunch and coffee will also be provided. The series of panels will be great for start-ups who need to consider the extra value added by investors beyond cash, such as relationships and resources; as well as how to continually innovate with new technology.
For start-ups looking to pitch, you will have 5-8 minutes to present to a panel of high level Angel and VC judges. Winning teams will be awarded with prizes and potentially attract investment. They are particularly interested in seeing innovative breakthrough mobile and internet start-ups, so here’s your chance!
When: Tuesday April 17th, 9-5pm
Cost: Standard:800RMB/Start-ups: 200 RMB
