Seattle Angel Conference

The Seattle Angel Conference event will be May 31st. Over the last two months, the investors and the applying companies have been in a due diligence and filtering process.

We would like to ask for your help to spread the word about this project and invite you to the event.

As I’ve written previously, a primary mission of the Seattle Angel Conference is to help people learn about the Angel investing process by engaging in a group based angel investment process.

We have 19 investors contributing. At the final event on May 31st, each of the finalists will present and the investors will vote on which of the finalists will receive the aggregate investment (roughly $100K).

Out of the 26 startups that applied this year, we are now down to the six finalists:

Homeschool Snowboarding
