The Seattle Angel Conference III is coming up on May 16th. The deadline for registering as a presenting startup is Monday, March 4th. I’m signing up to present MoonTango and I think you should sign up too. The reasons are simple.
1) SAC III will be making at least a $100k investment in one of the six teams that make it to the finals. That a 17% chance of effectively “winning” a series chunk of investment capital. This is unprecedented in Seattle.
2) The value of the help you get on your startup by going through the diligence process is worth magnitudes more than the $99 you pay to register as a presenting startup. Don’t believe me? Read what Corengi thought about the experience at the last SAC event even though they didn’t win the finals.
3) That $99 is effectively zero dollars, because you don’t pay anything more than a standard conference ticket to also be a presenting startup. You just gotta let them know that you want to be considered to present.
4) Even if you don’t win (or even make the finals) where else are you going to spend an afternoon with a room full of angel investors
If I’ve persuaded you to register to present at SAC III and you win $100K (that is, you beat me) then all I ask is that you buy me lunch and tell me what you learned along the way.
Now go sign up… before the deadline and before the conference prices go up on Monday!!
