The Making of an Angel Investor
06:30PM - 09:00PM
Join us for a moderated panel discussion with Dave McClure (500 Startups) and Kevin Laws (Angel List).
Following the panel will be breakout sessions run by Bedy Yang (500 Startups), Raja Kapadia (Healthonomy), and Bill Tobin (Strayer Consulting Group).
There are countless articles and books on how to start a business and become a successful entrepreneur. There are courses and research on the venture capital industry and how to become a successful venture capitalist. But with the changing of funding requirements by many agile startups, the role of angel investors becomes ever more important and ubiquitous.
But what makes a successful angel investor? More and more, it could be someone who may not necessarily see angel investing as a full time profession yet it may become an integral part of their work and social fabric. The speakers will share their insights and experiences on what makes an angel investor.
The Stanford Entrepreneurs Club is co-sponsoring this event with the Stanford Palo Alto Club, Stanford Angels and Entrepreneurs Club, Harvard Business School Northern California Club, and Harvard Club of San Francisco.
