January Investor Meeting Highlights
January 24, 2019
By: Dennis Ensing
Our first Investor Meeting of 2019 was held this morning. Attendance was a little lean as our new Mayor held his first State of the City breakfast at the same time, understandably competing for our members' attention.
Snapshots of the 3 ventures who presented this morning are included below. Deeper dives with company principals are also scheduled as noted - details of location and dial-in to be provided separately, or on request.
Investment Update: Funding closings are expected in February for December presenters Chalk and SmartTones, as well as Fable Tech and SensOR Medical, who presented earlier. Due diligence will be completed on all of these in the coming weeks but there is still space for interested accredited investors.
Event Update: Our next Investor Meeting is scheduled for 7:30 am on Thursday February 21 in the MVP Lab at the Convergence Centre. Also on February 21 from 1-5 pm Angel One is holding a NACO Academy Session on "Board Governance". Stay tuned for details of our full 2019 Lunch & Learn Series to be announced soon. Please let me know if you are an accredited investor and interested in attending any of these.
