TECH COAST ANGELS LAUNCHES “MEET THE ANGELS” PROGRAM
FREE MIXER – JANUARY 18th, 2010
Open to All Entrepreneurs Interested in Company Startup and Angel Funding
Irvine, Calif., January 6, 2010 – A “Meet the Angels” mixer designed to encourage and support new entrepreneurs, will be held January 18, 2010 and is sponsored by the Tech Coast Angels (TCA), the nation’s largest angel investment network. The mixer is the second in TCA's new program of "Meet the Angels" mixers launched after the success of the first event, which generated demand from attendees for more mixers. It will be held in Aliso Viejo, from 5:00pm-7:00pm and is open without charge to anyone seeking information about angel funding, startups or other aspects of early stage company development.
According to Stu Roberts, president of TCA’s Orange County Chapter, “Entrepreneurs have questions about funding their startup and our mixer is the perfect place to start collecting information by interacting with and hearing directly from angel investors. We want our customers, the entrepreneurs, to learn what companies TCA is funding and provide them with an informal setting to answer their questions.”
The last TCA Mixer held in November was attended by more than 100 entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs are encouraged to RSVP as soon as possible at www.seedtrack.org/events as space is limited. Address and directions are listed on the website.
Roberts continued, "TCA is working hard to provide entrepreneurs with the tools and opportunities to fund their dreams. We encourage all entrepreneurs to join us for this informal event."
