Pre Conference Workshop 7 - Angel Investing Overview: An Angel Resource Institute Seminar Brought to USASBE
Saturday, January 9 - 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Bob Okabe, Angel Resource Institute at Williamette University
Executive Center 2A
Understanding the fundamentals of how to execute early stage investment deals is the key to increasing investment returns, growing successful companies and creating jobs.
The Angel Resource Institute (ARI) is part of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation's Power of Angel Investing series of seminars and workshops. To date, ARI has delivered over 300 courses throughout the United States and in 14 other countries. One of the leading ARI seminars is "Angel Inventorying Overview.” When the seminar is offered to angel groups, the cost is $6,000. But ARI has offered the course at no cost to the USASBE membership at the forthcoming conference.
The seminar is taught in an interactive classroom-style format that includes presentations, distinguished panel discussions, and case studies. Programs are also delivered by ARI's renowned faculty of certified lead instructors, all of whom have 10-plus years of angel investment and entrepreneurial leadership experience. For content ARI does not rely solely on the experience of one or two successful investors. The real value of ARI's content comes from the Kauffman Foundation and the collective experience and best practices of thousands of individual investors and angel investment groups.
As an entrepreneurship educator, we believe the seminar will prove invaluable to you, both from the interaction during the seminar and also the extensive materials that that will be provided, which will prove helpful when you return to your class on campus.
