Building a more funded Seattle

For those of you that are aware I run TechCafe and have taken on a role managing the Seattle Angel Conference Fund. Between the two activities I am actively putting on a lot of events this summer focusing heavily on funding. Early stage funding is a critical component to accelerating companies to find out if they will succeed or fail. Which is why I am involved with the Seattle Angel Conference. If you are a budding entrepreneur looking for funding or a budding angel investor looking to go through our training program – you need to be a part of these events! This is exactly what the Angel Conference specializes in! The conference itself will be in November; however, the investors and startups need to be registered by the beginning of September. Btw, If you are interested in sponsoring a conference full of early stage entrepreneurs and investors please let me know!

So here’s the schedule:



Topic & Registration

Yes that is A LOT of events!! You’ll notice the specific speakers and topics that are focused on the issues related to funding. If you miss the old TechCafe events and don’t want to dive deep on funding startups… not to worry – the event on the 15th will have a bit of a profile of Currently and a few words from Cairncross.

As usual, you may want to follow Josh’s blog where more details on the events and investing will be published. All TechCafe specific stuff will still be posted on the TechCafe site. You may also want to start following the Seattle Angel Conference blog as there is a lot of great content there as well.

If you have an idea for an event, want to speak, want to sponsor, etc. Don’t hesitate to reach out. We are always looking forward to connecting with new people and ideas.
