Your palms are sweaty. Your legs are shaking. You can’t get the words out of your mouth fast enough. Finally, everything starts to flow. You’re in the zone. Then suddenly, without notice, the buzzer rings and you must move on.

This is not the typical speed-dating scenario. This is how you will feel as an entrepreneur who will soon make investor pitches at the 2019 Speed Dating with Investors event March 7, 2019.

Why the anxiety? The presentations will be made one-on-one to many potential investors including members of Tech Coast Angels and you’ve only got few short minutes to pitch, Q&A and listen to seasoned advice and recommendation. That’s not a lot of time.

Fortunately, TCVN and the Speed Dating with Investors event is designed to introduce entrepreneurs and startup companies to the world of angel investing. This is not a sales event. Our focus is education, networking and the potential opportunity to connect entrepreneurs with investors. In addition to the TCVN team, investors will be present to speak to participants about their needs. Spots are limited.  Acceptance will be on a first come first serve basis, so entrepreneurs, sign up early!
