Second Meeting with an Angel Investor

After my first pitch practice class ended, a gentleman handed me his business card. Little did I know that this gesture would eventually lead to a second meeting with an angel investor. I usually collect cards and try to remember to connect with everyone I meet by email or social media. As a matter of fact, that day I met two young entrepreneurs launching a cool app The Corda– the last business card you’ll ever need. They sent a beta test version to my iPhone. The founder sent his contact information and his info seamlessly populated to my iPhone including his photograph.

A few days later while inspecting my business cards, I noticed one of the cards appeared to be a venture capital firm. Oh yeah! That’s the gentleman who handed me the card after pitch class. I sent him an email on September 29th and received no response. (more…)


The 30 Second Pitch Video

On September 26, 2014 I attended a pitch practice class held in Buckhead at Atlanta Tech Village. I arrived a few minutes before 2pm, walked into a big open room, and a very tall-distinguished looking gentleman was standing to my left. Atlanta-Tech-VillageThe gentleman smiled asking, “are you here for pitch practice class?” I said, “yes!” and I introduced myself. He said, “grab a chair and follow me!” I grabbed a chair and we both proceeded to walk towards an already full conference room.

People moved over to make space. I propped up my chair, sat down and tried to make sense out of the current presentation. I soon became aware that the class started earlier, but my source stated 2pm. The gentleman speaking was the last presenter. After his presentation, the class asked questions and offered their advice. Then I heard ‘the voice!’ A voice from the head of the table, “who else wants to pitch?” Eyes started rolling around and most of them were looking at me. (more…)


First Meeting with an Angel Investor

I decided to write this post, about my first meeting with an Angel Investor today. Before the clock strikes midnight, I’m pulling myself away from watching episodes of Downton Abby to unwind, just to share my story.

Friday, we both agreed over the phone to meet for lunch. I planned a meeting at a familiar restaurant called ‘Nan’ Thai fine dining in Atlanta at 12:30pm.  Nan is a good place to meet. The ambience is nice. The place is relatively quiet, so I figured we wouldn’t have any problems hearing each other speak at Nan. Cool. I sent the address to the Angel Investor by text message.

My intuition prompted me to double check the web page for the restaurant hours of operation. I’m so glad I did. Nan opens at 5pm on Sundays. Next choice is a place to meet, eat and greet closer to his 2pm appointment. Here’s the second text message sent on Friday: (more…)
