With over 20 years experience in working with entrepreneurs to provide access to capital, originally through pitch events to the angel group, Network of Business Angels & Investors (NBA&I) she managed and rebuilt to be one of the top 50 in the country according to Fortune Mag List of Angel Investor Groups, and at the big mult-day conference Southeast Private Equity Conference (SPEC) and now through general solicitation (crowd finance), and teaching entrepreneurs to be self sufficient in raising capital, she knows what she is talking about and does not sugar coat it.
Entrepreneurs from idea stage to growth stage will benefit from this information, of course, but also investors that are working with startups as mentors or active investors.
