Swimming With Sharks and Dating Angels

Saturday, July 26
11:50 am - 1:05 pm

Hyatt Regency Cincinnati

Hundreds of angel investor networks are writing checks every day. Yet, less than 1% of all private equity capital is invested in black-owned companies. How then do startups raise the much needed seed capital and established companies raise the much needed capital to scale and grow. In this exclusive panel session learn how and when to engage with the investment ecosystem, how to get and stay in the “right room” of angels and venture capitalists and how to create a new culture of black, brown and women owned angel investors.
