How NOT to Raise Money From an Angel Investor — Free Lecture June 28
Fairfield University’s Dolan School of Business and School of Engineering along with IACT: The Inventors Association of Connecticut, present a free lecture on angel investing.
Where: Fairfield University DiMenna-Nyselius Library, Room 101
1073 North Benson Road, Fairfield, CT 06824
What: You've probably seen a variety of talks and articles telling you how to pitch your ideas and raise money from investors. Many of these resources have excellent advice but they only tell part of the story. Through a blend of real life examples, humor and self-analysis, you'll learn how to avoid some of the tragically common mistakes and self-destructive tendencies of those who seek outside funding.
Who: Featured speaker, Ed Goodwin has invested in 26 start–ups and has been an active angel investor since 2009. He currently serves as President of the Angel Investor Forum, Connecticut's largest angel investing group. Goodwin started his scientific career as a PhD student and then postdoc at Case Western Reserve University where some of his research led to patented methods that improved production of commercially important bio-molecules including Rituxan, the number one anticancer drug and Case's largest patent revenue to date.
This presentation is free and open to the public and made possible by support from IACT, The Inventors Association of Connecticut, The Dolan School of Business and the School of Engineering at Fairfield University.
