Angel Capital: Effective uses of Time, Treasure and Talent
Feb 7, 2023 from 5:30 – 6:30 PM ET
Join the New Hampshire Women’s Investor Network as we discuss how angels can best contribute to the success of the startups they invest in. We welcome Mary Gale (Associate Professor of Practice, Entrepreneurship Division, Babson College), Jenine Winesuff Rubin (Director of Operations for Innolution and active angel investor) and Sidney Collin (Co-founder and CEO of De Oro Devices) to discuss their experiences as angels and entrepreneurs and how life changes for the companies and their founders as they receive investments of time, treasure and talent from angels. We will explore the difficulties women entrepreneurs face in getting funding, discuss how to determine what type of capital is best at what stages of a company and consider the ways angels can be supportive.
We hope you come away from the event with a better understanding of the following:
- Knowing how to effectively give time/talent/treasure to organizations as an angel.
- Understanding what types of time/talent/treasure you need from angels as an entrepreneur.
